It’s Raining, It’s Pouring , My Depression is Soaring

What is up with the weather and it’s direct impact on my mood? No really? I mean I know I am prone to depression and that I live everyday with an anxiety disorder but seriously. It’s been gorgeous for over a week straight now and today is the first, much needed, day of rain and yet…last night in it’s wake I had a brutal migraine and today I am feeling overly anxious and depressed. I worry about money; who doesn’t?  I worry about my husband and daughter; I assume that normal right? I stress about work…and knowing what I want to do with my life (Ironic since I am a Career Counsellor by profession).  Today is just a blah day. I have been back and forth on the med’s I need em or don’t I? I stopped taking them (them being Wellbutrin) about 8 months ago because I felt I didn’t truly need them and could manage this with rational self talk and meditation…but somedays I wonder.  It’s day like this when I have to remind my broken brain how very blessed I am. I have good health, a wonderful family, our own home, a good career and lots of people who love me for me….So knock it off brain…knock it off.

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” — Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. Well… Vitamin D is needed for Serotonin production, and a lack of Serotonin will aggravate depression. But it isn’t really a short-lived molecule so a single day of rain shouldn’t really influence Serotonin levels significantly.
    Perhaps the winding-down and the opportunity to sit and think has caused your thoughts to go into overdrive, giving rise to your worries.
    It’s okay to feel like this – no matter how blessed you are.
    Best wishes to you.
