Thoughful Tuesday – Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)

Anyone else suffer from not getting what you want done or lacking the motivation to try and get anything done?  I always figured I was simply lazy.  Turns out during the winter I can claim “SAD.”SAD

In a nutshell it’s a type of depressions that occurs during the part of the year with the least amount of sunlight – usually winter ,at least in my hemisphere.  Do I really I have it?  I don’t know.  I find it funny though that we have a name for everything these days.  What I find entertaining about this disorder is that one suggested treatment is to make your environment sunnier and brighter – right okay.  So who is going to pay me to write in the South of France or the Polynesian Islands.  Okay – sure, I will settle for Hawaii too.

So how about you?  Do you suffer from “SAD” or have you come across some interesting disorders that make you go, “What?”
