I swear that this “above normal” temperature crap is making my depression come early this year.
In most states the SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) hits people in mid winter because of a lack of light. UV therapy is a treatment for it. I don’t think I have that, I have OCSHD or (Oh Crap Summer is Here Disorder.) We have been in the 80s, and unable to wear the sweaters I hoard every year, waiting for it to drop below 70 maybe even down to 60 so I won’t sweat all day in them. This year, there has been maybe a week of those days. We are hot, I know its Arizona and I should get over it. Winter is usually a beautiful time, get out and play in the lovely 60-70 degree weather… So why are we at 80 nearly every day? A full 11 degrees about normal on average?
All I know is that I want to move to where it snows. I want to bundle up so I’ll sleep better. I want to walk around my house in socks because my toes are cold. I want to wear long sleeve shirts comfortably. I want to wear those jackets I have hidden away.
I miss Winter!
