Even the darker, colder nights can be nice if you are in front of a roaring fire.
Yes, there's much to like about autumn.
It is often my hardest time of year. The time when my depression is at its worst.
I'm not sure why this is. I was first diagnosed at this time of year, and it was at the end of October a few years ago when I ended up being signed off work for a spell.
I sometimes think that is part of the reason - because I was unwell at that time of year, I assume I will be again, a sort of self-fulfilling prophecy.
I try to focus on the positive things - the things about autumn that I've listed above, looking forward to the season of Advent and Christmas.
So anyway, it's time for me to batten down the hatches, and get through the next couple of months.
