It’s been so cold out there for so long that more New Yorkers are hitting the couch — in their shrinks’ offices.
“It’s like the never-ending winter,” Laura Young, a Midtown therapist, lamented to The Post on Tuesday.
“People are definitely having a lot of feelings about the long winter,’’ she said.
“They are just down, feeling lethargic. It’s hard for them to get motivated. They’re more disappointed by things, and it’s hard to get out of the house.
“People really seem to think that this year is particularly bad,” Young went on. “People definitely have this idea that the winter is never going to end.
“I try to tell people that days are getting longer. I try to be positive.
I don’t want to dismiss their feelings.”
A worker at the high-end gadget store Hammacher Schlemmer on East 57th Street said his shop recently sold out of its $99.95 “light therapy lamp” — for the second time this winter.
