S.A.D.

 “Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.” –Robert Louis Stevenson


I am going to be honest in that I am not familiar with S.A.D.{Seasonal Affective Disorder}. However, it is my understanding that it usually will show it’s head in seasons like winter. With the onset of winter coming I thought about this when I woke up this morning.


Here is how The Mayo Clinic speaks about S.A.D.:

Overview

Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that’s related to changes in seasons — SAD begins and ends at about the same times every year. If you’re like most people with SAD, your symptoms start in the fall and continue into the winter months, sapping your energy and making you feel moody. Less often, SAD causes depression in the spring or early summer.

Treatment for SAD may include light therapy (phototherapy), medications and psychotherapy.

Don’t brush off that yearly feeling as simply a case of the “winter blues” or a seasonal funk that you have to tough out on your own. Take steps to keep your mood and motivation steady throughout the year.


So dear reader I truly hope that this helps your understanding about S.A.D.{Seasonal Affective Disorder. There are plenty of sites that can give you a deeper understanding of this disorder.

    I’ve often wondered if everyone feels some level of it, because of the loss of freedom and sunlight the winter brings.

      They probably do Chelsea. I sometimes think I do. Winters here can be so long. Dark around 5 at night. Too cold to take a walk.
      So, yes probably everyone does suffer a bit with it.

    Recurrent Election Disorder where I rant and rave; never answer any question; and live in a world of narcissistic untruths!
