    YES. Winter is the worst time of the year for my mental health. There’s not as much sunlight, Cabin fever is a thing so I don’t want to go outside…. It just sucks.

      yeah its true for most people unfortunately. dont worry about it, it comes and goes. in the end you’ll be alright.

      some people get seasonal depression, and some people have generalized depression, and some people have both. Just because you’ve recently become depressed doesn’t mean it will get worse during the winter. In fact, lots of people love the winter because of the holidays and the snow and the coziness of the season. So don’t stress out about it :) if it happens, it happens, and if it doesn’t, it doesn’t. No point in worrying a ton about something that might not affect you at all.

      being depressed and having depression are very different. Hopefully you will not have many adverse responses to the winter months but you can always take extra steps to take care of yourself, and maybe talk to your dr

      theres no right way and theres no wrong way. my best advice is to stay jn touch with the people you love and try to go out with them as often as you can. try to stay involved in activities so you don’t isolate yourself in your own thoughts.
