“Tis the Season to be Jolly!”

SAD is a yearly pattern of depressed mood usually beginning in fall or winter and lasting until spring. Fall and winter SAD usually presents with excessive sleeping, overeating with a craving for carbohydrates, weight gain, and low energy. Fewer people may have a form of SAD that occurs in spring or early summer. This type is more likely to be associated with insomnia, low appetite, weight loss, and agitation or anxiety.
