Christmas Carols lead us to believe it's the most wonderful time of the year, but for many it's not.
Seasonal depression is a form of depression that is directly related to changes in seasons and winter is the most prevalent time people are affected. Depression is an illness and seasonal depression also is.
Many people suffer with depression year round, but those who suffer seasonally tend to be overlooked because many people do not believe it is real and it can be controlled. Seasonal triggers can spike feelings of loneliness or remorse in some.
Depression is an illness and it's time we all address it as such. It's not something we can 'snap out of' or 'get over'. It is as real of an illness as diabetes or emotional disorders or even suffering migraines.
