The weather where I am at seems to take an absolutely dramatic toll on my mood and what is upsetting is I don't know what about cloudy/rainy/foggy days makes me so upset but it does. I have been totally fine on sunny days and feel very happy and optimistic about my life and goals yet when even one day of overcast or dreary weather comes I feel just this total 180-degree turn in my mood and levels of motivation.

What about the lack of sunlight or sun makes it so difficult for some people to operate and function normally, if anyone knows? I just don't like being a "fair-weather" person and only being able to feel my best on sunnier days yet I know life is life and the weather is basically not under our control very much (if at all).

I do not see much hope for this issue as I know it appears to be common and a very widespread issue, yet I would do anything I can to help mitigate the depression I experience from poorer weather even if it only slightly mitigates this!

Welcome to e health forum.

It is difficult to assess psychiatric issues just based on the description and history provided here.

Your concerns and issues need to be properly addressed by a one to one personal interview.

Hence consult with a psychiatrist and seek a proper opinion.

I hope this helps.
