It's that time of year again! Cold, dreary, and dark. My mood becomes exceptionally low during these months which triggers my episodes and makes them much darker. I recall a previous post in which someone related their SAD to MD. I can see the connection. I'm personally off my anti-depressant medication right now but I'm afraid to say that I might be back on it soon. :( Can anyone else relate? God, I can't wait for spring.

Darkness weighs heavily on me, so I'm glad that I live in a sunny place. Nevertheless, now that it's getting colder, I want to stay in bed, even though it's bright outside. Someone on the Yahoo forum, who has I guess stopped daydreaming maladaptively for several years, strongly recommends hopping right out of bed in the morning. Her advice is helping me--although historically my nights have also been a big daydreaming time--and the middles of days. Alright, I can daydream at any time. However, on a weekend day like today, when it's cold outside and I don't have to be anywhere (I should be somewhere, but I don't have to be), my MD pulls at me. A little while ago, I was lying in bed hiding and I almost heard one of my characters calling. Yikes. As I said, I'm glad it's just cold here and not dark too. And I'm grateful that I can jump onto this site and get in touch with people who have similar issues. Knowing I could log on and check in with you guys helped me get up. Alright, it's helping me. I'm still in pjs, but I'm out of bed and more or less in reality.

I get that way in spring and summer. I want to curl up in a ball and never go outside. I have really bad sensory sensitivity. I get hot & uncomfortable, hate the feeling of sweat on my skin and my hair against my face. I already always have an itch somewhere. When it's hot & sunny, I just wanna hibernate and never go out until fall. Hang in there.
