I hate having to struggle every year as winter approaches, gripping me and pinning me down. I long for Spring as soon as it hits, and this just seems to make it last longer. After a year out, this will also be my first year back to college, and I'm not sure how I'm going to cope. I need a light, but I can't afford it right now. I'm struggling emotionally, financially, and in every day life to overcome various illnesses.
I'm sure for the mini-rant, I just needed to post this somewhere where people might understand and I won't get the 'Why are you depressed?' or 'Cheer up' comments. I'm also a long-time lurker, first time poster, so hello all!
