if you find that a crappy mood sets in for more than a 24 hours please don’t  blame your boss, your significant other, or your period.  and certainly don’t let these pharma-pimps convince that you are suffering from a deficiency of the latest psychotropic drug. though a cleanse might be in order, if that less-than rosy disposition returns after the empty colon euphoria wears off, it could be a clue to something much more important.
