It is December 6, and for much of the country recently, it has been dark and dreary. It's going to stay dark and dreary for a while yet. If you have a friend, mentor or counselor who you trust and who has good perspective, this is a good time of year to reach out to them for a little emotional support and, if that is appropriate for you, a medication checkup.
Your friends and family really do love you, even if they are being annoying or seem distant at the moment. I know this all is true, and I write this to remind me, and the people I care about, which, if you are reading this, includes you.
