Does anyone else just feel really good in spring/summer?


Recommended Posts

I don't mean manic. I mean like the weight has lifted off your shoulders, the depression has disappeared -- you feel light and happy, you have more energy and aren't sleeping as much, etc. Just really great. Happy and light and productive and.... so happy!

 

It's such a great feeling. I feel NORMAL. Is this how normal people feel? I don't know.

I love winter, it feels cozy at first, but towards the end it starts to get my mood down a bit. I welcome spring and it seems to wake up my spirit after the constantly cloudy skies, the mud and muck, and the nonstop rain that is the Pacific Northwest in February. I really do feel a positive mood shift when the flowers come out and the weather is that perfect level of warm. 

I hate summer though. I am immediately over sun when the first heat wave hits.

It sounds to me like you're affected somewhat by the seasons - I've gotten the sense from various psychiatrists that that's not at all uncommon for people to be affected by the seasons like that. There's also a chance that it's a sub-syndromal hypomania.

Depending on exactly how happy you feel, I think it probably is how a lot of people feel who don't have Bipolar Disorder.

Same. I had to look it up when I realized that my depressive episodes have overwhelmingly been in the summer; definitely a person with reverse SAD. I know that part of it is that it's when I'm out-of-my-mind stressed with work. Wedding season + pastry chef = longgg hours, hard work, little sleep. Is there a definable reason for you, gearhead?

I feel zippy in the spring or summer. It’s a pattern for me. I only realized this this year!

I feel a bit zippy too!! Not manic or anything, but definitely have a lot more energy and just... zippy. It's a great feeling.

Great feelings always make me nervous. Keep an eye on that, my friend.

Zippy would concern me personally.  Seems hypomanic for me.  My big question is sleep.

Are you sleeping?  Sleep is so important for bipolar people.

This is a comment on a dead thread! :) 

I'm down during late spring and all of the summer.

The fall is wonderful for me. And I love snow so i don't have any significant cycles during winter.
