Battling the Winter Blues: dealing with S.A.D

I have a lot of experience with Seasonal Affective Disorder----I used to live in Upstate NY, where seeing the sun between late October and about mid-April is a rare occurence (no, seriously---it's really gloomy up there!) I even used to use a special light every morning to help with it. I'm much better now that I live in NC, and of course, the bioidentical hormones and the handful of supplements (including Vitamin D) I take every day are very helpful. This article is important reading ----- especially for those of you who live in harsher climates in the Northern half of the country.
