I didn't consider seasonal affective disorder to be a foregone conclusion after the move, but here it is. Exercising outside helps, but sometimes the weather prevents that from being a viable option in daylight.
But I'm not giving up. Last week, I began taking a daily Vitamin D supplement. A friend recommended this model of SAD light, and after a conversation with my dad about my lowered mood, he sent one as an early birthday gift.
Tomorrow morning I will embrace the blue glow of my new gadget, and hope for sunnier times inside my head.
