• Does a (virtual) hug help? Probably not. But here’s one anyway…just in case! ***HUGS!!***

    So you are Solar Powered!

    I have a girlfriend like that (I don’t mind any weather – doesn’t seem to affect me), and she moved to Queensland (top of Australia) with work, but it suits her so much because she is so much happier.

  • That sounds right about how I am too. I suppose I should be thanking god (or someone) that Amy was born in Spring and that this little one is due in Summer.

    (((hugs))) You know where I am if you need me, okay?

    I hate the winter too…Coupled with PMS it makes me very irritable and unpleasant. It’s not all bad, and wearing my hubby’s Timberland socks helps me feel a little warmer. Hang in there it’s TN…it could be 74 degrees tomorrow 😉

  • I am in CT and hate the cold weather. Not only is it cold, but it gets dark too early. They really need to get rid of Daylight Savings Time. Most people don’t want it. Our cold weather lasts for a long time and I always complain that it is not fit for humans. lol

    Great post. I choose to read it metaphorically, and it’s a perfect description of that painful spiral that inevitably follows a high. I know they say that you can’t have mountaintop experiences without going through valleys, but that doesn’t make the valleys any more pleasant.

  • I’m with Chris. It said, in words better than I could put together, exactly how I feel. So hopeful and so despairing. Beautiful post.

  • I’m not clear as to how to interpret this, but off the top of my head…I was pregnant last winter and extremely depressed. I felt like a mime trapped in a glass box….I missed the greenery. The color. White can be so blinding. ( especially up here in the frozen f^&*( tundra…;) Everyday seems like a blizzard….Hark? What is that I hear, spring is on the way! :)

    Take good care of yourself and that bump! Being pregnant is a full time 24-7 job….whew.

  • Love the analogy — I feel that way some days during winter, but we lived for years were it was cold but sunny more than cold and gloomy. Now we live were it isn’t peticularly cold but it is gray, gloomy more than sunny during the heart of winter (Jan. and Feb.) I think I prefer the cold and sunny.

    again — nice writing.

    In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.
    Albert Camus

    Here’s to finding your invincible summer, Lotus.

  • […] Yesterday’s post is an illustration of the Seasonal Cycle I’ve identified in myself. It’s a literary painting, in extreme, of the way I almost always feel the worst during the bleak months. I have never been diagnosed by a professional, so I am loathe to apply any kind of disorder or condition by name (and I really dislike it when other people do that, with all manner of psychological disorders). […]

  • 3 words:

    Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).

    Something tells me you may already know all about that….since you are a psych major and all.
