It's been a cold winter and the snowfall has set records all over Wisconsin. If its got you bummed the question is how much? Lisa Rohl, Director of Programs at Mental Health America of Wisconsin, says Seasonal Affective Disorder or SAD, is a mood disorder associated with depression and related to variations in sunlight.
Rohl says possible symptoms of SAD include anxiety, fatigue, oversleeping and overeating. The best way to treat the condition, Rohl suggests, is to get outside into the sun. If the cold temperatures are too much to bear, she recommends bright light therapy. If the symptoms continue for several weeks, Rohl suggests consulting your doctor.
