StudlyScrewRite saidsmartmoney saidNo such thing as SAD. If you think you have SAD, you have too much money and not enough charity in your life. Send 5 thousand dollars to any friend in New Jersey or Staten Island right now and then spend the next week bragging about it on the internet and to your friends, you will get over your SADness right away.
Are you a psychologist?
No? Then what do you know about it?
Stop being flippant about things you know nothing about.
I was diagnosed with SAD almost 20 years ago. I used to use a light-box, but lost it in a move (it was destroyed) and found you could buy a full spectrum standard-base light bulb and get the same effect sitting under it while watching TV or reading. Less $$$ and not a big bulky box sitting around 90% of the time unused.
Also, from October thru March I go to a tanning bed (15 mins, 2 days a week) and it invigorates me along with the lamp.
Hope that helps!
As to your crushing depression, I sense something in addition to SAD you should seek professional help with, not on here or WebMD!
Lol, honestly i don't think i've ever gone near WebMD. I have a hypochondriac aunt and that's enough to keep me away from it. I had therapy for many, MANY years and I know I don't have clinical depression so no use medicating. I have things in my life that are depressing, its as simple as that. And until I do something about them they'll keep affecting me
