am I the only one who gets a minor wave of depression when the temperature drops?
No, it's pretty common. I get it as well and it's called Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD...wow, I never really realized that was the acronym for it rofl). Anyway, I get it all the time. I like it sometimes because that's when I write my best poetry.
how am I going to get laid now? jeez
depressed + having no game whatsoever = nasty combination
I heard that lots of people get it, but especially when i was younger, autumn and winter meant a very positive change of emotion for me, while i got more "depressed" (though this is an exaggeration) in summer.
Nowadays i can find positive things about all seasons.
Maybe it also depends on where you live. I live in a little village in the forests in germany and i think if you see nature every day at least from your window it is easyer to find positive things about seasons you generaly dislike.
Yep, im pretty depressed right now. Then again, the Summer here was dreadful, so its been cold for 4 odd months, with more to come.
Fall is the best season. It never lasts long enough. I get sick of summer after a while. Fall is too sporadic here. If it would just stay at 60 degrees for a few weeks I'd be happy. But it's 70 for a few days, and then 45, then back up.
I think seasonal depression is sort of made up. It has to with the days getting shorter. Since your body normally equates darkness with going to bed, you get a little sleepy earlier in the evening, and people equate the sluggishness with depression. Plus there's generally less to do during the winter, so boredom contributes too.
dodens erased my emo crybaby message
Yes, you are the only one.
This seems fairly common...any wonder why such dark music comes from the Scandinavian countries. Iv heard Sweden & Norway have some of the highest suicide numbers in the world
Along with dentists.
If someone is from California, or Arizona, or any other hot states, or countries then I doubt you will get depressed during winter, cos its probably still quite hot. But North-Western Europeans countries have shit, rainy, cold weather and its a bummer.
Fall is my favorite season followed by spring since my birthday is in March
No, it's not always hot here in Tucson, Arizona. We get down around freezing on some nights in the winter, and we have cold, wet and rainy times, and just regular old cold winter temps (you know, 40F-60F). But I think this depression thing is tied more to the sun than to the temperature. Maybe I am wrong. But we have close to 365 days of sunshine here in Tucson. That is, days where the sun becomes visible at some point during the day. And probably 250-300 of them are mostly sunny.
Its to do with light and temp, cos yeh its gay that the sun goes down at 4-5 on a mid winter day, but also just the fact when I go out I have to wear a coat and stuff. Hate it.
Me too. I hate wearing coats amd extra clothes. But doesn't that hairy chest of yours protect you?
Nah, I remain cold, but im sure Kip Winger is snug as a bug.
I get depressed about once a month.
Or if anything else happens in between that period of time
It's the absolute opposite for me. Rainy days make me more cheerful whereas heat waves, sandstorms, high humidity and all related atrocities of our awful climate can be really depressing at times. Not to mention, physically and mentally exhausting.
When it's cold, you can put on some extra clothes. But how do you escape a heat wave? Peel your skin off?
Sure, setting the air conditioner to run all day long is a solution of sorts, but a costly one.
I love winter. I feel more comfortable, but in summer, I just feel uncomfortable all the time and my allergies are stronger.
