winter seems to surround my mind like a blanket. it's my favourite season, full of christmas spirit, the smell of ginger, and snow days, but it also darkens my mind. depression constantly threatens to surface, dancing with my thoughts, bringing back the what ifs? when it hurts to get up the morning and I just want to cry. my therapist tells me i have seasonal affective disorder.
i find peace within myself; i like to be alone. crowds send my mind into flurries. nobody else seems to understand this.
ten pounds to boot before christmas. care to join me?
