So many of the people I care about are suffering from one form of depression or another, especially at this time of year… myself included to an extent. Decreased appetite, some free-floating gloom, mostly just catching myself with sometime despair. Once I recognise the problem for what it is, I can take steps to counter it, either by thinking about the counter to the source of whatever is causing my dark mood… for a lot of people it isn’t that simple. I have a very real desire to help folks ride out the storm, to be supportive and give aid wherever I can… I understand that all sunshine makes a desert, and I’m no fair-weather friend, anyhow, to stretch the metaphor a bit more.
My goal is simply to be there for those that can benefit by it. I feel better when I know I’m of aid.
