Does anyone else find depression, stress or anxiety gets worse AFTER Christmas?

Its like coming back down to earth with an absolute bang! I have so many financial stresses, business and personal. I know I can't run away from it but I just feel like I'm going to start the new year on an all-time low.

I turn 29 on the first of Jan and I determined to not enter my 30's this mess that I am. I just feel so bloody lost! My head is that cloudy and filled with anxious thoughts, paranoia and stress that I just cannot concentrate. Ever.

Would it maybe help to put it all down on paper in some kind of a list, make it more manageable maybe

Jan is an awful month.
As you said, the big letdown after the party mood and all the wind up over what is really just one meal and opening presents. The financial headache of paying down the credit card.... and a five week month till payday. The days are still short. The weather is damp. It is a long time till spring.

Oops... that could sound like a littany of depression, not good here! sorry!

I usually go skiing in Jan to get a fix of super bright light.
