i know that there have been a few posts and people resurfacing because of the winter and light change/darkness. Does anyone else (minus the holiday insanity) find that they get more depressed at other times of the year? Late spring early summer have always been worse for me but the fall is usually one of my better times of year overall. Don't know why. Wondering if this is the case for anyone else?

I also like the lengthening days of fall. I guess I'm weird, but I like it when it turns dark late in the afternoon or early in the evening--just seems like a good time to curl up with a book or build a fire. I would also rather walk my dog in the dark, just don't have to think about running into anyone.

Summer relapses (1/10 cases of SAD) (known as ‘reverse SAD’).
