Are you S.A.D. today?
Seasonal Affective Disorder
Seasonal Affective disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that's related to changes in seasons — SAD begins and ends at about the same time every year.
If you're like most affected people with SAD, your symptoms start in the fall and continue into the winter months, sapping your energy and making you feel moody.

So - Are you SAD - today?

I lived in Michigan growing up and remember many SAD days when the weather was cloudy, cold and depressing. Definitely affected my mood and I remember many depressed moments. Then moved to Southern California and lived there for many years and felt very positive and energetic, happy. Currently live in Texas but told my wife (who is from Michigan) I will only live in southern, warm and sunny states. With all the current cold weather nationwide, SAD is definitely a consideration that needs to be understood and dealt with.
