  • I’m so with you. I’ve been battling it off and on the last few years, not always just around winter but usually. I hate it, I really do. It’s all I can do to pull myself out of bed in the morning. I’m blah all day. And then when it’s bed time? Every old piece of whatever the fuck that annoys me goes blowing through my mind at 8 million mph until 3am. I’m functioning as well, and I think that’s part of what makes it hard. You’re surviving, it’s not too noticeable to others, and you can still smile and laugh. As you said, you’re not breaking out the razor blades. This time I’ve actually been looking things up online for the big D word. Oy vey do I have it. I’m seeing my family over the holidays and so crazy about going, so I hope that maybe it’ll be enough to snap me out of it. Shitty money and moving AGAIN in a month or two helps not at all. If it’s not better then I think I’m actually going to see someone about it.

    Err, sorry to journal all over your comments. My blah has put me in little mood to blog but I’ll yack at people specifically all day long. ><

  • I’d like to join that commune as well. And this year, because every winter I LMS and have your Thursday moment and then descend into not even getting out of bed until afternoonish, I decided to try something a tad different. Less coffee + B complex vitamins. It’s not working-working, but it’s not not working. If you catch my drift? {Hugs}

    “a functioning depressive” you finally named what I am! Thank you!!

    I think it this time of year that is the worst for us “functioning depressives” I am looking out my window now and it’s 8:49am and it’s all dark and gloomy and the rain is about to set in. It’s morning time, yet it looks like it ready to be bedtime.

    *sigh* we will get through this :)

  • You’ve put into words what I’ve felt at different times like yourself. I haven’t identified a cycle yet, and being on meds has helped me, but reading your words as if they were coming out of my head helps.

    You can come to me whenever you need the biggest of virtual hugs.

  • If you want me to, I’ll come down there and cheer you up. I mean, you’re only about 6 or 7 hours south of me, and if it will cheer you up, I’ll gladly make the trip. You’ll just have to wait until I can find my clown makeup and a Volkswagen, but I’ll get there.

  • That is what I’ve felt my entire life. My highs, though tended to not ever get above the “I don’t care, but I’ll fake it”… and the lows (while never hide the razors) were awful. I had to go get help. The good news is, now, with the help of a minimal dose of a wonder drug, I’m “normal” (whatever the hell that is) and the lows are generally even above the “fake it” level.

    Depression, even seasonal sucks, but the good news is there is help. You don’t have to not care and there are medications that you can take for the seasonal blues so you *don’t* have to fake it.

  • i’ve felt like this for a lot of years. though, i want to WANT to do things. luckily (knock on wood) so far it hasn’t gotten me.i think having KJ has made a difference. basically i have been inside, which has always made a difference for me, and also we moved south a few hours so its still green here, and of course i’m too damn busy to worry about anything except why is baby crying, eat food, use bathroom, shower, repeat repeat repeat… but i can definitely sympathize with you. it really blows to feel like that year after year, and especially when you know its coming, and you fight it off but it wins anyway..

    Mr Lady’s post actually brought me to tears. Made me cry. Nothing I’ve ever read has ever done that before. That was beautiful. And so was this. Thank you Lotus.

    I have had this same thing for about 10 years now. It starts a week before Thanksgiving and clears up around the beginning of Feb. I thought it was SAD, but then I moved to FL last year where the sun is always shining and sure enough I have it pretty bad this year. I am sooooo tired all the time…it sucks.

    I think for me it is because years ago when I was a teen my father was battling cancer for two years before he died….and the holidays were always hard for me. Since then, I think my brain or whatever has just learned to be this way every holiday season regardless to the fact that is has been so many years ago. Then I start getting depressed about EVERYTHING. It’s awful. I think the worst part for me is the not caring about anything. I have lost so much interest in my favorite things.

    I do know what you are going through. Here’s hoping to a speedy climb up that ladder. :)

    December 09, 2008
  • Wow what a great description of what i have suffered from most of my adult life. And for me moving to Florida has definetely helped.
