Feelings are signals / Feelings are good

I was asked, I lurve questions,
if I was feeling Melancholy.
This was my response::

I like questions
sorry about delays
been busy
the word - I looked it up ............

melancholy |ˈmelənˌkälē|
a deep, pensive, and long-lasting sadness.
• another term for melancholia (as a mental condition).
• historical another term for black bile .
sad, gloomy, or depressed : she felt a little melancholy | the dog has a melancholy expression. See note at glum .
• causing or expressing sadness; depressing : the study makes melancholy if instructive reading.

No not melancholy
I have been reflectively considering things 
during an unsettling period/home move/job move.

When I experience a feeling
I try to examine it
I don't feel this thing all the time
or for a day or so
it is a moment and I grab it because 
I want to learn from
positive feeling
negative feeling too.

Yesterday I was hit with tiredness.
Like I just wanted to sleep.
A deep exhaustion.
I felt it and contacted the feelings.
I felt deep sadness
but I was not sad.
I did some analysis and
I had some food and I felt - normal!
Is norman OK?

I have been through a strange time
but now more settled
but I don't know if 'settled' is good????

I do delight in feelings.
Especially unusual ones.
I google them !

Would love to know what you think
and feel - even more vital!!
Feelings are signals
Feelings are good
Pains are signals
Pains are good

We would be in a real mess without them ................
