Seasonal Depression

5 Nov

I have never been diagnosed as a person with seasonal depression and the word depression scares me so much that I highly doubt I’ll ever go get checked for it!! I can say though that when it starts getting cold out, I start curling up into a little ball 🙂 Sure I think it’s gorgeous outside but I’d rather be inside! Give me a blanket, a book, and some warm yummy food and I’ll be fine inside thanks.

I don’t exactly know what it is but my motivation goes out the window and I hide out until the sun comes back out to warm things up. I used to think I would be moody during the winter but now I think it was just my crazy teenage hormones. HAHA I remember the first time I met B it was so nice outside and I said, “If you can handle me in the winter we’ll be just fine together.” Yeah .. okay so maybe there is something wrong with me but the more people I meet the more I am hearing they feel the same way! If I could get groceries, medicine, and a doctor to come to the house in the winter without it costing an arm and leg I would probably not leave the house unless I had absolutely had to.

WebMD‘s list of signs of seasonal depression are:

decreased levels of energy

difficulty concentrating

fatigue

increase in appetite

increased desire to be alone

increased need for sleep

weight gain

Not all those symptoms actually fit me so I that makes me feel better but the people that are diagnosed with this have an option of light therapy and oh my how much I want this to feel like I have been out in the sun all day when I haven’t is TOTALLY AWESOME!! If I could lay out in the sun and not get burnt to death, cancer, or something worse I would. I love the sun! I love the way I look when I am tan, I love the feeling of complete comfort it gives me. I love how relaxed it makes me feel and I wish it was sunny all year long! 

I am missing summer already!!!

I have no idea what brought up this post but there’s just one more random thing you now know about me 🙂

Love Always,

J

    I diagnosed myself with seasonal depression
    and the worst feeling there is.
    Actually there is a valid reason to be depressed upon,
    like anybody else 🙂
    but have to perk myself up everyday.
    🙂
