Man, I dont know why, but the winter blues have hit hard today. I didn't even drink at the superbowl party. Is it the cold, the fact that it is the end of football for the year, the economy bs or all of the above? Anyone else feeling rather melencholy today?

Just do what I do when you are feeling a little blue.

Snort a couple lines of coke and you will feel right as rain!

This happens to me as well. I hate the winter, and usually get lazy and depressed. I'm the complete opposite in the summer. I've never taken anything for it, just dealt with it.

I can't wait for spring...

Seasonal affective disorder (SAD), also known as winter depression or winter blues, is a mood disorder (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mood_disorder) in which people who have normal mental health throughout most of the year experience depressive (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Depression_%28mood%29) symptoms in the winter or, less frequently, in the summer,<sup class="reference" id="cite_ref-0">[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seasonal_affective_disorder#cite_note-0)</sup> repeatedly, year after year. The US National Library of Medicine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Library_of_Medicine) notes that "some people experience a serious mood change when the seasons change. They may sleep too much, have little energy, and crave sweets and starchy foods. They may also feel depressed. Though symptoms can be severe, they usually clear up."<sup class="reference" id="cite_ref-1">[2] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seasonal_affective_disorder#cite_note-1)</sup> The condition in the summer is often referred to as Reverse Seasonal Affective Disorder, and can also include heightened anxiety (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anxiety).<sup class="reference" id="cite_ref-mayoclinic.com_2-0">[3] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seasonal_affective_disorder#cite_note-mayoclinic.com-2)</sup>
There are many different treatments for classic (winter-based) seasonal affective disorder, including light therapies with bright lights, anti-depression medication, ionized-air administration (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_ionizer),<sup class="reference" id="cite_ref-Terman_3-0">[4] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seasonal_affective_disorder#cite_note-Terman-3)</sup> cognitive-behavioral therapy, and carefully timed supplementation of the hormone melatonin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melatonin).
