“Depression and the holiday season” tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”

December 7, 2016 by The ReadyWriter


holiday-depressionThe holidays are supposed to be a time of joy and celebration, but for some people they are anything but….Because we all deal with different issues this holiday season, it is not always a joyous occasion. We all have different burdens that we may bare and the holiday season can unleash every ounce of one’s dysfunction.

Some people are dealing with sadness and the stress of spending time in a dysfunctional environment, being with a loved one or just dealing with loneliness.

Sadness and depression is real, and if your feelings of sadness during the holidays are accompanied by suicidal thoughts, do one of the following immediately:

  • Call 911.
  • Go immediately to a hospital emergency room.
  • Contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (1-800-273-8255).

In the meantime, tune in LIVE at 6:30 p.m. EST on “Conversations Of A Sistah” via blog talk radio for my monologue on this topic of discussion and how to deal with such despair.

The “conversation links” in this post will access the online show.

See you on the air!!
