Suicides drop around the holidays but go up afterwards (and in the spring apparently!). But that doesn’t mean depression and anxiety aren’t compounded or exacerbated by the holiday dazzle and frazzle.

Please, if you’re feeling depressed or anxious, reach out to those around you. Friends, family, spiritual leaders, medical professionals. There’s help, there are people who care about you and how you’re feeling.

If you feel you can’t speak to those who know you personally (sometimes shame and embarrassment can keep usĀ from reaching out), reach out to me! I am not a medical professional or a spiritual leader, but I am a fellow sufferer who is constantly on her journey to recovery.

I understand. I’m available. Don’t suffer alone.
