"Spring" it on

February 5, 2011 - Kathleen Palumbo
Don’t know about you but I think I have the little talked about disorder recently discovered to be affecting more than half of the residents of Northeastern Ohio and its bordering areas.

A sister syndrome to the more commonly known Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD, in which generally happy people suffer from the mood disorder of “winter blues,” with OMG–TSIGA, or “Oh My God, The Sky Is Gray Again,” a mere morning glimpse out of a window leads to daylong signs of gloom, followed by the intense urge to nap.

I’m here to tell you, you’re not alone. Chances are, many of your family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers are suffering in silence as well, and while there is no FDA approved medical treatment impending, don’t despair – there are simple things you can do to alleviate symptoms of OMG–TSIGA.

Boycott watching all weather related media. That’s right, until the weather begins to break, refuse to listen to the repeated use of “cloudy skies,” “temperatures dropping,” and otherwise OMG-TSIGA inducing language.

Break out the summer tunes. Never mind that the snow is still falling, everyday can be a Beach Boys/Buffett/Marley kinda day, if only in your mind.

Fake the beach. Scent your home with a little coconut.

If you practice yoga, stand in warrior pose and stare down winter.

And when all else fails, call a fellow sufferer, shout out OH MY GOD, THE SKY IS GRAY AGAIN in unison, and give in…go take a nap.
