I have been battling depression for several weeks; the downside of my usual hypomanic state.  I'm feeling better and more energetic today.  It doesn't hurt that Geenwood Publishing, who published books 2, 4, and 5, are asking for chapters from my book on early gunsmithing.


  1. Perhaps you are suffering from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder)(lack of sunlight). There are lights designed to combat this problem. Some of them are designed to work on computer desks.

  2. There is some SAD (my daughter too). The 7000K LED bulbs are doing a world of good. The underlying problem is mild bipolar disorder which the stroke has aggravated.

  3. In my case, I'd welcome more hypomania and less depression in the mix.
