Does diverticulosis lead to mood swings?? At one moment I am very happy and at the second moment suddenly I feel very angry. This happens regularly.

    I've suffered with this for three years now and I think the thing that makes me depressed is loosing the mornings very often, it's hard to plan anything. I just keep drinking the fibogel and hope for the best. Good luck try and stay positive because you'll get no help from doctors

      Yup you are right. But actually my health is quite improving after I started "Ayurvedic Medicines" but still I am not normal.

    This is a disease that makes you very aware that it needs a lot of your attention to keep it at bay, I have had it for 6 years and it is my mind continuously , waiting to feel "the Pain" I think I have it more or less under control ,so relaxed is my state of mind ,at the moment, but I do agree ,and that I do  sometimes feel "WHY ME "" and go on a Downer, which is no help, because stress seems to egg it on. Fresh air helps me, if it's just to go into the garden .

    So, you are not by yourself,,

      It's really irritating. Many times due to such moodswings I talk very rudely with my friends. So now whenever I get angry I prefer to stay alone and quiet for some time. Thank you and you also take care.

      Hello.,, thought you might like some help, and there again, maybe not, but here it is ,just in case ,regarding your request for a dietician, or any help at all ,would be nice. four years ago I was going down the same road as yourself, in shock,asking for help, looking at the pathetic diet sheet I had been given, so I started the 

      Divi Diners  forum, only to find there were dozens of us floundering around with the FOOD ,do and don't list mostly don't's .It was like a door opening, with everybody joining in .So ,,may I suggest you have a look at the site,and if nothing else ,it will make you smile, and certainly show that you are not on your own.

      Just Google Divi Diners. and off you go.

      Thank you so much, the only thing is i can,t seem to get a link for it, do you have one i can go straight to, tried to google it but don,nt seem to take me there, thank you so much for your help, with what i can EAT? And can,t, im so fed up with this bland food, then you get dr tell you go home and try every thing, he said if your in trouble the next day y8u know then you can,t eat it, not really helpful at all, im so worried about my weight loss, sadly my own gp and hospital don,t really want to know about this DD, which is making me a nervous wreck, again many thanks and to all you people that suffer with this complaint

    I find something very funny or a heartwarming film to lose myself in.  Always does the trick!

    Laughter is a great medicine in my opinion.
