Hi everyone in Cyberland,
It’s winter here in Australia at the moment, and I find myself once again being affected by it ~ they call it Seasonal Affective Disorder or the SADS – I call it the Winter Blues, as I do not feel I have a disorder of any type.
We are half way through the season and I really am hanging for spring right now. I know the weather is going to get much worse before it gets better, so I am slightly miserable and depressed ~ all I feel like doing is hibernating away from people (which makes it difficult to go to work…LOL). We don’t get snow where we live but we do get rain and very high winds that seem to go on for days at a time. If we got snow at least I would have something to pretty to admire!!
All I want to do is stay home in my sanctuary and sleep ~ but somehow, sleeping doesn’t come easy as I find myself awake more than I am asleep – plus I am constantly tired. Even typing this I feel my eyes getting heavy!!
I really need to exercise as I have put on so much weight (I can feel my clothes are just too tight), but I feel I don’t have the energy….I used to have energy….I think….it’s sort of a distant memory…..maybe!!
Just going to the shops wears me out so much that I need to crash afterwards..
Today I did the grocery shopping and by the time I got home I was exhausted and wondering how I didn’t stab anyone whilst I was out (stupid people were everywhere today)…and I haven’t done much since (except yawn a lot)…I guess it doesn’t help that everyone else in the family are not feeling well either…makes us all a miserable bunch of so and so’s!!
I don’t know when my turning point will come – I hope it is soon, but until it does I am just going to go with the flow and not stress about it too much (because if I stress about it things will get worse).
So how do you deal with the “Winter Blues”….tell me your secrets!!
