Hi everyone. I just made an account a few minutes ago. Although I’m not depressed, I think this topic may be related to depression from other people’s point of view. This is a long rant, so be prepared. I’m just looking to see if I could get advice on how to deal with it or perhaps what this means. I absolutely hate sunny weather. I love it when it’s overcast because the clouds make me feel at ease and are beautiful to look at. Sunny weather irritates my skin and hurts my eyes. I’ve liked overcast for as long as I can remember. I don’t know if I have a reverse SAD of some sorts… I am very picky about weather. I only like it when it’s overcast and the temperature is under 60 F. Hearing people say that a sunny day is beautiful annoys me because the sun makes me miserable. I just want to run away from the sun whenever I see it outside. People say that the clouds are depressing, but I really can’t see why. A few weeks ago it was cloudy for almost a week straight, and I thought it was marvelous… A smaller reason why I dislike hot and sunny is because I can’t wear my favorite clothes, which are coats, boots, scarves. I check the weather a lot, and it seems like Seattle has the best weather in the world. Too bad it was sunny when I visited… Maybe I’m just weird, but here are my tolerance levels for most temperature ranges (only in overcast): Below 40: I dunno, I live in California. I don’t like the weather here. 40-50: A bit cool. I can still wear short sleeves if I want, though I usually wear long sleeves. I like it. 50-60: Perfect. I can wear short or long sleeves, but I stick with short most of the time because it’s not actually cold. 60-70: Warm. I prefer it to be cooler. 70-80: Hot. I try to escape the sun. 80-90: Very hot. It’s hard to think. 90-100: I feel like dying. I can’t think of anything other than about how hot it is. 100+: Don’t want to think about it. The sunlight messes with my brain. My body will feel inconsistently hot or cold when there is sunlight. Sometimes 50 or 60 degrees in the sun will make me shiver or sweat. It’s kind of random. I have actually sweat in 56 degrees in the sunlight before when I was wearing short sleeves… Am I secretly depressed or weird or something? Hope someone has advice to offer. Thanks in advance.
