It is just a fact that I decline from November to mid-February; and from mid-February on then it just becomes easier for me to get up on time in the morning, work out daily, not spend my days off in bed; I can tackle small cleaning-up projects, much happier disposition, etc.
Going into November last year, I had HOPED things would be differerent as I had started WellbutrinXL earlier in the year, and had high hopes of it combating the SAD, along with use of my 'happy light'. But sad (haha) to say, things were almost the same. I didn't gain *quite* as much weight, 'just' 11 pounds.
Anyway, all I want to focus on now is that it is light out at 6:00 am, I am up and having my first cup of coffee by 6:20, I get my workout done by 9:00 am, and I am ready to tackle spring cleanup inside and out (I am very lucky to have 2 weeks off right now)
I look at my bed and think of how, without sounding like I'm exaggerating, it would "call" to me in the winter days, and I would just climb under the covers during the daytime, from 10:00 am til mid afternoon. Now it's abhorrent to me to even think of that. How weird is it how our perspective changes!!
If Spring/Summer are YOUR times to live, also, then I hope you are enjoying it as much as I am
