Sunshine and AC keep me on track

When you deal with anxiety & depression all of your life, it can be such an overwhelming burden to carry.

I’m in our 68’s & still toiling to manage our mental & emotional health almost biweekly.

It’s been this way since I was in highcollege & maybe before, but much of that time was spent at home. I grew up poor & the two of us didn’t have much in our home. There wasn’t any sort of residential Heating & Air Conditioning in our house & I wore hand me downs. My parents were so beat down from their jobs & trying to keep us fed that they often turned to alcohol to numb the pain. I’m cheerful that I at least steered clear of that. Still, I’ve had to easily pay close attention to just how I’m feeling & adjust when need be… One sure fire way to help me stop spiraling has been to get out of the air conditioner & get some sunshine on our face, but literally just putting our face into the sunshine can help me pull out of a dive into dark spots. Often times, I’d hold on with all I had just to get to dinnertime. Then, I’d get out of the commercial Heating & Air Conditioning for some air but it was the sunshine I was looking for. In fact, I live where I do because the sunshine shines here more than just about anywhere else. But as I’ve slowed down, I’ve needed so help betting our vitamin sunshine. Thankfully, I now have a ductless heat pump out in our sunroom. This way I can have some air conditioner when the heat gets to be too much for me to be outside. I’m sure thankful for that because the sunshine still keeps me on track.
