For the past five or six years I have felt sick for the last couple weeks of December through the first couple weeks of January. The first year it happened I thought the nausea, dizziness and fatigue meant I might be pregnant. The next couple of years I thought I was coming down with the flu. Now I just recognize that I'm going to feel like crap when the days are short. It's probably the expression of an instinct that wants me to hunker down and hibernate. That, however, is not really a possibility. So instead I'll just nap when I can and wait for it to be over.
