I Am Affected By the Weather

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 678 People

    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...

    Reverse Sad

    I cannot stand the sun - especially the heat! If it is grey and rainy I feel like I can move about freely, breath, love, and live.... if it is hot and sunny, I just want to sleep until nightfall or die or anything else but experience. I don't know why.... I just feel more alive...

    Feels Like Spring

    Here in western Nebraska where i live it feels like spring this morning outside.  I can feel the chill of winter in the air, but there is no wind at all so  i can also feel the warmth of the sun on my face. My healing/moods are so tuned in to the seasons in a way...

    When it's a sunny day,

    I pretty much feel happy and I get to go out to have fun. But since it's pouring rain, every bad thought and emotion rushes through my head. I feel so ugly and gross right now. A pair of jeans I wore before used to fit, no it's tight up above, but the bottom is huge and saggy...

    The weather affects my mood,

    I hate winters, winters are getting longer and worse every year, I find myself very moody and depressed during the winter, I wish I could move somewhere it is warm all year round as I prefer summer.

    Tornadoes...

    Constant Changes

    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...

    I Don`t Run Hot, But Cold...

    I can`t stand the heat. I would not be able to comfortably live in a place live Arizona. Being a Canadian chick I always like it on the cooler side. I love when it rains; it doesn`t depress me at all.

    My Wrist

    I know when the weather is going to change. I can tell it by the way my wrist hurts. I had surgery several years ago and ever since, I've been able to predict the weather by the way it feels.

    rather be in warm weather than the cold weather. For me the cold gets me depressed about everything. I need to move somewhere warm. Take me to Florida. Amen.

    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...

    Is It Summer Yet?

    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...

    Happiness Scale

    Definately, my happiness scale shoots down to zero when the sky is grey and there's going to be a storm. Outside just looks so depressing and unhappy. When it's sunny, the happiness scale rises to ten but falls to eight if it's cold. Rain is around five and cloudy is a three...

    Sun

    I belong to the somewhat silly and predictable species that adores the sun.  When the sun is out, my mood gets reasonable. When it's summer and the skies are clear and blue and there's no need for clothes, it is even better. Equally, when it rains non stop for days...

    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...
