    I grew up in the North. I have seen others in the south who havent dealt with Cabin Fever. My guess is it may help on Navy Ships, and individuals demeanor. My question i guess is what outlook do think Cabin Fever portrays on individuals and how does it help or hinder people?

    I spent twenty years in the USN. Never got cabin fever on a ship. Submariners maybe, but I could walk up on deck and see the Pacific, etc. Kinda big, that.

    I live in Canada. I go out every day. The only thing I suffer from is a pressing desire to get back inside the cabin.

    For me apart from one over the top crazy notion that god was telling me to paint something which no doubt was a result of not getting sleep for a couple of days due to intense astronomy activity☺....I have found cabin living alone a positive thing in so far as you become less keen to buy stuff you dont need and moreover less hung up with fashion gossip and trivia in general and become less interested in the world news and sporting events that others seem to be emotionally attached.

    You can always go outside Sun or rain...main thing eat and sleep properly.

    in the interests of trying to be helpful, cabin fever is a mental thing
    thus an answer is probably going to be a mental thing.

    i am not quite sure of the seriousness of your question so i shall hold off on the seriousness of my answer....
    to lay out a few realms
    anxiety & claustrophobia is the more serious side
    basic exercise should always be maintained in some way

    the other is new stimulus for the mind

    the other is a consciousness thing(extremely complex and not sure i feel comfortable discussing on an open board).

    lastly but also connected to a few of the others is habituated process of attachment to form addictive attributes

    emotional attachments and addictive materialism are also things to consider.

    I was on a Ballistic missile submarine in the Navy. We would submerge for 70+ days without ever surfacing. Everyone goes a little nuts in that situation. Where I live now there are long winters but it isn't the cold or staying inside that gets to me it's the lack of sunlight.

    If you're not crazy you can't even get into sub school.

    Funny how our complex minds can be so dependent on such simple things.

    Seasonal affective disorder

    I have experienced seasonal affective disorder( i suspect that is an inherited survival mechanism), but never suffered the irritability associated with cabin fever...
