I suffer from occasional depression. It usually occurs if I am distracted from the things that I am working on and that are important to me. They say it can also be caused from a chemical-imbalance, although I do not believe that is a factor in my case..
Depression is something I have to ride out and get through. Exercise helps burn off some of the anguish, but getting rid of whatever is distracting me helps the most.
Christmas and New Years are always depressing because everyone is caught up in the wave of obligation that comes with both and I think that we all suffer from some depression during these times. Personally, I wish they would disappear! And when, finally every remnant of these distractions are gone I always feel better.
Let’s face it, these holidays have more to do with bumping up that fourth quarter for “The Man” that they do with the really important things, in life, like family and friends. I’m good to my family and friends all year and do not need sociatal forces telling me that these times are when i must be generous to the people I love! Every year, I feel violated by these so called “Holidays.”
I am sick and tired of the media and the powers that be jerking my tears for thirty five days at the end of every year!
