Seasonal depression?

I stopped writing because I thought I had nothing worth sharing, but as weeks are dragging on, I begin to believe that it’s because of the seasonal depression. I feel the change in the air passing right through my bones, the temperature is dropping day by day, the dark clouds are constantly hovering over the city and I can feel my thoughts getting drenched in all this humidity.

My head feels heavy and I have no interest in doing anything, I feel no excitement nor sadness. I feel empty, void. I’m moving incredibly slow, sluggish, slower than in slow motion, while everything around me is spinning so fast. I have such low energy that I can’t concentrate on anything. If I try reading, the words just fly away from the pages, but they never reach my mind. I feel the need to sleep more, but if I do I feel guilty for wasting time when there are so many things to do.

I can’t believe it’s that time of the year again. Everything seems so dream-like, as if I’m looking through a dirty window. The scenery is unclear and out of reach. I don’t even know what should I do: give in and let it pass, lose myself in my own mind, go with the flow or resist it, fight it off and force myself to rise above it?

  1. I find myself believing I don’t have much to share sometimes..

    What do you do when you start feeling like that? It seems like writing about it helps you?

      Yes, writing helps and also doing some research on various things, reading more and getting inspiration from others. Fueling the desire to write is very important.

  2. So much recognition here. I wish I could say something useful, but I’m afraid I can’t really.
