Cloudy Days = Depressive Haze

Seven days without sun, makes one weak. (a nod and thanks to JW Snodgrass)

I feel rotten. I want to close my eyes and sleep every hour of the day away. People crowing about their recoveries on other websites. Bleh. I think it’s going to be a very bad winter. This kind of depression doesn’t usually hit until November. It’s September.

I know what I have to do to feel better. I don’t want to do it.

  1. 15-60 minutes of exercise a day
  2. less junk food
  3. reach out to friends
  4. clean the clutter out of our place

Expletive Expletive. Frozen in muck…

Two days have passed… After 7 days we may have an afternoon of sun! I may revive. I’ll keep you posted.

What are your coping strategies? How do you get through dark days?

It’s Manic Monday and that’s good news! Thanks for reading and commenting. -Rebecca
