How does the weather affect your symptoms?

Whether you’re heading into winter in the Northern Hemisphere or summer in the Southern, the seasons are changing. With the changing seasons comes changing weather. And with the changing weather can come a change in symptoms.

For me, the weather — especially when it fluctuates quickly or when the seasons change — has a big impact on my chronic migraine, joint pain, and bipolar disorder.

Does the weather influence your symptoms? What impact do you think this current change in seasons will have on your mental and physical health?

Any Information About Vraylar?

I've been on the antidepressant Vibryd for at least 3-4 years, no medications would work for my depression. Then my psychiatrist added Abilify to the Vibryd and it just changed how I was doing, It definitely wasn't a cure, but for the first time medication was helpful for me. I have been doing more manageable since she added it. It helped me so I could deal with my depression with coping skills and it wasn't so extreme, but the past 3-4 months my depression became severe again, and my psychiatrist wants to change me to Vraylar and stop the Abilify. I was wondering if anyone had any experiences with this medication. Thank you for any information you might have from your experiences, I really appreciate it. #MightyTogether #MajorDepressiveDisorder #SeasonalAffectiveDisorder #GeneralizedAnxietyDisorder #CPTSD #PTSD #Suicide

I decided not to move. #MajorDepressiveDisorder #GeneralizedAnxietyDisorde #PTSD

I decided to stay in Wisconsin but not Milwaukee. I’m moving to west bend Wisconsin. It a safe city according to my friend who lives there and affordable rent. He moved there to get away from Milwaukee crime. I also read Wisconsin ranks number 2 with the best mental health system. Why move ? Sure my #SeasonalAffectiveDisorder will still be there but I can always exercise at the fitness center or stores during those months. Plus fall is my favorite time of year. My cousin also lives there. I have tons of coping skills that I’m using now . My main concern is my safety. My other concern is the best mental health care system. Florida ranks very low when it comes to mental health I should know I lived there for 4 years. Wisconsin is my hometown

I’m so fatigued #MajorDepressiveDisorder #PTSD #GeneralizedAnxietyDisorde #SeasonalAffectiveDisorder

I woke up at 8:30am like normally I can’t shake this fatigue. I haven’t been officially diagnosed with #SeasonalAffectiveDisorder but since I have #MajorDepressiveDisorder I’m pretty sure I have it. I have done everything to distract myself and but I ended up dosing off. I’m so fatigued that I’m to tired to even talk why it takes effort to open up to say something. I journaled today, play my sims 4 now I’m watching 13 reasons why on Netflix. I can’t wait to go to bed. I feel lethargic
