Episode #16Dr. Gregory Jantz Discusses Seasonal Affective Disorder
Have you been asking yourself questions like “I feel sad for no reason?” or “Why am I so tired all the time?”
Have these questions started popping up alongside a sudden change in the weather?
If you said “yes” to any of the above, a condition known as seasonal affective disorder (or SAD for short) could be the culprit.
Also known as seasonal depression or the “winter blues,” seasonal affective disorder is a unique form of depression. It typically begins and ends around the same time each year and, as the name suggests, is related to seasonal changes.
If you struggle with seasonal affective disorder, you probably notice that your symptoms begin in the fall and last through winter, getting better when the weather starts to warm up and the days start to lengthen once again.
In about 10 percent of people with seasonal affective disorder, symptoms occur instead during the spring and summer, then get better in the fall and winter.
