Depression. I've had relatively minor bouts of it since I was a young teen. Over the years I was on and off medication for it several times. I've opted not to take a prescription for it. Oftentimes I wonder if that's a smart or stupid decision. I love autumn. It's a peaceful, calm season to me. But (I'm assuming) the lack of sunshine throws me into depression every year. It makes me miserable and I hate it. Last night I was loving on my hubby, and out of nowhere it hit me like a ton of bricks...he noticed it too, and before I could do anything the tears were flowing. Generally my depression doesn't come out as sadness...it shows as my emotions being flat, and as irritability. I'm sick of it. Any tips? I don't want another miserable winter. By the end of last winter TMS had a strong grip on me, and I don't want that to become my new cycle.
