Real talk on Seasonal Affective Disorder

on November 18, 2013

It’s that time of year again.

Waking up to a light dust of snow this morning only made me want to curl back up into the ball that I had just forced myself out of.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is beginning to seep inside the lives of the Vitamin D deprived, and let me be the first to say that it blows.

Living with a mental illness is difficult enough. When the temperature drops, so will my optimism.  I’ve felt the lowest of lows while the snow falls, and I know I’m not alone.

I began this post planning to mention all-natural ways to help relieve that pain – Vitmain D supplements, exercise, or specialized lamps that mimic sunlight.

Instead, here are a few reminders.

You are loved.

You are special. You are important.  You are beautiful. You are unique.

No one should ever make you feel inferior or unworthy of anything – especially your life.

Feel that heartbeat? You’re here for a reason, and it would be a damn shame for that to be cut short. You don’t know what you’re capable of yet, but you owe it to yourself to find out.

Go ahead. Show that stunning smile off.

Not ready? That’s okay too, but take the time to make yourself better. You are worth it.

The sun may set, and it may not shine so bright all the time, but it will rise again and so will you.
