Mood charting is an exceptionally valuable tool for understanding progress on Recovery. This section contains one (of many) mood charting tools. You can find instructions, a sample chart, and a blank chart you can print and use.
Using Mood Charting gives you a chance to carefully observe how you feel on a daily basis, and then use the results when you visit your doctors to help them understand what you are feeling. That will help your doctors help you.
- To use this material, start with the instruction file to tell you about how to use the forms. The instruction file has quite a few pages. It contains a lot more than just “use the form”. You’ll find guidelines on how to use a diary, how to observe your own feelings, and how to document all that so your doctor can use the data.
- Then, look at the sample form to see an example of what a completed form looks like.
- Then print out one or more copies of the blank form so you can enter your own personal data.
