Ask DL

Ask Dangerous Lee – During Christmas I feel alone and depressed. What is my problem?

Q: I’m not normally an unhappy person, but each year during Christmas I feel really alone and depressed. What is my problem?

Tasha

Flint, MI

A: You may be suffering from the “Winter Blues”. If so, I feel for you because I also get a lil’ depressed and very unmotivated during the cold seasons. “They” say there is special lighting for folks like us to use that will give us the feeling of sunlight, but I’m no dummy. If it’s not real sunlight I don’t want it. Besides, I know that it’s cold, wet, and grey outside. I guess our problem is that we live in Michigan and not Florida. We both should consult a physician on this one.

On the other hand, the media at large puts a lot of pressure on us to be joyous and uplifting during this time of year by selling us the perfect family holiday scene in  almost every Christmas film that has ever been made. Don’t let this lie fool you; no one has a family like that and if they do it’s not always peachy. I’m not sure what you believe in spiritually or otherwise, but rely on your own brand of faith to get through it. And remember, we only have a few more months of Winter to go!

Got a question for Dangerous Lee?
