Do you ever struggle to ID your emotions?

I wish I could afford therapy. I don’t want CBT strategies right now, I just want someone to tell me what mood I’m in from time to time. Not knowing and not being able to work it out is frustrating, to put it mildly. I used to just know, I presume it’s ‘normal’ to just know.

Maybe I’m over the fascination of my own symptoms and side effects now, after almost two months of obsessive research. A good sign, I think. When confused, I try to get back to basics.

mood dis·or·der (noun)
    a psychological disorder characterized by the elevation or lowering of a person’s mood, such as depression or bipolar disorder.

My next question is why am I  unable to work out wtf I am feeling. My google fu failed me. I couldn’t work it out and I have no idea if everyone goes through this. A few years ago I noticed I was growing less fond of talking about emotions, but being able to identify them came later (and got steadily worse).
