This weekend I was made aware of the depth of depression some people are suffering from, following such a long and drawn out winter season. Crabbiness, sleeping a lot, excessive drinking, picking fights, seeing everything wrong with the world and having no hope for better days ahead, were all the symptoms I was exposed to this weekend. And I was shocked by how many people are experiencing some or all of these symptoms.
Because Saturday was a pretty decent day, those of us who may experience some seasonal affective disorder had a great day of feeling productive and having a general smile on our faces, which sorted out the SAD candidates from the truly depressed, in my observation.
Let’s send healing prayers and kind thoughts of loving protection to those who are suffering from depression, asking that this overbearing weight be lifted from their hearts.
