Sunday Reflections: A Week in Review ~ 11/7/21

That’s a wrap. Another week in the hopper. We fell back an hour overnight. I really hate that darkness will come around so early. We’re going into the part of the year that I hate. Seasonal depression is a thing y’all. I don’t care what my former therapist says about us not living close enough to the equator for seasonal depression to be a thing. Of course, maybe I’m making an excuse to be lazy and feel sorry for myself. Womp womp.

November is the annual anniversary of a pretty awful event. One I kept pretty close to the vest. We had a really rough patch from the Friday after Thanksgiving 2020 through April 2021 to include the Christmas Eve dust up. The worry that is a knot in my stomach hasn’t let up. Though I see glimmers of hope.

As Lulu and I bonded yesterday, I asked her how she felt about the anniversary. Better than me, she’s fine. Says it feels like another life. Like it didn’t happen to her. And right now things are sunshine and rainbows. I guess that’s successfully moving on. Whew! Now for me to do the same.

Alrighty, let’s put up the roll call.

  1. SAD certainly exists in the “sunbelt.” When I was working there were days when I’d get up in the dark, go to work, and come home and suddenly it is dark again. For someone who works for a living, even in California winter is a dark time.

    People who don’t experience SAD are skeptical of its existence. There are a LOT of conditions where people assume there’s nothing to it because they don’t personally experience it.

    1. Glad for the validation. That is exactly what it is like for me. You would like a therapist would be more open but nope, shut me down as not a thing. Here I thought I’d cracked the code for myself. lol Thing is when spring rolls around those feelings disappear until the next winter. Call it whatever you want for me it’s real.
