It's hard to describe, I always look forward to summer when I think I can get better, but it is always the most terrible time of the whole year. Seeing other people live, not being able to take part, watching my life fade away.

I’m self conscious about my weight, my parents constantly shout at me telling me I’m getting to thin and they’re forcing me to go to a doctor. This just makes my anxiety worse when outside, in Winter I can wear a jacket and hide everything but my parents are constantly forcing me to go out and in this weather I can only wear a top, I can’t stand summer.

Summer has always been the worst time of the year for me. Everything just feels so hot and suffocating. I feel much better when it's cold and I'm able to cuddle up in my favorite hoodie. Also my birthday is in summer so that probably has to do with why I hate it.

(2017 was pretty unremarkable but 2018 is going to end up in this "hit list" as well)

Yeah, summer used to be a really exciting time. I mountain biked at a pretty high level for years and the spring/summer/fall time was filled with fun. Mostly lonely fun. But I was out and doing something. But even during those years, there were periods when I hated summer. Seeing people out and having fun. It hurt me to know I didn't function like them and that the social connectedness I saw wasn't ever going to be mine.

Ab-so-lutely. Couldn’t have put it better. It’s supposed to be the most fun time of the year when everybody is living it up and you’re stuck inside being depressed. I know exactly how you feel. God, I hate this.

I think I understand that lonely fun ... do a lot of long distance trail running (which if fun to me) but I end up seeing a lot of families/ couples/happy friends out having adventures together.... I probably look too long trying to figure out what it is ... summer : (

It's amazing how my favorite season in childhood became something i hate as a late teen. The heat makes me sleepy, since I grew in a shitty small town there's nothing to do here, and seeing all the happy people going on adventures makes me jealous.
I'd choose eternal winter over these hellish summer months any day.

I tried to kill myself two years ago around this same time, now want to do it again.
The summer hits hard for some reason. I don’t even mind the heat, I work out in it all the time, but summer just...breaks my mood, well more than normal anyway!

Suicide rates peak in the summer months I believe...

Yeah, the world 'comes alive' and you just feel dead. The vile sunlight like life itself intruding into your bedroom every fucking morning when you just want to never wake up or get up again.

Christmas time and the lead up is pretty fucking revolting aswell though, especially if you work in retail.

The only thing I hate about it is my older sibling coming back from college. Winter is my least favorite time.

I used to love summer, but that was when life for me was better. Now, as an impoverished older person, enduring a long hot and humid summer in a tiny apartment without a/c, it is living hell. As spring approaches, the thought of suffering through another summer is edging me closer towards the terminal bus.

Summer is the worst for me too. Everything becomes lively and life gets faster and overwhelming. The heat & excessive sunshine only makes it worse

I used to really like summer, but last year I experienced the worst episode of depression that I’d ever experienced and it lasted the whole summer and never really went away. This summer hasn’t been as bad but I can never look at it the same way again. And yet for some reason I still miss summer when it’s gone. I don’t even know what triggered that episode of depression, I was fine that winter and then randomly got slammed one day in May. It didn’t used to be this bad.

I live in Florida, so it's summer ten months of the year.

So yeah, fuck summer.

I thought summer was going to be better, but I just ended up between too depressed to get out of bed and working 12 hour days constantly. I thought school would be better because I would actually have friends but my friend group fell apart and every class I am reminded that everyone else is happy and I am not nor will ever be.
