    It's Weird...

    ...how the weather affects me. Sunny days make me cranky, lazy and tired because of the darned heat, rainy days make me hyper (seriously, I act like I'm high on caffeine O_o) and cloudy days make me creative.

    I love rain, but it makes me feel sad

    and depressed. It's the same with cold cloudy weather. I don't really like it when its hot, but when the sun shines through the window and brightens up the house I get happy.

    I Can Feel A Storm Coming

    I know that I'm not alone in this, but I can feel bad weather coming. The current weather can be sunny and/or clear, but I just get exhausted when there's a low front nearby. The bizarre thing about being a 'human barometer' is that I KNOW that I am one, but I always attribute...

    Mother Nature And Her Wrath...

    Completely!

    Oh, boy, am I affected by the weather!  If it's gray and rainy outside, and I don't have to go outside, I'm in bliss.  In fact, the stormier the better. If it's gray and rainy outside and I have to leave the house, I'm depressed. If it's foggy outside, I'm depressed...

    Fall/winter is creeping in.

    Can barely hear out if one ear because the atmospheric changes are making my ears feel plugged. Why can't summer come back? It's supposed to snow here in 2 days *sigh*

    Winter's coming. It snowed yesterday.

    I'm actually ok with it. I like winter well enough, I guess. I like the change in seasons. It's sort of exciting. I just don't like being cold. I don't like how the snow restricts my access to the wilderness. And I really start to miss the green, all the signs of life. What's...

    It's raining with lighting

    and thunder right now. I live in the desert so we don't get much rain. It makes me get anxiety and panic even though I love to hear the rain. I guess it's because I'm scared of the dark.

    It Determines My Day And My Mood

    The weather does have a profound affect on my feelings or how the day ends up going for me. If it's sunny outside when I wake up, then the whole day I will just feel energized and stay in a pretty good mood. If it's cloudy outside when I wake up, then I will feel pretty blah and...

    Warm weather particularly affects me,

    it tends to make my anxiety worse and my body is just a cluster of anxiety and hypochondria. Luckily, it's winter now and the climate is cooler so I shouldn't have to worry about it for a while. :)

    During the summer, for some reason,

    I am overtaken by a debilitating, crushing depression. It even gets to a point where colors look duller, I sleep for outrageous amounts of time, and some mornings, I can't even pull myself out of bed; I just lie there and try to muster the energy to move, but it's like I don't...
