SAD is on its way
Posted 18 September 2007 - 10:54 PM
I have also lost my body clock and found myself really getting snappy at silly things.
I lost my temper with a plant, its a worry it really is.
Trouble is i come here and feel even worse, not because its you lot more because i feel so fucking selfish, that i moan on and on and dont get the time to answer everyones post.
I hate guilt i really do.

Your top concern is YOU at the moment.
I know you well enough to know that as I say something like that, you'll laugh at me and call me a hypocrite (possibly a braless one...), but the thing is, I am here helping you because you've been so nice to me in my dark times.
And as for taking care of yourself first, you are a wonderful person, and really special to me. You need to make sure you preserve your silly, beautiful self.

You come and post the same thing over and over and I will support you over and over. You do that for me. and I write a heck of a lot more and bawl.
Turn around SAD. Do you need full spectrum lighting or are you talking about being sad in general? Oh I bet that plant has heard a lot of things and they are sneaky when you turn your back on them -cheeky things.
Don't answer any posts unless you want to - not motivated by guilt. Until you want to. Maybe a few cozy nights relaxing and distracting will help.
Yes you are worth that and a lot more...let everything sit for a bit.
check in okay

For me it's been weird, I soooo don't want to have it that I try as hard as I can not to surrender to the SAD for a few months. I train a lot at the gym, I see my friends, try not to be alone, I try to maintain good sleeping habits, I try not to overeat etc.
But then I cannot hold it any longer and I collapse in march or april.... So my depression has been in spring and summer now! How weird. I am just starting to feel better now...
I don't know what means you use to diminish your SAD, light therapy, medication, exercise(i do know for me it's the best yet, training, but it's hard to go when you feel so low!).
Hope you can find your personal methods to reduce the effects of SAD. If I was better at budgeting I'd buy that SAD lamp...
I'm here if you need to talk.

Just concentrate on yourself at the moment and try to stay positive. I am certain this bad time will pass-
