Seasonal Depression

Sunday, February 16, 2014

I woke up this morning feeling utterly depressed. It's something that happens every year around this time. There's really nothing going on. No holidays, no birthdays, no reasons to celebrate. There's also really crappy weather.

I can't remember the last time it didn't snow here in Binghamton. It's getting quite old. Granted I've never cared for the warm, hot weather that hits us around May/June, but I also have places to go.

Like my job.

Moving to the country wasn't necessarily a good idea, especially since I don't have four-wheel drive. Maybe someday, though.

Just got back from Wal*Mart. Bought cat litter, chapstick and Special K Cracker Chips. While they're still fairly high in sodium, I find it's better than real potato chips or-gasp!-Oreos. emoticon

I plan on going walking at the mall before work tomorrow. Sometimes I grimace just thinking about the day ahead, and I realize that I worry way, way too much. We all need to just take one day at a time.

    My two cents would be that my best writing comes when I am depressed. Use this time to dig out some deep dark profound thoughts. I think all of us in the northern hemisphere are suffering a bit of cabin fever now. Winter seems to have particulary hard and long all over this country. Roofs collapsing from the weight of the snow, schools cancelled, people stranded for 24 hours in their cars or just giving up and leaving them along interstates, flooding, mud's bad everywhere. The coast lines in England are taking a wallop and they are having flooding everywhere. I think JACKSGRAN has had damage to her roof. I know lots of people are still without power and internet signals are wonky. I suspect most of us are feeling anxious for spring to get here.

    Good deal on the mall-walking! I find moving my body in whatever way I can helps a lot to bust the winter blahs.

  Have you thought about getting one of those daylight lamps? Friends of mine have used them with great success. Hang in there! emoticon

    I understand what you mean! It seems like there is so much going on October, November, December that February and March seem so...boring. I skipped January because that is always the nice break from the previous months. If I don't keep myself busy or focused on something, I fall under a depression. You just need to find something that you can look forward too. Learn a new hobby, or pick up a old one. I have been really focusing on working out and becoming the new me. And so far this year I have kept my chin up! You can do it! Keep your chin up and focus on each day!
