One in twenty of us suffer from SAD (seasonal affective disorder) and it can really affect our everyday lives. It leaves us feeling miserable, tired, lethargic, sleep can be affected as can appeitit and sex drive, and it affects women more than men it seems. It is fundamentally a lack of exposure to light, and therfore affects us more in the winter months. If you have other worries like work, relationships, or financial worries this can make it more likely. It leaves you feeling very low and in some cases depressed.
How do we treat this condition?, Counselling a talking therapy can help a lot, talking about the problems it brings, can be very therapeutic, as can exercise and a good balanced diet, and try to get out during daylight hours to boost your mood. A light box can help also.
