I had to chime in when I saw this question. There is a sound scientific reason for it. The electric charge in the air changes before a storm with a predominance of positive ions near the ground. In those who are more sensitive, atmosphere that's positively charged tends to make one agitated, irritable, headache-y & other unpleasant feelings.

After the storm passes, the air near the ground has a higher amount of negative ions which tend to make people feel good. The same effect is seen beside waterfalls, crashing surf, refreshing wind just after a rain - all situations that generate a negative charge in the air from friction.

Both positive & negative ions affect us by our bodies releasing certain histamines, hormones & neurotransmitters in response, depending on whether they're negative or positive charges.

I could be locked in a dark closet with ear plugs on & could always tell when a storm was coming & when it had passed. Some are very sensitive to the effects of our atmosphere. I absolutely LOVE windy, unsettled days as I feel SO alive. You're not abnormal in the least.

> I feel very agitated, anxious and depressed right before it is about to rain. After the storm, I feel wonderful. It is like this wonderful sence of community. Is this just my imagination or have others noticed similar things ??
