Whether it is linked to the departure of my late husband, or of other worries, it's not very clear... Perhaps a combination of the two results in something so devastating.

Then of course there's also SAD, an acronym for Seasonal Affective Disorder. It often strikes those living in a country where there are changes in season and typically occurs in winter, whereby the days grow shorter - less light, lower temperature.
