Vacation to someplace warm and sunny to treat my SAD? Yes, please! Sign me up! Will insurance cover that? ;-)
Do you find yourself more down in the winter months? Is it harder to get motivated when the hours of daylight lessen? Do you feel more tired than usual during the winter months? Do you feel more irritable?
Individuals with affective disorders such as Bipolar Disorder and Depression have a higher likelihood of developing SAD. I read that as many as 20% of individuals with SAD have Bipolar Disorder. The winter blues that you may be used to getting every year could be more than just winter blues! You should talk to your doctor if you feel like the winter months bring you down!
