Disability Bitch vs winter
26th September 2007
It has to be said that I am very much in sympathy with the SAD contingent, because I HATE WINTER, and no mistaking. In fact, at one point my specialists were exploring the possibility that I might have SAD, until they realised that I hate summer, spring and autumn too.
So if my mood is low in winter, that would be why. I have tried to make it better for myself. I had those sunlight lamps fitted all around my house and even attached one to my head, and had my no-legged friend travel in front of me shining a torch into my face. It didn't lift my mood; in fact, I just fell over more often because the lights made it difficult to see where I was going.
Doctors have recommended that I stay in bed this winter. Last time I tried staying in bed for more than a few hours, it ended in disaster, so I'm not quite sure what to do. My no-legged friend has offered to screw a daylight lamp into my skull, but I suspect I'll remain chronically miserable.
