September weather presents some challenges for those who struggle with depression. It means shorter days and darker days.
Fall presents a problem for those who struggle with SAD(season affective disorder). Coziness and pumpkin-flavored everything just doesn’t cut it for those people.
Next week I’ll begin a series devoted specifically to SAD. It is a genuine disorder based on scientific data which I will include.
So don’t despair about September, there are things you can do but you need to do them now, especially if you live in a northern state as I do.
There is no shame either. Besides, have you ever read where God shamed anyone because they were ill?
But does he instruct us how to get well!
For now, be comforted knowing you are not alone facing September and you can learn to manage the days ahead.
“My child, pay attention to what I say; turn your ear to my words. Do not let them out of your sigh, keep them within your hear; for they are life to those who find them and health to one’s whole body.” Proverbs 4: 20-22
God bless and have a great day.
