Seasonal Affective Disorder

I think I have Seasonal Affective Disorder, aka, SAD (which is an acronym that annoys me because the fucker who came up with it was probably high fiving someone for being clever). I’ve never been clinically diagnosed but every year, like clock work, come January I become morose by evening, just wanting to lie in bed, read and be left alone. Last year I tried taking extra vitamin D which didn’t really do too much. People have been telling me about trying light therapy where you put a bright light (10,000lux) on your desk or wherever to increase your serotonin levels. So, this just came in today:

A verilux compact happy light.

This is not an endorsement because I literally just turned it on and placed it on my desk. I’ll give you an update in a week or two. So far the only thing it has done has made me feel like a moth. My wife’s response was, “That’s bright!!!” Yes. Yes it is.
