Hi Rick L:
I relate to what you're saying about getting married without awareness of the effects--or even clear memories of--my abuse. She is glad I now know and have a good T & support like here to help me. So am I!
I also relate to what you're saying about depression being affected by the seasons. Also by the weather. In my case, the body is also affected. These of course are intertwined, as I have fibromyalgia (FM) a chronic pain & nerve disorder.
I haven't been able to figure out much as far as patterns with the seasonal or weather changes and how they affect my depression, and my FM. I do know this time of year is tough, and basically it has to do with the holiday season, which was never very good for me as a child.
However "Little Wuame" and I are going to enjoy this holiday season with our family!
Rick, may you be able to increasingly live beyond your painful memories, whatever the weather.
"I can't stand pain. It hurts me."
