My step-son and I both get SAD every winter. He gets it particularly bad. Next winter we're getting lights, or we're moving back south where there's sun all year round...

I replaced the light in my bedroom with a "daylight" compact fluorescent bulb from Home Depot and put it on a timer. It's a LOT easier to get up in the morning now.

No kidding! Now the MD's will have to get a procedure code, so they can soak us all with "light therapy" bills. Common sense is all too uncommon!

Symptoms can start to diminish within weeks.
If you start in November, symptoms diminish after 16 weeks of treatment. If you wait until February, symptoms diminish after only 4 weeks of treatment.

Light therapy usually involves sitting in front of white fluorescent lights with eyes open but not looking directly at the light source. Treatment time varies from 15 minutes to 90 minutes a day.
Ya, whatever. Reminds me of the rubes that spend perfectly good money to sit in a tanning booth. Try getting outside sometimes people.

It is sooo gray in the winters in NYC, it was killing me. My light box has increased my quality of life tremendously. I can't imagine life without it.
