OW! That is painful. Especially the part about how your question is the same as your subject. It hurts a little to read.

I think it's a good question - I'll be reading along in hopes of learning the answer.

Correction, Little, it was TWO good questions. Or in other words, too much of a good question.

Perhaps you're thinking of Seasonal Affective Disorder?

It's a literary term - and I cannot recall it - I have been searching and searching!

Personification is when the feelings of the characters are attributed to the natural, or inanimate, world...

Loke "sobbing skies" - "grey, surly clouds"

SCoates, you have to be right to pass off rude as pedantry. You forgot the getting it right part.

I don't think there is a single work for this so I will create one. The word is "pim".

What a good word, Nick. ~~~ Smile ~~~



emchugh4 : So this word is more literary than medical, any clues as to where you might have read or heard it?

I thought you'd like that word Joe. It's a perfectly good and easy to remember word that has not yet had a meaning attached to it.

I heard the term years ago at a funeral that i attended. the preist said the "word in question" because it (the day) fit with the mood of the day..... it was thunderstorming throughout the whole service. And I don't think 'PIM' is the right word for it ....too close to pimp, don't want people to get the wrong idea!

Nick and I are just kidding around about pim. It's not a real word,,,,, yet.

I've got to think about your word some more.

emchug, Are you thinking of "winter blues"
or, perhaps "cabin fever"

I think I know exactly how you feel when you cannot come up with a namer, title, restaurant, whatever.
I feel helpless, I don't listen to anything going on. I'm running the alphabet- it also drives me crazy. i'm really curious about your "word."
