I know what you mean, I've had the non-sailing blues before. I wish it was so simple. What I'm dealing with is far deeper & more complex than that.smc wrote:Also this time of year many suffer "seasonal depression" colder weather, darker days. Could also relate to out of sailing season depression, I've got a bit of that going on and can't wait to get out on the bay for a blast.
Thanks Keely, there's a link to beyondblue earier in this thread, I'll go & have another read. Also helpful is that I have a friend through sailing who is a psychologist. Think I need to go & arrange a chat.Keely wrote:So the first step is knowing that something's not right... which you do, but when the Black Dog becomes your companion it can be hard to remember that he's beside you and not part of you, such is his hold at times. Maintaining contact with friends and letting them know that things aren't all that great is good.
Knowing where to get help is important too. beyondblue has heaps of great info on their website. Also, take note that sometimes seeing a psychologist is helpful... and a lot easier now you can get a referral from your GP and get medicare rebates too.
