I've always been a winter person. I love a good snowfall, I crave being snuggly warm in a blanket with a steaming cup o' chocolate, and I adore running around in the snow with my nephews. However, the past week of winter has got me wondering whether or not I suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D.) Read below:
Seasonal affective disorder (SAD), also known as winter depression, is an affective, or mood, disorder. Most SAD sufferers experience normal mental health throughout most of the year, but experience depressive symptoms in the winter or summer. The condition in the summer is often referred to as Reverse Seasonal Affective Disorder.
It's a blah feeling. This week especially I've been feelin' it. We've had extra dreary days. Not fun. Plus, I'm ALWAYS cold!! I'm actually at work right now with a blanket draped over me. Once I get home, I'm home to stay. There's almost no way to get me out of my little cave - because I'm wrapped up in the blanket(heaven itself)XanGo gave us all for x-mas (it is my saving grace this winter). I need some warmth! Suggestions, por favor.
Is anyone else feeling this way this winter, or is it just me?
