God sometimes comes through in small, unexpected ways when we appeal to him for help. I think he appoints certain people to serve as angels right here on earth. A dear friend of mine, active for a long time on this blog, empathized with my problems coping with Seasonal Affective Disorder, and offered to purchase me a light therapy lamp, knowing I could not afford one. (They aren’t cheap). I burst into tears of gratitude when she told me she was buying me one. She didn’t want me to pay her back either.
Yesterday I got my package from Amazon. At first I couldn’t imagine why I was getting a package, since I haven’t ordered anything recently. I had forgotten about the light therapy lamp. But then I remembered, and excitedly opened the package.
It’s a handsome streamlined model, portable, perfect for propping up next to me while I write on my blog. It also makes a terrific reading light.
There really are angels among us. You just never know how God will come through. I’m also taking Melatonin (which regulates the sleep cycle) and St. Johns Wart (a natural herbal antidepressant). Two new front tires on my car so I don’t have to worry about sliding all over the roads when the ice and snow starts, and I’m good to go.
I’ll let you all know how this regimen works on my SAD.
Here are two photos of my new light (closed and open).
