Does anyone else get a little blue in February?

Something about February always seems to bring me down. I think it's the long winter, the cumulative effects of shortened sunlight, and that post holiday let down all combine to give me a touch of the blues (or the mean pinks as Audrey Hepburn would say.) Anyone else? (voting is private).

It's just another month to me, like all the rest. There is a significant date in my past that happens to be in February, but that was 15 years ago and I can't very well dwell on it now that I'm hitting 30.

(There are more minutes of sunlight on days in February than there are in December. )

The winter itself is pretty rough but now that you mention it, I have been feeling extra cranky and sad this past little while.

February is month in which one of my best friends died, but other than the one day where I get a little sad and then very happy thinking of him, February is just another month.

There definitely are and I am VERY glad for that, it just seems that by this point every year Winter has worn out it's welcome but spring is still so long in coming. It always passes, I just hate he way it creeps in this time each year.

I have definite issues with depression in the winter. It sucks, although this year hasn't been too bad so far.

Have you ever spoken with someone about Seasonal Affective Disorder?

It's not that winter doesn't affect me, it does. I sleep like crap. I keep the heat down and snuggle up with blankets. Then I get hot. Until I hit the cold spots on the bed. Then I'm shivering. Then I'm hot. So I basically toss and turn all night long. I don't want to do as much or go anywhere when it's cold outside. I think a lot of people are like that though.

Not really, no. I wish spring would get here already, but I'm not bummed out about it.

I get really depressed in the winter every year. I'm only a little down until Christmas. After that, I'm miserable. When spring comes, I perk back up. Until then, it really, really sucks. I don't want to go anywhere or do anything. I just want to sleep all day. I hate the gloom, I hate how little daylight there is, I HATE the cold.

Its not February itself, its when its been cloudy day after day that my spirits lower. I first realized this years ago during a cloudy week when I saw a news clip about something in LA and it was sunny there. I was surprised at how my spirits lifted just by seeing sunshine on TV.

Where I live, November and December are the depressing months. January isn't too bad, but February sees clearing skies, less rain, and temperatures in the high 40s-low 50s, the first blooming flowers, and the first leaves. I love February.

I understand that. Any day where I can see sunlight for even five minutes makes me feel better than only a totally overcast day.

February gets me down. I think its because my deceased grandmothers birthday is in February (Valentines day, I'm not kidding). Then there's this February, and the weather just hasn't been great.

I haven't talked to anyone about it, but I wouldn't hesitate to self diagnose myself with a mild case of SAD each February. I though moving to the Southeast would help but it's still here. At least February is a short month!

I voted yes, because by then I'm ready for spring. but spring doesn't come where I live till a few months later :/
Also I think sunshine for valentines day should be mandatory!

If it's a particularly sunny and mild Feb then I am usually fine but grey, snowy days leech my energy and seem to turn my brain to mush.

SAD runs rampant. I myself want to go light the city on fire just to warm it up, but that's got little to do with my mood, unless you count my feeling that this weather is positively unreasonable.

I think that kind of depression is from a lack of sunlight. It's called Seasonal Affective Disorder or SAD. There are special lights you can get for light therapy to help when it is consistently cloudy and bleak outside.

I've had a few years worth of bad luck in February, so I'm not a fan, and the month gets me down easily.

Psychologically its called S.A.D, Seasonal affective disorder. Its not specifically February that gets me down its mostly just winter. AKA the full season.

Yea - I suffer from a moderate case of SAD. I've got full spectrum lighting in my office - it tries to mimic sunlight. I think it helps - but it could be the placebo affect?!

I have gotten significantly less dreary about February since I took up snowboarding.

At the risk of triggering, I have to quote Lewis Black on this.

"Normally, in February, in Boston and in most of the country, the weather is gray, rainy, gray, sleet, gray, rain, gray, sleet, snow, gray; every day it just gets grayer and grayer and grayer! You wake up one day, and you go, 'I'm not comin' into work today!' Your boss goes, 'Why not? You sick?' 'No! It's too gray!'"
"Then you wake up and it's the grayest day you've ever seen! And the next day, it's even grayer! And that's usually Valentine's Day, and that's the day you look at your wrists and go, 'Hey, maybe I should slit 'em to see color!"

Also some people are blue in February because they get their credit card bills from xmas spending and don't realize how much they spent till they see the bill

I mostly find that Feb for me is just like any other month. The winter months in general make me kinda mopey no matter the month. But overall I bounce emotionally around no matter what month it is summer or winter.

Fall is what gets me. February I find myself looking towards the spring. But fall everything is just withering up and locking itself away for winter.

I'm not a huge fan of February but my birthday is in February so there is a silver lining to the February cloud.

Yeah...I think lack of sun creates Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). Not a good feeling.
