Does anyone get more mental issues during the cold weather? Like anxiety for example?
Yes! I am dealing with VERY heightened anxiety right now
location is getting colder, well, its getting less daily sunlight to. Lack of sun can contribute to anxiety. Supplementing Vitamin D for lack of sun does nothing for me but satisfy lab levels.
Many, natural supps in anxiety posts here that will help.
5 HTP and holy basil were my favorite, now with lyme in remission, I dont need as much but still like lower amounts during the low light of fall and winter.
Initial lyme symptoms in late 80's, again with bullseye early 90's. Started ABX 2014, ended in Jan 2016. Flares ended after. Lyme "B gone" as far as I can tell (Cured?). Now: Healing the aftermath-Rebuilding / fine tuning / fixing muscles and still improving nutrition and immune via better gut health. 20 years of Hashimoto adds to this journey.
