The constant rain and dreary skies make me feel very sad and depressed.
I moved to Seattle 3 months ago to be with my boyfriend.
He is a software designer that works for Microsoft. He couldn’t leave his job with Microsoft and find a new job making the same amount of money, so I agreed to move to Seattle from the Midwest. Things are a lot different in Seattle than I expected. There are some good things and some bad things. I definitely like the fact that recreational and medical marijuana are legal in Seattle, Washington. I spent half as much money on medical marijuana as I did before I moved. Unfortunately, that is the only thing that helps with my mental health. I hate the rain and the clouds. It rains almost every single day in Seattle and it’s making me feel very crazy. Last week I couldn’t find a reason to get out of bed. Even when the dog was jumping on me to go outside for a walk, I still lay there in bed feeling like I could not move my arms or legs. I smoked a little bit of marijuana and that helps to brighten my mood for a short time. Unfortunately, I don’t think all the marijuana and the world is going to change the situation. I’m just not happy here in Seattle. I don’t know what the answer is to the problem, but I don’t think maybe living in Seattle is going to work for much longer. I hate to disappoint my boyfriend, but I really can’t handle the weather.
