SADS

Hi all the old friends,   Been a while since I put in a few words. Have been keeping things under control by puting in a few words on Twitter.  Can express my anger at all the things that the politicians are doing.   OK for a while but it's that time of year again. Winter and the coldness ,brings on the seasonaly affective disorder..I know I must get out in the sun every day,but theres been no sun.. I know what I must do,but the cold seems to smother all of those must do activities.  All I want to do is cry and stay in bed...I will hang in there ,allways do...Just jotting a few lines to SANE helps.   Comiserations to every one in Vitoria who are in lock down... when we have all been vaccinated should be better.. Lots of love to all  ......jay2

Re: SADS

Sorry to hear that you get Seasonal Affective Disorder @jay2 and that there is no sun for you to sit in. Ever considered getting a light box? My Mum had one of those for her SAD. It's so difficult to get motivated to do anything at all when you feel like this. Be kind to yourself and take baby steps.

Re: SADS

Hi @jay2 , I have SAD too and am also in Melbourne where there has been no sun, and there's no sun in the 7 day forecast up ahead, either Smiley Sad I started taking a Vitamin D tablet on every day without sun a few years ago, and I think it makes a difference. I still really struggle on cloudy days though - it's amazing the huge difference the sunshine makes, to my mood and outlook and motivation. 

 

I feel for you, take care...
