  1. Thank GOD I got through the holidays without mania or depression! I’m glad you did too, Cass!!!! Frankly, I was glad when it was over……except (on a rather superficial note, I know) it sure was nice not having to get up early and get 2 kids to school on time!

  2. Oh, the winter holidays are always a dangerous time for people who suffer from mental illnesses, and I’m so glad to hear you managed to get through them without any mood episodes! Hooray! Good for you, Dyane. I totally feel you about getting the kids up early, though! The school juggling is not fun.
