Drowning in Depression

Long time without a post, sorry about that. I am really struggling with depression. Every single day when I wake up I can feel that it has gotten a bit worse since the day before. I feel like I’m drowning. Trying to scream under water but of course I can’t, my lungs just fill with water.

Seasonal Affective Disorder/Holiday Blues

β€œOne of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon β€” instead of enjoying the roses blooming outside our windows today.” β€” Dale Carnegie

Every year when Halloween time is upon us, and the clocks roll back an hour – it happens. I go from “my” version of okay to seriously down in the dumps within days of cold weather time. It is exaggerated when it’s dark outside at 4pm here in NY too. This feeling will last until May. I know because this happens every darn year.
