In my case,Xmas seems to amplify my depression, making it worse. I've even seen statistics which show that the incidence of suicide is higher during this time. In my case, I'm not suicidal but at least gloomy and morose. What worsens the gloom is the Xmas song "I'll be home for Xmas," which reminds me of my best friend that died several years ago. Most likely, my moroseness will disappear after Xmas, I think. So I wonder if any of you others feel their gloom amplified and made worse during the Xmas season.
