To say I hate sunshine is a bit of an understatement. I actually prefer lots of cloud. At least then I can function as a reasonably normal human being.
Don’t get me wrong – I understand that other people seem to love sunshine. I have also heard about the health benefits of being outside in sunny weather (skin cancer not included of course).
If you find me a seat in shade I will happily sit in it. Just don’t ask me to move very far from my seat.
As you may already be aware – I suffer from something called Photophobia. This means I wear something called “Transition” lenses (formerly known as “Reactolite”). To be honest – nothing works as well for me in bright wall-to-wall sunshine as being told I don’t have to go anywhere though.
I must be one of the few people in existence for whom sunshine actually raises stress levels. It can also tire me out mentally extremely quickly.
So – next time the weather is sunny please spare a thought for those of us who would rather it was cloudy.
