Drawings From The Top Of The Seasonal Affective Disorder Roller Coaster

Winter is coming and so are the memes.

Lighthearted images of boots, snow, and coffee cups. I sink a little lower. I try not to take it personally when people profess their undying love of Winter. It’s just … I cannot share in their enthusiasm. I am sitting at the top of a tall roller coaster looking down and with no way off the ride until Spring comes.

If you deal with Seasonal Affective Disorder you might find yourself in some of these drawings. Or maybe your roller coaster has bumps and dips at different places. Either way, it’s winter and we are the people on the after-ride photos looking like they’d rather be anywhere else.
