Reverse Seasonal Affective disorder
I'm pretty sure I have reverse SAD. I had problems with depression since childhood but for the most part my depression has been absent since about age 25, (I'm 31 now) except for when it's hot. I actually get practically euphoric in the winter time, especially when it rains, but whenever its over 80 degrees or so, I get very fatigued and tired and depressed. Air conditioning sometimes helps, but I usually need to be completely isolated from the outdoors and have very chilly air in order to feel normal. Right now it's about 85 degrees outside, pretty cool in the house I'm staying at but I still have no energy and I'm dreading going outside. I feel slightly nautious in the heat too, and have trouble concentrating. Anyone else have this problem? and more importantly does anyone have any sucess in dealing with this? I've got a long hot summer to look forward to in this hell hole known as southern California, and I'd like to not be too miserable this year. I'd appreciate any advise!
