It sounds like the biggest amount of bullcrap ever.
Yet I'm utterly convinced I suffer from it.
I think I used to suffer from it but I don't anymore so maybe I never did
What I mean is that I think the title of the 'condition' is a loada rubbish. Calling it a 'disorder' is slightly over the top! Kinda sounds like it's been created to make people think there's something 'wrong' with them?! Whereas I don't think it's all that surprising or unusual. 'Winder blues' would suffice!
I'm definitely happier in October-December time, then January I feel miserable, usually right through to March/April time.
I don't like summer.
Radiation. Smog. Sweat.
I cower in the shadows praying for weather like we have now.
Isn't SAD supposed to be particularly prevalent among horses?
would be incredible. Incredible.
I do suffer from it. I am suffering from it now a bit.
Toned, tanned beautiful people all of a sudden exist. Everyone appears more radiant and beautiful. I like it when it's cold but sunny. So pretty. Wrapped up nice and warm.
that's what gets to me. And I hate being indoors/love being outside. But it's difficult to do that in comfort during autumn/winter.
I'd prefer to be indoors too ;)
...hibernation would solve the problem though. Being awake during winter just seems totally illogical.
I just don't relaly know how to change it.
or I'm bipolar
but I like to think I'm above the seasons
but I think I was just being miserable.
But it doesn't take a rocket scientist to work out that if it's cold, dark, and wet all the time you might start getting a bit down.
Chemically (This is just from what I remember) - sunlight helps stimulate the release of serotonin, a neurotransmitter linked to mood/behaviour regulation, low levels of this can lead to symptoms of depression.
and what constitutes SAD. Its not just feeling a bit sad, my Dad suffers from it and until he got a lightbox it was horrible. Hes not one to make a fuss but it really was clear that it was affecting him to a large extent.
