I used to be like that but then I stopped being a teenage goth.
they have a line "we love the winter, it brings us closer together" and they have talked about having a reverse SAD in a way. I can see the theory, I think of winter as being all warm and snuggly, curled up in front of a fire. Christmas on the horizon, a hot drink in hand. Cold crisp mornings where you put on three jumpers and can see your breath in the air. This is usually towards the end of summer I start looking forward to winter, the weather is turning but doesn't really know what it is doing, I think I yearn for just knowing whether to put a coat on or not. Reality is that it is months of interminable freezing cold, dark all the time and misery until spring kicks in.
Summer's my least favourite season, but that's because i don't really like the heat and get hay fever. Don't think there necessarily has to be a condition to encapsulate that, i just don't like the heat and get hay fever, and so both of those things naturally effect my mood.
Whereas I completely come alive and am filled with energy as soon as there's a bit of sun in the sky.
Probably one of the many reasons that she's my ex.
but one of those overdiagnosed things that people say they have when they haven't, same goes for stuff like OCD. Disliking certain seasons is different to going into a spiralling depression like someone with SAD (presumably), just as liking being organised is not OCD compared to someone who has a panic attack if they don't open and close a door 6 times.
I can tell you that SAD is definitely a thing that anyone can get
though some are more susceptible than others
i watched all 86 episodes of the Sopranos in ten days whilst not even getting dressed, showering, and surviving on a diet of only ice cream direct from the tub, takeaway pizza, lager and Southern Comfort.
but otherwise, that sounds like a cracking 10 days.
think i'm having it at the moment. at least i'm having a prolonged terrible mood for the last week or so despite everything in my life going decently at the moment
