I had heard that, and it makes a lot of sense that these times would trigger it.
So you don't feel it to always be a seasonal factor?.
Glad to hear that the extra light helped people. Do you know if lightbulbs that have more blue in their light cast(to emulate daylight) help?
I just meant in general. Thanks for your input, too.
I want to hear more about this, Bosia. Can you expound a little more on this.
I used to live in Maine, so I understand what you mean.
Do you go to a warmer climate for the summer to help battle this in your instance?
Ouch! That would really hurt me, not being able to tromp around the lake making new discoveries. At least here in OK(USA), it generally won't rain the entire day.
So then, you completely discredit SAD as a depressive disorder?
it's my personal opinion on this topic and of course SAD is a depressive disorder
Clinical depression is most often caused by an imbalance in brain chemistry. So it is a psychological disorder with a physical root.
Borsia, will medication as well as counselling be successful in combating this, or is it not so simple as that?
Any really good shrink will tell you that it is a black art. If you are lucky meds alone can be the answer. For some therapy helps as well. For around 50% neither does much and therapy is all there is. It depends on how one reacts to meds.
