Get ready East Coast--sleeplessness, boredom and irritability await you. People with Cabin Fever, the condition very closely associated with people who do not have anything to do, suffer these affects by remaining indoors for long hours on account of heavy snowfall outside. And for you “big city” night owls, Cabin Fever is also used as a term for lack of intercourse (something a city dweller rarely has too little of). A feeling of isolation can cause instant depression. You would like to move around with people and be active, because the more activities he or she indulges in the better he or she feels.
As the French poet and playwright Alfred De Moussett said, “Winter is a disease." So buck up! Now here’s the bad news--Excessive intake of alcohol, caffeine and nicotine are discouraged if you are affected by this malady.
My suggestion—is to catch up on your reading. Grab a book off the shelf that you don’t have to let anybody know about. Yes, guys grab your wife’s chick-lit. Women, grab a copy of that completely juvenile raunchy comedy (written for adolescent and college age boys). Read, enjoy! Or you can just go snowshoeing.
