Climate Control

The idea that the weather and people’s moods are connected is quite old. Do you agree? If yes, how does the weather affect your mood?

i definitely agree with this. it’s not just a shift in moods for me though. being chronically ill the dark, dreary weather also brings along a bit more joint pain than usual and my spoons are depleted faster. it makes day-to-day tasks difficult. sometimes it gets to the point where i’m like “nope, you’re not getting me out of bed for nothing today. please go fuck off somewhere.”

i do have bouts of second wind though, which is helpful. last week i did a speed-cleaning [it had rained Tuesday and Wednesday so that’s a spoon suck.]  i had also ran some errands outside the house on Wednesday, so it cut into my spoon stash and i was definitely feeling the slowdown.
