Re: "dark times"
Try to get some "me" time throughout your day, even if it's just an hours soak in a nice hot batch with candles and some nice oils, to help you relax, when hubby is about shut yourself away and call a friend family or just pick up a book. . . . . . .stress does nothing for this condition, so try to de-stress yourself.
Hope it works for you, it does for me.
