My nemesis, the fall, is coming!

I do not know why, it does not matter if i take the maximum of Vitamine-D during the dark time of the year. I am so much less of a person. During the summer im almost oblivious to HPPD, but when the darkness comes its there, still in the bakground due to my meds.

Mind that i live in Stockholm so we only got like three months of proper sun.

I dont know how you other guys feels about this, a lot of you are living in the UK and NE US. So there should be a similar seasoning, but not that extreme as here.

If you have these issues, how do you co-op? Jay seems to made a good descision to move south. I have been thinking about just that but need an income. The other option is ro sell everything and move to that exotic, cheap place though it wont hold up in the long run.

In the long term, try and learn or develop a skill that allow you to work online, from home. It's the only way i have managed to live in Portugal, the economy here is terrible.

 

In the short term, maybe work hard in the summers, save money and then fly south for the winter and relax... like a hppd bird

 

Rentals are ridiculously cheap in the winter, and cost of living is nothing (I can easily live off €200 a month... inc a few meals out and nights in a bar).

Perhaps its the best way, to learn something that isnt bound to a place. I was thinking like south India but didn't know it was that cheap in south of europe, regardless of the economy (it will probably hit us up here as well some time soon). Work a lot with music productions but do not know really how to apply it to income.

200€ is nothing, i remember staying at a place with hotel standard in Lagos/Algarve for 10€/night and the whole trip was very, very cheap. Ridicoulous, staying at star quality hotel standard to a lower price then my appartement.

Yea, it must be crazy coming from Skandanavia to see such prices.

 

I couldn't believe my eyes when we went to Norway this summer. Alcohol especially, probably not a bad thing for a HPPD sufferer.

 

The Algarve is a little different!

Yeah, i remember those prices on beer. That was when i still could drink. A beer is 5-6€ here. In norway its even worse, people cross the border from Norway to Sweden to bulk up on alcohol and even things like dairy products, getting caught and fined at the border.

Yes the supermarket haha! But where I'm referring to the supermarket is more often a much nicer place to have a beer and socialize than the bars (You can get cold beer in the supermarket and do your shopping with a beer; it's pretty normal. You pay for your empty bottles when you check out.).

Can't beat $0.10 for a beer though haha!

EDIT: sorry to derail on beer. How much IU's of Vitamin D do you take and which form?

Just throwing this out there as a little speculation... perhaps nothing to do with Vitamin D deficiency but something more along the lines of less light entering the eye -> less stimulation of the visual apparatus -> (worse visuals) feel shitter. I think generally most people find the visuals worse in the dark. Like you, I don't really notice them out in the sun. The only thing that puzzles me about the above suggestion is Dr A's finding that wearing sunglasses mitigate symptoms for some, and also that I (and I think many of us) are quite photophobic. But perhaps those ideas are compatible...  :blink: 

Anyway, more to the point.. I've been drinking shit loads of cheap beer in Crete in the sun. Just saying...  :P 

But actually more excited to get home, do more reading and try new meds. How sad am I/are we?

I do not believe its the Vitamine D either. I take the maximum dose that the body can absorb from the sun, 10.000 IE of D3.

Maybe something with the light or the endorfin release from the warmth? Just a couple of ours in the archpilago give me tremendeous boost on every level.

It's called seasonal affective disorder.  I have it too.    It has to do with light entering the retina and triggering the brain to be happy.  The SAD lamps help.  I need to pick one up for this winter actually. Winters here can last 4 months. They are becoming unbearable for me.  Each one seems worse than the last :P

Something to look in to then. Literally

Just make sure to baby step into and do it in the morning when you wake up, increasing the exposure time gradually.  It will keep you awake at night if you do it too late in the day.  It will do a number on your vision if you have "ghosting" symptoms, but they will fade in a half hour or so... Lol.

 

I saw one on amazon for $27 or so that had pretty good reviews.  Might pick that one up. I have a lightbox but my dog broke it.  I need to see if I just need a new bulb or the fixture is trashed.  Sucks... probably a $200 light.  Insurance covered part of it... so that's a route you might want to check out too.

I guess that is Paris? Nice is ok most of the time?

Actually I was outside of Marseille. In a small town called St. Chamas. Ironically enough my HPPD was the worst its ever been in my life while I was in Paris. Though this did make the trip to Paris slightly more memorable, and a little trippy.
