‘Round the Bend

Crazy is as crazy does, the will to live is stronger

Pour out the tea, pour up the rum, the nights are getting longer

Early darkness crowds around, the hour’s barely five

And we throw stones to prove for once that we’re all still alive.

I was made of sterner stuff when once I lived a southern life

But these winter days, cold north wind haze, cut me like a jagged knife.

Build up the fire for pity’s sake, and turn on all the lights

My sanity is near an end and I’m all out of fight.

  1. Leslie, have you been checked for vitamin D deficiency? Or do you take a vitamin D supplement? Three years nearly now since I discovered I needed it. Years of anti-depressions back and forth before and always much worse at this time of year.
    Your words above remind me so much of how I dreaded this time of year. I don’t love it yet – too much of a sun worshipper for that (when it visits) – but I can cope with it now. There’s a dedicated site to it here – https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/am-i-deficient-in-vitamin-d/#
    Forgive me sticking my oar in – it may not be that at all – but might be worth checking out all the same. I know it worked for me.x
