This time of year is hard for me

When the days start to get shorter and the wind starts to blow and the clouds start to come in I start to get depressed. It’s hard every year. It’s not as bad this year as some, but still I feel it coming on. I’m trying to keep myself upbeat but it’s hard. Negative thoughts start to creep in. I’m thinking about taking a class at the Community College to keep me up and moving but I’m afraid I’ll get overwhelmed. I’ve been trying to get a hold of the local chapter of NAMI to get involved in peer support meetings but I can’t get anyone to call me back yet after 2 attempts to get a hold of them. I guess I’ll keep trying, I’m sure their busy. Until then I’ll just kick back and watch the leaves change I guess.

You have a good point. I do have Christmas to look forward to. I’ll really enjoy it this year for the first time in many years so that’s one good thing. Thanks Kevon

I’ve been feeling really off lately too. I wonder is it due to the changing seasons…

I remember last year on my birthday, December 17th, I got “The Birthday Blues”. It was a depression that I think maybe lasted a good 2 months, so I’m really hoping it doesn’t happen again this year.

I hope you don’t get it again too. Hey my daughter’s birthday is December 18th. One day off. Christmas babies. I always gave her an extra birthday in July because she got ripped off for having it so close to Christmas. My brother called it an un-birthday. I don’t why I thought of that.
