Do you get the Winter Time Blues?

Thursday, September 10, 2020

I feel like I am the only one who gets depressed when the Winter weather arrivea... I have had 7 major back surgeries in 14 years and in that time have never gone a day without pain. Mostly, Left Sciatic Joint and Nerve pain due to compression on that nerve and arthritis in the joint. Sometimes I get so cold, I feel like all the metal hardware holding my spine together freezea??!! I just feel do alone and that no one understands what chronic pain can do to a person.. I ask, if you know of someone who is experiencing chronic pain to not judge them -Love them. Thank you “Give all your worries and cares to God, for He cares about you.” 1 Peter 5:7

    Usually sunny here, but winter is gloomy with shorter days and colder weather. I've been thinking of getting sun lamps. Wow, 14 years of chronic pain. Wishing you better days ahead.

    I have SAD and it gets really bad in October for some reason. I have a light that helps.
    I can't imagine having chronic pain. My husband has a lot of the same back problems you do and I see his frustration on a daily basis. I'll keep you in my prayers and STAY STRONG!

    Seasonal depression is absolutely a thing people get! There's something about the cold and dark that just kind of sucks...

    I understand totally. Cold weather brings increased pain, as if daily chronic pain isn't bad enough. I stay cold. I cant get warm enough. Movement is harder because of my joints not wanting to move. Inside they freeze up. I hear ya, if you need me
