10 Reasons Why I Hate Fall

In homage to my blog sisters who wrote posts about why Fall is their favorite time of the year, I write this post:

10 Reasons Why I Hate Fall:

1.  Every one loves the cooler temperatures of Autumn.  I hate them, because the 30 to 40 degree temperature changes daily really do a number on my body.  They make what ever flares of my diseases or illnesses worse, and also start things flaring that have been previously calm.  I have my usual Fall Costochondritis flare that started about a week and a half ago.

2.  Everyone gets sick during this time of year.  I have had a wicked on and off virus, both Grant and Tyler have colds.  It is also allergy season.  You got sick, I know it because I read your tweets.

3.  It is my birthday at the end of this month.

4.  Even if I was happy it was my birthday, it would be ruined because I am always sick…because it’s Fall.

5.  It is Halloween and if I don’t treat my child to fall festivals, pumpkin picking and trick or treating I’ve got Sick Mom Guilt big time.

Boo on Fall!

I’d like to make Fall disappear!

6.  Last year my husband thought it would be nice to put out all my Halloween/Fall decorations.  That was nice, but guess who had to put them away?

7.  I like apple cider doughnuts, pumpkin pie, candy corn and Halloween candy…but they just make me fat.

8.  I love the freedom of summer…shorts, tee shirts, flip flops.  You don’t have to look at what the temperature is, you know it’s going to be warm and you know what to wear.

9.  I never know what to wear this time of year, I never seem to have enough in-between summer and winter clothes either.

10. In the summer you don’t have to blow dry your hair.  I go out with my hair wet, looking like white trash, but I don’t even care.  I am too tired to blow-dry my hair.

And the bonus reason why I hate Fall…It is too close too Winter!

About mamasick

Emily Cullen is a pen-name. I suffer from chronic illnesses and diseases which include Bipolar Disorder, Asthma, Diabetes and Fibromyalgia. I had battled Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis but there is no longer evidence of me having these diseases and my Rheumatologist has declared them to be "burnt out" of my system. I am separated from my husband, “Grant”. Our son, “Tyler” was born in September of 2006 and suffers from tics and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and is delayed in fine and gross motor skills. In my blog I seek to let sick moms know that they are not the only ones going through this, and to educate people about what can happens when one becomes catastrophically ill. I also strive to break down stereotypes of what a “Welfare Mom” is like. Anything that I have gone through due to being sick, is written on the pages of Mama Sick.

  1. I am SO with you. Toddler’s first bday, I was so sick my mom had to do everything. Second bday, she was puking, guests had H1N! and canceled. This year, I’m sick.


    Although, overall I do like Fall, but this aspect is NOT fun.

    You just proved there ARE two sides to every story. Sorry that this time of year isn’t the best for you. Will continue to keep you in prayer. 🙂

  6. Lucy says:

    I am so with you when it comes to summer instead of the fall. I love that I can count on shorts and flip flops all summer long. I love that the weather is predictable..HOT! Not warm, cold, and disgusting. Living in Utah, you never know whether your getting snow or not in the fall. I hate that.Keep up the good spirits and I will keep you in my thoughts.

  7. Malsprower says:

    I can relate to this, I have fibro as well and the cold makes my joints stiff and painful. I also have psoriasis which itches in the winter a lot due to dryness. I have come to learn that a gluten free diet helps with my fibro and psoriasis symptoms. The paleo diet (lactose/gluten/junkfood free) is what I am trying right now and my psoriasis disappears and fibro improves when I go paleo for a week. When I drink beer, the gluten goes right to my bloodstream, so I get really achy joints. I try to increase my uptake of omega-3 to reduce inflammation. I am not sure if you have tried these methods or not, but I’d say they work for me.
