From Chanukah to Christmas, Kwanzaa to New Year’s Eve, we are supposed to be celebrating and feeling positive about the future.
We usually cheer ourselves up and get into the holiday spirit.
But, last year and especially this year, it has gotten harder and harder, says Carole Lieberman, M.D., known as America’s Psychiatrist.
“Each holiday season, some people suffer from ‘Holiday Blues’, which is due to our feeling nostalgic for holidays gone by, when we were little kids receiving armloads of presents, or when we were in a heady romantic relationship, or when we were in some other situation that our memory tells us was better.
But, this year, some people will go deeper into depression and even contemplate suicide”, Lieberman told Good Morning NH.
She offers up some ways to protect yourself and your loved ones.
