Thanks Karen for your post. I see my psych Dr next week so will talk to her about the meds. I may just be having a bad time lately. My older son returned today from his vacation so I am feeling better knowing I am not alone in the house. I am taking my "dear" dil to lunch and botanic gardens on Mon. I hope the day goes OK. She actually is very shy one on one so I will probably havr to do most of the talking. And I don't think she would do anything to upset me so it hopefully will go smoothly. Will let you know. As far as depression I have had it for a very long time although I didn't know what it was. I can pinpoint it back to high school which for me was like the prehistoric era ago, lol. I only got treatment starting about 8 yrs. ago. Again I truly appreciate your posts - you always make me feel better and that is a wonderful thing for me.
I have heard of people suffering more in the winter but you are the first person that I have heard of who suffers more in the summer so this is a learning curve for me! I guess if you can treat SADS (Seasonal Affective DisorderS) in winter, you must be able to do something for the summer. Perhaps psychotherapy may help get to the root of why such a problem exists? Im stabbing in the dark, but I think im in the right area!
Good Morning Aurora,
I am sorry that summertime is tough for you. It seems like the whole world is out there having fun, doing familiy things, taking vacations and here we sit. Your not alone, I feel that way summer and winter and I get stuck in the black hole just as you do. So how do you think we can break this cycle?
