It's only mid November and I can already tell this winter is going to be hard. I've had this problem my whole life, even when I was a child. I try to get as much as sunlight as possible. I force myself to go out and be with other people. Thank goodness for Thanksgiving & Christmas because it keeps me busy.
What is your way of dealing with it?

I catch a lot of flak for my feelings about the topic of depression in general, because while I acknowledge that it is real and does exist, I think too many people allow themselves to feel helpless against it.
I'll say it until my last days, the mind is the most powerful thing in the world, it can easily defeat depression and other ills, you just have to put in the effort and believe.
Oh and get lots of vitamin D, both kinds

There will be quite a few days this winter Ill just bundle up in warm cloths and go sit by the fire ring in the back yard with a roaring fire. It gets me outside breathing the fresh air and seems to be all it takes to wipe out some of the winter funk.
And Irish Whiskey. Lots of Irish Whiskey.

Plus I work indoors and go outside as little as possible when it's cold so there's that.
I fuging HATE cold weather, hate it. I'd rather it be 100 and humid than below 50.
It is my understanding that this winter is supposed to be a cold one. Yay.

The vit d thing is an issue. I have been on prescription doses of it off and on for about 5 years. when I'm not on the Rx dose, I take 4,000 IU/day. If I ever stop taking it, my vit d level will plummet. I also have to take 1600mg calcium daily because it's low as well. It is my understanding that these two things work together and it will cause body aches and depression symptoms if they are low.
