I have been dealing with one hell of a headache for over 3 weeks now. Feels like a compression headache, and it is getting really old. My head constantly hurts, from a mild ache to screaming migraine. No wonder I’m feeling meh lately.

But the meh feels deeper than just meh, if that makes sense. Which makes me wonder: is it just stress, or is my Reverse SAD kicking in early? I’m supposed to avoid stress due to my illnesses, but as you can see, that doesn’t always happen. Have I crossed an invisible boundary?

I sure hope it’s not my Reverse SAD kicking in early. Too much needs to get done before that depressive cycle hits, but part of me fears that it is already too late. It’s still in the gray zone though, where it could be many different things – but I already just want to hide into the Sims 4. It is taking quite a bit for me to continue to push through and get things finished, and that may only get worse.

Generally, my Reverse SAD kicks in around the 4th of July, leaving me quite the mess until September/October – just in time for regular SAD to kick in. Now I’m in this twilight zone, and it feels like Reverse SAD, but it’s also not clear – could be stress, allergies, any number of things that have me down. Or just the shitty weather blues.

Do you suffer from Reverse SAD? How do you handle it?


I’m still looking for some help on my GoFundMe, if you can help me out! I ended up about $500 short on my bills this month, due to some unexpected expenses. This definitely hasn’t been my spring so far! Everything helps at this point, so even if you can only donate $5, it helps!


Just a reminder about the Herbs and Essential Oils Super Bundle 2019! If you get your bundle before midnight tonight, you will also receive a 50 serving bag of Morning Motivator blend from the Maca Team absolutely free! That’s a $17.48 value. The Morning Motivator blend increases your energy, without straining your adrenals OR energy crashes. So get on that, would you?
