Dark realisations

I have just realised, lying here unable to sleep, some things that I do not like about myself. I seem to be entering a dark, depressed, SAD phase. I know this because my spendaholic, want-all-the-things, only-happy-for-a-few-hours-when-I-get-cool-stuff-in-the-mail and secrecy tendencies are looming and this only happens when I am depressed. We cannot afford for this to happen this year as hubby is freelancing again and so cash is very sparse.

So, rather than risk not being able to control this and also risk my marriage, I am looking for pen-pals. Getting letters or postcards in the mail and sending out the same would make my day every time. I can afford to send letters and cards in the UK and, once I check with hubby, perhaps internationally as well. Packages and so on, though, might be pushing things. I will have to see.

Vitamin D saves me from winter/lack-of-sun depression. Good luck!

I take a decent dose of Vit D amongst my other supplements. I guess I need to up the does for a couple of months. I am also taking an antidepressant and have been for years. Clinical long-term depression (also MS is depressing and causes depression) but it always gets worse in Nov/Dec.

I was wondering if you might be interested in this: my friend Tan makes crafty things and doesn't sell them, but swaps them with others http://www.facebook.com/TheSwappageEmporium. The ones up at the moment are for Christmas decorations. She's in the UK, and you can fit a fair bit into a large letter-sized package, if that's ok for your postage budget. She does these in batches throughout the year, when she feels like it.

Thanks for the link - that sounds interesting! I have also knitted a LOT of preemie hats (for preemies / premature babies) but have yet to find anywhere local to donate them to (a local NICU).
