Hi there!
I have mixed feeling about the summer. People have often said that now summer is on the way I would/ should feel much better and be less depressed, (to read between the lines 'for God's sake cheer up its summer now). I used to feel even more guilty for feeling low in the summer time.
I don't feel guilty any more as I have a very understanding partner and so I am more easy on myself and if I am depressed on a lovely warm day then that's is just how it is.

Marian Keyes, the writer, is very open about her depression and also of her loathing of summer and heat. You can catch her Vloggs on YouTube, should you want to know more about her experiences.
She is a good old gal in my opinion.

Thank you betterinrecovery, i have googled SAD, and 10% of people affected react badly in summer, also the highest incidence of suicide occurs during spring/summer. Deb

I don't like the heat or the thunderstorms either. Much prefer the Spring.
Just wish it didn't fly by and that dreaded Christmas be here again.

Ignored all the Easter eggs in the shops. All just money making rubbish.

I find it hard because everybody is out with their friends in the pub garden or park, living happy healthy lives then I go home and sit indoors and watch stuff, feeling like I could never have that. Dont mind the temperature, and I like the sun (sometimes i treat it like medicine) but winter I can hide away guilt-free

xx stay strong
