SAD in Winter
I haven't blogged in awhile. I have been having a really hard time this Winter. My Seasonal Anxiety Disorder seems worse this year. Maybe because of all the snow and bad weather we have had. I wish I could just lie around in bed all day. But, I do have to get up and do stuff and that is a good thing. My running helps. I also got one of those light boxes and that also helps. And of course the meds. I wish more people understood SAD. They think I am just grumpy in the Winter. Its more than that, I want to crawl up in in ball and cry. I am actually thinking of going back to the doc and seeing if there is anything else I can do. I am pretty good and putting up a front most of the time. People know I hate Winter, but they don't usually see how depressed I am. I am so tired of dealing with this every year. There has to be something more I can do to feel better, other than move to a warmer climate, which isn't an option. Please God help!
