Depression, PTSD, Mental Illness

‘Tis the Season for Depression

I struggle with depression and have noticed this time of the year is harder, when that post-holiday slump hits. But God gives me joy when I ask and He sends others to help me back up.
These lyrics have been rolling around in my head for the past week and I thought I’d share:
‘Tis the season for depression.
Fa-la-la-la-laaa-la-la-la-la!
Sometimes it looks like aggression.
Fa-la-la-la-laaa-la-la-la-la!
Or you want to stay in bed.
Fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la!
Or you wish that you were dead.
Fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la!
Smoking pot is not the answer.
Fa-la-la-la-laaa-la-la-la-la!
It might even give you cancer.
Fa-la-la-la-laaa-la-la-la-la!
Overeating might seem fun.
Fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la!
Until you find you weigh a ton.
Fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la!
There’s no shame in feeling glum.
Fa-la-la-la-laaa-la-la-la-la!
It can affect anyone.
Fa-la-la-la-laaa-la-la-la-la!
Just admit when sadness pinches.
Fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la!
Denial keeps you in the trenches.
Fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la!
Call your doctor for a visit.
Fa-la-la-la-laaa-la-la-la-la!
Or meet with a therapist.
Fa-la-la-la-laaa-la-la-la-la!
Tell a friend that you need help.
Fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la!
Speak up for your mental health.
Fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la!
