If you're reading this, thanks. I'm grateful. I've been battling with depression for years. It's worse during the Winter months and in the past I've had bouts of depression followed by periods of great positivity.Typically I'll be non-productive in anything for weeks and then get a to the point where I pick myself up and force myself to get on with life; exercise, catch up with work, eat healthy.
My problem at the moment is that this cycle is continuing but the down times are becoming deeper and longer and the positive times fewer with less productivity during them (a week or a few days of being back on track and then right back to being low).
I know I self medicate with drink. I know it's worse in Winter. But I'm so tired. I just want to been more even all the time. I'd gladly give up the swings for a more stable life. How do people find balance?
