How do you react to the weather?

Are you affected by the weather?.
I do ,when the barometric pressure goes down I can really feel it I get really sleepy or I have a really hard time waking up in the morning and for the most part have no energy and all I want to really do is sleep.When it's up I have tons of energy and Im wide awake.
I can tell you if it's up or down about 95% of the time.
Anybody else?

Yes, I do, but I react more to the seasons.

Become very energetic in the spring, less so in the summer, and again am active in the fall.

In the winter I go into a torpor, might as well be in hibernation.

But sure do react to the weather on a day to day basis.

living in texas, most people here have bad allergies, seasonal or year-round. I fall into the latter category. Mostly, for me, it's due to the rainy one day and clear and hot the next. And yes, when it's rainy, all I want to do is SLEEP.

I have always considered myself a human barometer. I get sinus headaches often when we have a big drop in pressure, and as you said, lots of sleepiness. I've noticed this for years and years.

I was never affected when I was young. As I get older[49]I feel it no pain or anything like that I just get real sleepy and no energy.I also get more energized in the spring and fall.I hate summer the heat just drains me.I also think the cooler weather always gives me alot of energy.

The only season that bothers me is winter. I can tolerate the cold sunny days of winter, but when the sun does not shine, I get miserable. I Cannot tolerate below zero temps anymore, me old bones

I grew up in Illinois and had to move because I got SAD every winter. Warmer weather really helps keep me happy . I know SAD deals with daylight exposure but the warmer weather really helps me fight it.

I am usually miss sunshine, even in the worse weather. But this year my mom (a 2-3 day drive away) has been sick, my phone/computer service went out, and it has been a rougher than usual winter. So I've felt isolated and depressed, when normally I'm OK through it. My husand has tendencies to be depressed during winter. One thing you have to do is make a point of getting outside for a stroll in all but knock-you-off-your-feet, unsafe weather. People don't realize how important it is to get outside, even if it is just a walk around the block.

So true Claire. I am from California and I hate the weather here in the UK. I do love a cold rainy day but day after day of it here is too much for me. Just getting out in the sunshine for a few minutes makes my mood sooo much better!
