I don't want to do anything. I've got the blahs. According to Discovery Health, here's my problem:
For some people, lack of sunlight, usually during late fall and winter months, can bring on depression. Many people tend to feel a little down on cloudy days. People with seasonal affective disorder (SAD) experience depression during periods of gray weather. Experts believe that sunlight causes changes in a tiny structure in the brain called the hypothalamus. For some people, these changes upset the brain chemistry and cause depression.
And by George, I think they've hit the nail on the head. I must have sunshine. I. Must. Have. Sunshine. I know there's nothing you can do about the weather, so why gripe about it? Well, why not gripe about it? These awful, gray, gloomy skies and periods of soaking rain are making me feel bad and I'm ticked off about it. Thanks to Discovery Health, at least now I can justify my blues. I feel redeemed. Though I still feel lousy, at least my lousy mood is now justified.
Today I'm going to wear my T-shirt with this on it:
Yep, that's me. Little Miss Sunshine.
