Are you tired of winter? Does the prospect of more days (or weeks) of gray, dreary skies have you increasingly down and out physically and mentally? If so, you're not alone.
Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that's related to changes in seasons. If you're like most people with SAD, your symptoms start in the fall and continue into the winter months, sapping your energy.
Signs and symptoms of SAD may include:
• Feeling depressed nearly every day
• Losing interest in activities
• Having low energy
• Having problems sleeping
• Experiencing changes in your appetite or weight
• Feeling hopeless, worthless or guilty
Don't brush off that yearly feeling as simply a case of the "winter blues" or a seasonal funk that you have to tough out on your own. While it's normal to have a day in which you feel down, if it continues for days at a time and you can't get motivated to do activities you normally enjoy, come see us. Maybe a Vitamin B12 shot would help, or an increase in Vitamin D in your diet. Call us or stop by our new office at 125 W. Walnut St. in Ogden. We can help.
Stay healthy, stay well, friends. We're here for you.
