SAD is a type of winter depression that affects an estimated half a million people every winter between September and April; in particular during December, January and February.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seasonal_affective_disorder

I find myself under heavy influence from SAD, I'm so dead tired of the winter. All I want is summer, warmth, grass to live, the sun...

So, my questions for you, my fellow Crollers:

- Do you suffer from it? Or know someone that does?
- How do you or that person deal with it?

~ If you want to discuss physical disorders in general I suggest going to this thread instead:

Sigh where I live it looks like that every day almost haha....they say to use heat lamps or go tanning and have flower and fruity candles in your house, so when you smell them they remind you of summer....

No, people probably get depressed around those times because of the holidays.

LOL Depressed because its winter. Thats kinda sad. I get sleepy and I tend to be a bit lazier but other than that nothing really changes. I enjoy the winter so much more than the summer. The heat and humidity is annoying.

Also the pictures look the same.

I think you too would be depressed if winter lasted about 8 months a year.


I love the darkness that comes with winter, but I am dead tired of the cold, the snow, the days when it rains so that the combination of snow and rain makes it impossible to avoid getting wet >_<

Gief summer -_-

Last time I was out of the place I live, was... 12 years ago. /cry

yes actually I have 2 friends (they're siblings) and well one of them has it and both her parents. Apparently there is a special lamp they sell, that you connect it and if you stand next to it for 10mins it should help counter "SAD" and well it supposedly helps since it emits a special type of ray or such. Further details shall be uploaded once I ask them more about it.

edit: I currently live in Minnesota? Where do you live? cause the winter up here well lets just say its BAD...

Northern Norway, bloody summer in southern Norway >_<

I've seen those lamps, I know someone who bought one, but I've never personally had the chance to test 'em out. Currently I just close the curtains and pretend it's summer <.<

To snottyenglishgirl : Think I'll start taking one hour long walks each day, could be a real booster to my mood

if you suffer from SAD you need to get a good 30-60 minutes a day of daylight NOT viewed through glass or glasses, windows etc to help correct some of the chemical imbalances that cause it. you need the chemicals that are produced by the body when daylight hits the retina.

you also need to sleep without any nightlight on in order to keep your brain recognizing night from day more and helping it to correct its imbalance as much as possible

theres a lot to be gained from sleeping in the dark and using one of those dawn simulating light boxes/alarms. these simulate a natural dawn which triggers chemicals to be made in your brain and body which help reduce feelings of depression in SAD sufferers.

EDIT: yes,long walks are a very good idea, because you'll get the daylight AND you'll produce the happy exercise chemicals too.

No I actually suffer from the reverse of that: reverse seasonal affective disorder (RSAD). I get really tired and depressed during the summer.

What is it that you don't like with the summer? Or rather, get tired of?

I can't stand the heat, and usually summer to me is rather slow-moving/dull which bothers me, and the days get longer/nights get shorter which tends to be a problem for me/is annoying because I'm a night-owl. It's a combination of a lot of things.
