Every year

Every year I get depressed when it's dark, cloudy, and the days are short. Every winter I become lethargic and sluggish, retreating into fantasy, books, and tv to try to wait it out. Every year I beat myself up for being lazy.

Then the sun comes out and I have energy again and start getting things done.

Obviously it's not laziness. It's depression.

Why can't I remember this and stop beating myself up?

Oh yeah, beating yourself up is also a symptom of depression.

I need to post this in my home so I see it every day.
