#AskShannon what to do about seasonal depression
Today's question comes from Tammy:
"I'm really confused... I thought I was in a depression, and then with the recent time change, I'm starting to feel much better. Is it possible that the time change could make that big of an impact in Florida? Are there different kinds of depression?"
SAD, seasonal affective disorder, is a sub-type of major depression that tends to happen in the winter months because of the drop in serotonin and melatonin.
The cures would have to do with light therapy, medication or psychotherapy.
