i have self-diagnosed SAD. seasonal affective disorder. when the days get shorter i feel sad.
daylight wasting time makes it darker one hour sooner. why oh why, i wail. so last year i refused.
i did not change my clocks. bad enough it gets dark at six, but five? hell no.
march to the beat of a different drummer, don't let the man get you down, etc etc.
also, when i get up i turn on the lights in every room. i know i know. it's environmentally unfriendly.
but by doing so i figure i keep several hundred empty plastic anti-depressant bottles over the course of my lifetime out of the landfill. it uses petroleum to make plastic, after all.
besides, anti-depressants can cause suicidal feelings. a side effect. hmm.
so how do you, my friends, cope with the time change, the blues, winter doldrums, the man? any hints or tips?
