Aside from the fatigue I've been feeling, I also have other symptoms of SAD, including lethargy, mild social withdrawal, and food and carb cravings but no depression. Depression seems to be a major sign of SAD but I don't have that. Also, I'm not sure if I am feeling this way because I have marathon training burnout or just lack of motivation.
It's very interesting that they site "light" (too little of too much) to be a cause of SAD. I have to admit that I've been guilty this whole summer of getting too much sunlight. Perhaps this is why I am feeling this way. For the most part, I am having a hard time getting out of bed in the morning to go workout and when I do get to the gym, I feel no energy to do anything more than light walking and stretching. I would be concerned about this but I always seem to feel this way when the seasons change. I don't normally have this problem but I've been experiencing this fatigue every single time Autumn rolls around. I am hoping this will go away soon so I can get back to my regular level of activity and also so I won't have to go see the doctor.
So I've been knitting and crocheting again because sometimes that is all the energy I feel I have to do. So until I start feeling better again, which I hope is soon, I've made a couple of items.
|Here I am crocheting a prototype for a market bag that I made for Sister K. Forgot to take a photo of the brown finished bag I ended up giving to her.|
|These are little booties I made for Sister S.|
|Here are a pile of granny squares that will eventually be finished off into a throw. Should have something to show by next week.|
