on Feb 14, 2024 1:35:23 PM By | Barbara DuBois | 0 Comments | Community mental health winter
Let’s be real. Winter is hard in Alaska. It may pose opportunities to do sports outside that we otherwise would not do such as skating, hockey, snowboarding, skiing, cross country skiing, skate skiing, but it is still hard. The ice, the cold, the darkness, the sense of being boxed in-otherwise known as cabin fever, the feeling of isolation all means we need to try harder to do what we need to do to stay happy and healthy.

Originally from a village in Western Alaska, she was no stranger to grief, and it showed in her compassion toward me. I had just come from across town, where I was collecting my son’s belongings at the place he had been staying. Two days after his death, his landlord called to say we owed them $1500. I didn’t know he was behind on rent. Read full article
