Caution: Mets Fandom Can Cause Depression, Help is Available
Seasonal depression is a real thing and it's understandable in the winter months; it's cold, gray and dark before 5 p.m. But, a feeling of depression shouldn't be associated with the summer when daylight, vitamin D and warmth are prevalent. However, for Mets fans, there are post-Memorial Day doldrums that are now being clinically diagnosed as Seasonal Mets Depression.
Fear not, though Mets fans. There is free help available. Following that historically bad 25-4 loss in Washington, UMA Health CEO Dave Kerpen announced his licensed therapists would be offering free therapy sessions to self-identified Mets fans. The Mets are 46-64, 16 games out of first place in the NL East and might be remembered best this season for a pitcher contracting hand-foot-and-mouth disease and batting out of order.
