DEPRESSION

Happy Labor Day and start this next week well

 

Happy Labor Day, everyone.

I hope this is a day filled with fun and relaxation for all of you.

But as you think of this next week, start to prepare for the fall. I think each season gives us the opportunity to start anew. Maybe not in all states but in states what experience changing seasons, it kind of feels like it is new beginning because our weather changes so much.

labor day

Fall in Michigan is breathtakingly beautiful. God seems to paint with his most beautiful, rich colors in the fall. It seems like he might just be showing off. But then, maybe he does!

But the fall season in these climates also means fewer daylight hours. By Christmas, our daylight hours start to wane as early as five in the afternoon. That’s assuming we had any sun that day at all. Because we can go days in Michigan with no sun. That’s why Labor Day is a really big deal in my part of the world. People are frantically trying to soak up the sun before school begins etc, as if they can somehow store it for the long, sunless winter days.

So enjoy this beautiful day. Tomorrow I will post about how September can be a dangerous month for someone who battles depression. Stay tuned.

God bless and stay safe.

  1. Karen, Thanks as always for your comments.I’m not sure Septemeber is “dangerous” but it certainly presents some of the problems I mentioned. Be sure to read today’s post. And please get the book I mention. Also, go to my MENU page where I list some books I recommend reading. Depression can be treated without medication. However, because of your physical limitations, I can see where exercise is probably out of the question. If you can’t afford these books, don’t have a NOOK or I-pad on which you can download books from the library, or can’t get to the library, please let me know> I will pray for you today. Sounds like this is a rough time for you. God bless you, Karen.

  3. I was not aware that September was a dangerous month for someone with depression. Being one of those sufferers myself, I anxiously await for your wise words. It was on October 1, 2012 that my mother passed away, from cervical cancer, so September leads me to remember that day, as though it were yesterday. The mess of emotions that I go through at this time of the year are great. I do take two medications for depression, but sometimes that isn’t even enough.
