Why Beautiful Sunny Days in London Bring Out My Anxiety

So I've heard of Seasonal Affective Disorder and how it affects people during winter time but more recently especially since having my daughter I have found my anxiety heightens during the summer especially on beautifully sunny days. I haven't really talked about it before because the few ties I have I've been told I'm being ridiculous.

Beautiful weather is so rare in London that I feel a blinding amount of panic to make the most of it.  My brain then starts screaming objections at me making me want to just go back to bed. Then, in the evening I will feel down about not doing anything. 

Exhausting isn't it?

I then feel like shit for making Willow miss out on what could have been a really fun day because I can't get my brain to shut up.
