Attention fellow Mastodonians with Bipolar Disorder, sleep disorders, and depression!

Even though we鈥檙e gaining an hour, Daylight Savings Time is notorious for triggering mania, increasing symptoms of depression, and making it significantly harder for people to hit their natural sleep rhythms. Be aware that there may be an adjustment period as you settle in to your new schedule and please be gentle with yourself as you adjust! 馃挏馃挏馃挏

@MrsMouse that鈥檚 absolutely true, there are a lot more accidents and workplace incidents around DST too. It鈥檚 just not great for people!

@checkervest I did not know this! As someone with depression, thank you for the PSA

@checkervest I know it's so, so wrong, but I kind of hope for a little mania to counter the awful depression for just a little while. :(

@JenXer oh no, I hope things start feeling better for you!

@checkervest I knew this and yet still felt a weight lift from my shoulders at the reminder. Thank you <3

@checkervest can someone remind me why we do daylight savings time again? I don't really see the point

@DJWalnut at this point there鈥檚 not really a real reason, we just do it because we鈥檝e been doing it

@checkervest I mean, I don't get how this is still a thing. It's something we all have to go to the trouble of doing it twice every year. It cost businesses millions of dollars in Lost productivity every year, you would think that things are in the interest of big business would get done, as that is the only reason anything ever gets done in this capitalist hell world

@DJWalnut it鈥檚 great for the golf industry apparently
