I Am Affected By the Weather

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 905 People

    I think I have reverse SAD; I love the cold,

    rain, and snow. I hate summertime. Way too warm, I despise being sweaty, and I don't want to go anywhere or do anything when it's like that outside.

    I Can Predict The Future Via The Weather!

    I am a seer when it comes to the weather. If my arms hurt, there will be a change in the weather soon, within the next 48 hours. If its so intense I can't lift them or can barely endure the pain, it'll happen very soon, within the next 24 hours. If my legs hurt, there will be a...

    I find trees and sunshine

    and warmth, green grass and flowers and streams to be so life-giving!!! I hate that all of those things disappear in winter. :/ Another way I feel suffocated up here.

    The weather always affects my moods.  It got down to freezing the other night and two of them died.  I put a heater in there with the rest.  I am proud of all my moods.  I have lazy ones, bright ones, stupid ones and ones of about every kind you could imagine...

    I wasn't always affected by the weather,

    but I think living in sunny Southern California has made me pretty dependent on the sun. I have a tough time getting out of bed in the morning when it isn't sunny and I find myself with less energy on rainy days than I do normally. And when storms linger and it rains for...

    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.

    I hate gray days, it was 70° yesterday

    and today it's in the 40s and tomorrow we're having snow. The weather does really affect my mood it's a lot. I wish I was able to live somewhere else.

    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...

    I live in Colorado Springs where it's very cold fall/winterish.. coolish to warm for Spring and then freaking hot in the summer. This year is one of the worst and it's killing my allergies. There would be three days of cold and freezing, a day of nice weathers, a day of cold...

    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...

    I have SAD (plus anxiety & depression). I hate this time of year. It gets dark at 5. And in my part of the world winter is usually wet. So, not only is daylight scarce but it's usually cloudy too. I get these gray, rainy, cold days & my mood just bottoms out. It makes me...

    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.
