Hey guys

I can confirm it, on cold wet days my CP is off the charts.

hi retread its peppa here

thanks heaps for your reply as its sincerely appreciated.

I did psychiatric nursing and thats why i know about cyclic depression- which can be related to the seasonal changes,
as
they have found with depression, that more people will become depressed in the winter months; than the summer ones.

i think they are doing research on this as well, but haven,t nursed since the assault and therefore don,t have any current links.

i must say though, that the theory about full-moons and people ending up in certain hospitals; needs researching- because it really does occur.!

that was a time of the month, that was always buisiest for us (no dis-respect meant) its just a fact and one; everyone was aware of.

best wishes with your research.

warmest regards peppa

Hi Peppa, thank you for making contact. It really is amazing the effect that weather has on people, one personal observation that has been backed up by a couple of friends in the police Force, is the amount of dangerous and erratic driving that occurs in the lead up to a full moon. They have commented that this is usually their busiest period for many offenses. I guess the term "Lunatic" must have some actual basis.

I hope that you are able to enjoy a restful evening.

All the Best

hi retread its peppa here

well done on finding the research to back up the theory-
about the weather affecting pain.
because
thats huge- well done!

I was smiling as i read your post just now , about your friends, discovering erratic behaviour; as the full-moon drew near.

its true, i tell you, because we used to see it all the time and hope that we weren,t working on those particular nights; -cause boy were they busy.

so your friends are right i just don,t think any real research has ever been done in this area.


it would make for an interesting paper though, trouble is , the staff would be so busy, there,d be no-one to document the stats
L.O.L.

hope you have a pain free weekend

warmest regards peppa

Hi Peter, I have noticed that on the bottom right of the topics that there is a "Latest Member" notification. I have tried to find where they have joined the forum, or introduced themselves, it would be good to be able to welcome them to the forum, I am a bit foggy at present, have I missed something somewhere? I am sure there was a topic "New Members Introduce yourself here", it might have been my imagination(stranger things have happened), or am I just having difficulty finding it this morning :(

All the Best
