Do you find it affects you? Or similar?Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that's related to changes in seasons — SAD begins and ends at about the same times every year. If you're like most people with SAD, your symptoms start in the fall and continue into the winter months, sapping your energy and making you feel moody.

Humidity and heat always get me. I feel terrible and whenever the temp swings or the seasons change I'm almost incapacitated for 1-2 weeks. I feel like I got shoved off a bridge and hit by a full speed train and my body just got ragdolled. It's horrible and these strange winter's we've been having in the Midwest where it swings 20-30 degrees in one day every week is the worst. I notice I function alot better in a drier environment.
Anyone have more trouble with barometric changes? If so, how does it affect you?
The heat and normal humidity (I live in NC) are my best friends, but if a cold front comes in, I'm toast. And get cold so easily, making my skin feel prickly. I have arthritis and chronic costochondritis, as well, so I have daily pain from them. However, the nerve pain from fibro just magnifies that pain x10. I cannot take any nerve pain meds or NSAIDs and medical marijuana isn't legal here. I just grit my teeth and bear through it.
