Seasonal Affective Disorder
Are you feeling like you have more than just the winter blues? Seasonal affective disorder, also known as SAD, is a form of depression that usually occurs in the fall and winter. SAD affects five percent of adults in the United Sates, and is more common in areas further north or south of the equator. Researchers believe SAD is linked to a chemical imbalance in the brain caused by the decrease in daylight.
Symptoms may include:
- Feeling depressed.
- Less pleasure in activities you enjoy.
- More cravings for carbohydrates.
- Feeling very tired, even with plenty of sleep.
- Feeling guilty or worthless.
- Trouble focusing.
- Thoughts of death or suicide.
