Seasonal Affective Disorder hits just about everyone in the north. For the past few weeks, there’s been nothing but grey sky, white/grey snow, and the monochromatic landscape has finally gotten to me.
Nothing huge or serious, but there are some signs that tell me, I really need the winter solstice to come, then go, so daylight will come back:
1) I’m pigging out on chocolate. It’s like I can’t get enough happy hormones.
2) I actually slammed back 3 cokes. Usually, I’m a 1/2 a can-a-day kind of girl. I can only chalk it up to a hibernation thing. I think my body wants sugar and fat, so it can go sleep for the next three months.
3) Craving daylight. I can’t be anywhere but the living and family rooms, because they get the most daylight.
There’s probably more signs¦loss of energy, etc., but those are the big ones”especially the pop. I’m so not a big drinker¦
