Re: OT: Everyone must be....

I too suffer mildly from SAD and thank goodness for my strong western and southern exposure up on my hill! I was interested to find out -- and it is probably true everywhere -- that the earliest sunset and latest sunrise are not symmetrical around the solstice. Here, the sun sets earliest about 12/12, and the sun rises latest about 1/12. I have always felt that I noticed the days getting longer (in the afternoon) around Christmas time and indeed this is the case. You-all may want to check out the times for your area -- amazing what a psychological lift knowing this has given me.

When I lived in NE PA, it was terrible. And being in the Wyoming Valley was
worse because it got dark earlier and light later than in the flatlands.
Hideous.  Lord only knows how those of you susceptible to SAD stand it up
there.  I had to get OUT.  It's not as bad down here, but it still rears
it's ugly little head.  Especially on gloomy days.  Today it's sunny and
80-something so much better today!

Me, too, Pam.  I really hate the short days, and the end of
daylight saving makes it worse.  It's already pitch dark here
at 5:00 PM, and days will get shorter for another month!
We once were offered a really good opportunity at a
business in Maine, but I made us turn it down because
I just couldn't face the longer nights.  The very many gloomy
days we've had this fall haven't helped a bit. I just keep my
head down and try to get from day to day - spring will come

bad bloody year.  and I always get a bad case of the cranks once the days
start getting short.  SAD is alive and well, even down South.
