S.A.D.

I've self diagnosed myself with S.A.D. Seasonal Affective Disorder. In a nut shell it is when someone is used to one type of weather (such as sun, rain, wind, hurricanes, etc.) and then go through with drawls when they don't receive this specific type of weather on a regular basis. It's a real thing - my psychology graduate co-worker told me about it....

It was cloudy yesterday and I was in the bluest of the blue funks. I would say I was more depressed than grumpy. I just felt blue. I've noticed this to be a frequent event. When it's cloudy, I get sad....or if you will, S.A.D. Of course, I might be using the weather as a scape goat - I'm sure there are better reasons to explain my grumpy moods. However, it's a great excuse for when I have run out of excuses for my behavior. I like to use it one Wyatt. He in turn rolls his eyes at me. Regardless, I'm sticking to my self diagnoses. And I will continue to obsessively visit weather.com daily to count how many big ball of sunshines we'll get for the next ten day forecast.
