Does wheather make you happy or sad depending on what it is like outside?

I woke up this morning full of energy and ready to start the week. I felt great and everything. Now it is really gloomy and rainy outside and I suddenly feel tired and gloomy myself. I am trying not to look out the window and get myself to wake up but it isn't working. Does this happen to you?

Yes I am so like you. My boyfriend thinks I'm nuts. If it is sunny and warm that reflects on my mood hence I am sunny and warm. Cold, gloomy, or rainy I feel tired and crabby. And that is what it is supposed to be today. Ick.

When bad weather makes someone feel sad all the time, it's called Seasonable Affective Disorder. We all feel somewhat gloomy if the weather's been bad for a long time, but some people, including me, feel extremely rotten when this happens, sometimes to the point of needing medication.

Yep! That definitely happens to me. When it's rainy and dark, I usually feel sleepy.. and being a person who doesn't nap, it means I don't accomplish much. When the weather is bright and sunny (and eventually warm!!), I'm energized and want to get things done.

Rainy day  - does change my mood quite a bit.
Yes it sure does and no matter what I do, it stays with me the whole time. Today it's raining just like yesterday and the day before and it's suppose to carry on for the next few days. UGH. Yesterday I slept on the love seat because I was so sleepy from all the gloomyness and rain. I'm going to try to do some mylotting today... we'll see how long I last.
