The Weather


#1
Does any one find the cold weather affects their mood as well as the pd?

I had a good day yesterday only to wake up to a covering of snow and whey hey it stopped me in my tracks. Another wasted day feeling slow and stiff i couldn`t be bothered to do anything and felt really odd.

I suppose its something i`ll have to get used to!

I hope tomorrow is milder otherwise Xmas is postponed!!

Big C :disappointed:

Hello BigC I believe the weather affects many folk, not just those with PD.

I don't know what age you are but I do know the colder weather can dampen our spirits as we get older.

Autumn and winter weather can chill us to the bone, while spring and summer warms our souls but then if it is too hot we complain. No happy medium.

I hope today is better for you.

Beest wishes

The extremes of weather cirtainly affects my husband . The heat strips him of the little energy he has and when its colder he becomes stiffer and shivers , taking quite a while to recover from .. Definately affects mood as well the brighter the day the better he is .

I often tend to give up and stay in on a cold day, although I had to go out today. I find when indoors and outdoors looks so cold that having a warm hot water bottle to cuddle is mood lifting and I can face the jobs that need doing. It's not that the house is cold, but a centre of heat is encouraging.
