Seasonal Depression

Seasonal Depression

During the darker, colder, cloudier winter months, many people suffer from seasonal depression. My question is during these months when the sun does finally come out and shine, how do you take advantage of it? Does it change your mood for the day? Do you seem happier?

I suffer from SAD as well as pervasive deep depression and anxiety and I use a SAD lamp during the darker winter months as well as counseling and a group of medication. The medicine that works for me is Pristiq and. Ability. I had tried every depression medication out there. When the sun does return I balcony garden and expose myself to the sun plus love sitting out in the sun.

This is going to sound a little strange, but living in The Valley of the Sun (Arizona), I sometimes get so tired seeing the sun. I love the occasional cloudy day.
Can’t wait for the Monsoon season to start. I love thunderstorms, if we get any.
Enjoy.
