Hey, I'm a bit the opposite, I just love the rain..(but I do get a little anxious if a thunderstorm comes out of the blue). This could be because I feel when the sun is shining I feel like I SHOULD be happy and outside, but it actually depresses me. Where I live rain is rare, and sun is almost always shining so maybe that's it?? But that's just me, I'm sure others will post with something similar.
I'm glad the effexor is working for you, but if you feel the dose could go up than by all means tell your doc. It's so important to get that dose right. Stay well.
It does seem like we are getting some bad storms as it is that time of year, tornadoe season. We had a bad storm last night and a tornadoe touch down north of us, 1 child died. I am always in tune to the weather channel, but I guess I don't feel anxiety as much as being aware of what is going on and planning on what we would do if the weather turned ugly in our area.
I love a nice rain at night and the wind blowing is soothing to me. I don't like weeks of dreary weather such as we had in March and April this year.
Good thread ColtsFan. Thanks for starting it.
I hate the power outtages that are caused by the storms. Sitting in the lower level with no lights and no television weather radar makes me pace. I try to just lay on the couch and rest but it is so freaky feeling out of touch with the reat of the country.
We always plan for a water supply etc as we are in the country and our water is on a well with an electric pump so we have to have bottled water as well a gallons of water on hand for flushing toilets.
Emergency Preparedness for bad weather when you live in the northern states is a must.
Hope some of this helps you see your not alone my friend.
Take care Kitt
