I noticed something weird: my moods are deeply affected by the weather, but not the usual way. In the last few days my anxiety has been out of control, nearly impossible to live with, and the sun was shining. Today, however, I'm feeling awesome, even if I was caught in the middle of a storm and came home dripping wet.
I don't really understand how it works, to be honest. I have always preferred winter to any other season and I suffer from allergies that make spring a real pain, but I don't think those are the real reasons behind this thing.
Maybe it's the fact that, around three years ago, May/June have been the worst months ever, and now that I am trying to work on that, I'm getting triggered by, well, the fact that now it is May? IDK, my mind isn't very clear at the moment...

Anyone had a similar experience?

If you have allergies and depression, then pollen can cause anxiety spikes, apparently. So that could be a factor. And rainstorms might dampen down the pollen in the air, I guess.

I've been wondering about whether taking natural anti-allergens like quercetin and turmeric might make a difference, if pollen is a factor in temporary spikes, but I haven't tested this out properly yet.

That is very very interesting. I wonder if that connects to the sinus headaches I get that seem to mimic migraines by bringing nausea along with them... Pollen = sinus headache and separately = nausea? Hmm.

i'm sensitive to barometric pressure shifts. for example if a band of rain is coming through i'll get progressively stronger headaches until the rain actually meets the area i'm in. i tend to have a lot of sinus problems anyway, but if i've been having a headache slowly building for three days i know that it can make my anxiety worse/ easier to trigger.
