There was a particularly lively discussion in the comments last week about dealing with (seasonal) depression and anxiety. If anyone is grappling with depressive symptoms, I recommend taking a gander at that comment thread for lots of suggestions and support from people dealing with the same issues! Or . . . similar issues! I found it quite wonderful how many people took the time and care to offer help to what amounts to strangers on the internet.
I'm a big believer in the power of online support groups. 'Online' is kinda the key word here--I find them much more approachable than in-real-life communities, with all that eye contact and small talk and real human bodies existing in space. (shudder) I can handle conventions when I'm behind a booth--because it provides a clear role for me to play (seller!)--but once I'm out in the open I'm a total mess!
