You’re not crazy, the weather is absolutely baffling. I mean, you are crazy, but it has nothing to do with the weather, it is just the constant beat of anxiety running through your brain: they’re going to figure out I’m worthless, everything I do will go wrong, I was never any good, all I am to other people is a disappointment, etc. — all that stuff, apart from being true, is what’s making you crazy, because of the way it continually loops itself through your thought patterns as you do your best to be decent during the day only to see every effort result in the same miserable failure you have become all too familiar with. But that has nothing to do with the weather, which is just totally nuts. It’s hot and the it’s going to be cold! Who even knows what the hell is going on out there?
