    Same here! On sunny days now, it stays reasonably light until around 5.30pm.

    one of the few pluses of snow down for a while is it brightens up our very dark days re reflected light

    I have always considered myself as a bit of sun worshiper which might explain things..
    Getting out and about doesn't help , I work outside all year and feel the seasonal highs and lows, deep breaths and crack on. Anyone tells you owt else it's crap

    That's dead right. October to March there's too little UVB in daylight for any benefit.

    Got home from work at 07:15 this morning, went to bed and woke up at 16:30 to get back to work for a 12 hour shift. I haven't seen daylight for three days and won't until Wednesday.

    Try getting away on a holiday to Tenerife or something similar. We did it at this time last year and that boost was enough to to make winter seem a lot shorter.

    I went on Vit D supplements and that seemed to work. Could be placebo but it doesn't actually matter does it? Just like hi-fi really.

    SAD sufferer here too. A light box only gave me headaches. The Doc has prescribed Prozac for the last few years but I only take them from October through to early Spring. They have really helped, but may not be for everyone.

    I have no side effects and don't experience any problems when I stop taking them.

    I went to the off licence instead of the vet and they gave me a scrip for Guinness. Taken daily. Works so well I carried on taking it all year round.

    I understand what you are saying. have suffered with depression for years and from November on life gets harder. I exercise a lot and try to cycle 4 times a week. However, once the dark and cold hits it gets much harder (not getting any younger either) to motivate myself and it is 100% psychological. If I try to force myself to go out I start to get stomach gripes and feel slightly unwell. Bonkers.

    I have been a sad basta*d for yrs , according to my wife

    Joking apart , I hate winter but for me it co incides with the cows being housed and my work rate and ability to get away from it all ,being severly curtailed !

    D3 is great , lots of Vit C ,and occasionally I take Kalms or Passiflora to calm me down .

    Other than that , plenty of

    Good luck with it !!
