    Clearly I Live In The Wrong State.

    I love cloudy, overcast weather. When the sun come out it makes me depressed. I get very annoyed when people say, "Isn't it a beautiful day? The sun is shining, there's not a cloud in the sky." I don't think that's beautiful. I even love this weather so much, I'm moving to...

    There's a giant burning orb in the sky

    and it can burn your flesh, it can give you diseases, it can kill you, looking directly at it causes physical pain, and we all think this is okay. We like this orb. We like to go outside and lie around on our backs when this orb is in the sky. children draw cute pictures of this...

    I Have Never Understood What Was So Great About the Sun.

    Ever since I was born, I never liked too spend to much time in the sun. I have a natural reaction of anxiety when I am out in the annoying bright light. I am able to actually look at the sun and every time I do, I feel beyond nauseated. I just feel nauseous anytime the sun's ever...

    It's not that I don't like IT.

    It's that IT doesn't like ME. My mom says I'm allergic to it but, I don't think that's the case. I think I'm just overly sensitive to it. I already got a sun burn this year too. It hurt 'cause I don't tan. It just burns and burns. There's not really a point to this is there...

    Yes, Too Much Sunlight Is Depressing!

    I find the darker, rainier weather is both relaxing and energizing; it mellows out my anxiety, makes me feel more alive and just happier. I could go for days and days with overcast skies and rain (as we did earlier this year) and not feel depressed and actually accomplish a lot...

    Maybe I'm the Oddball...

    Everyone always talks about how sunny days are so beautiful and make them feel so happy, but I just don't really enjoy the sun at all.  It's not as bad as heliophobia...  not a fear at all really.  More an aversion.  When I go out during the day, it just seems...

    Not My Thing.

    I find this all way too cheerful! Plus sunlight always makes me squint because it hurts my eyes terribly.

    But, I Still Like Warm Weather!

    It's weird, I like the heat but can't stand the sun. The sun hurts my eyes and burns my skin. I only enjoy sunsets, and warm summer nights. I know the sun gives our skin "'natural Vitamin D", a nice tan, and grows our plants/food. But, it is still a burden!

    The Detrimental Sun

    I live in sunny southern California, and I find it difficult to live here because I can not have a normal social life. While most people my age are hanging out and having a good time, I am secluded. I have been like this for 5 years now and my entire family recognizes me as a...

    Don't Let the Sun Shine Down On Me

    I burn easy so when it's this time of year I have to cover up or even stop in. (sigh)
