So I was going to write a post on situational depression - how it happens and how I believe it's real and how it doesn't necessarily degrade the notion of clinical depression. I wasn't sure that it was really mentioned in the recent series on depression.
For the record, I'm talking about the type of depression where one has recently lost a loved one, lost a job, went through a divorce or is in a stressful situation. In addition to therapy and medication, making changes to one's situation can be important as well. Sometimes I feel like that's heresy to some people, but that's my belief. PS. It appears that wry may agree with me! So I must be right. ;)
I decided I wasn't interested in writing a long post about that. What works for some people doesn't/won't work for others. In the end, people will reach the point where they realize they can't manage their own lives and change. Or they won't.
I will say, I have found personally, making changes to my situation(s) and perspective has greatly helped me.
Spring is definitely here, however. I was thinking we would get another snowfall - but it's March 19th and no snow yet! Yay!
Each year during the winter I keep thinking that my kids are watching too much television and too many movies - then, it never fails, the weather warms up and we migrate outside.
I'm not sure if these two thoughts are related or not. Perhaps they are more related than one would think.
