This winter has been a long and cold one...and with other family problems going on, it has been a really depressing one...I have had next to no energy to do anything at home...go to work, come home and just want to sit, do nothing (hang on computer) and have not done much sewing all winter.I do some reading, and a bit of knitting, but sewing, which is usually my "therapy" hasn't been what I have been doing much of this winter. I sure hope that the warmer weather this next week will help. It probably is a combination of depression and SAD. (I do take a medication for the depression).
My brother died last fall, and my father has Alzheimer's and is slipping away piece by piece, my mother has health problems, hospitalized last month, and having some testing done the end of this month, so there are concerns for her health too. Six years ago my husband died, so that makes for long lonely winters anyway.
Just wondering if any of you also have the winter blues and how you deal with it. I really want to get back into a creative mode.
