Feeling Grumpy


Sorry I haven’t posted in a while or been reading your blogs much, I’ve been tired from my sinuses I think. Today I feel grumpy and generally it’s my sinuses that do that to me. PMS is already past so it’s not that. I’ve got things to do but don’t seem to have the energy. Maybe it’s S.A.D. coming on me now that it gets dark here shortly after 5 pm. My mood has not been low but I have noticed some irritability in myself since turning the clocks back over a week ago. I really dislike this time of year. Despite my best intentions for learning to enjoy winter it’s difficult when it causes one to suffer in mood. Guess I’ll have to try my light therapy.

Anyone else noticing S.A.D. symptoms coming on lately too?

  1. Huh, I got two blog posts with the word “grumpy” in the title today, so it must be going around! Light therapy is probably a good idea, or a brisk walk outside. Hope you feel better soon! πŸ™‚

  2. Earlier this year than most. Sorry your grumpy, sending huge smiles πŸ˜€ and a ((hug)) or two.

    • Aw, thanks Benjamin!

      My S.A.D. usually starts in November so it isn’t early for me 😦 It went from getting dark around 6:30 to 5 pm shortly after turning our clocks back an hour here. I am quite sensitive to light and dark like that 😦

      • 😦 bummer, do you use a “sun” light lamp?

      • I do have a S.A.D. light but I don’t really know how I am supposed to use it to benefit. Perhaps there is something on the internet. I never really bothered to look just used the lamp and wondered if I was using it properly πŸ˜›

      • Something I meant to say yesterday and simply didn’t. Should you ever need a friendly smile or virtual hand to hold in your darkness I’m always here for your.

      • Thanks, Benjamin! That means a lot to me especially since you’re busy and have been struggling some lately. I am feeling better today so hopefully I will not be low in mood for a bit. Winter is my least favourite season and it isn’t even winter here but the lack of light is horrible. I could never live in the North! lol

        How are you doing yourself?

        Virtual Hugs πŸ˜€

      • I’m well today, took a day off from the farm, did some painting for myself and napped.

  3. It’s just a grumpy time of year, I think. I know that I’ve been way more irritable with my boyfriend and I’m running out of excuses on which to blame it. I hope you start feeling better and rejoin us soon πŸ™‚
