I'm with you, Pam. Not only can't stand the winters, but get impatient with those who say they enjoy the changing seasons. Lord love a duck.

I had SAD before it had a name when I lived up north as a kid. I can't stand the short winters in Texas, let alone the northern ordeal. Must have sun and warmth. Still hate the cold, always will I expect. I still have to
fight the hibernation reflex.

That's fascinating, Barb!  It's about the same way here.
I will look forward to more light in the afternoon by the
end of the year.  I don't mind dark mornings so much.
I am an early riser, but like to make a slow start with a
cup of tea, book or crossword puzzle, cat in my lap,
etc. for the first half-hour or so.  Chet, on the other hand,
just hates to get up early.  How I got him off to the
commuter train to the city for 30-odd years, I'll never
know. Now I try to stay in bed for an extra half-hour
just not to disturb him, but I still need to get up by
6:00 or soon after if my day is going to work out right.

At least we can tell ourselves If winter comes...

Folks, I don't know if I actually have SAD but sure dislike the dark
afternoons in winter, and the shorter days. I discovered a curious factoid
a few years ago.  The time of sunsets and sunrises is not symmetrical
the solstice/our clock system. For instance, at my latitude, the sun sets earliest in the period Dec 5 - Dec 10. After that the sun sets later and
Christmas I can usually see the difference. The sun continues to rise
thru the first 2 weeks of January, when the mornings also start getting
longer.  Knowing the facts about the afternoon inexplicably raises my
spirits somewhat!  Check it out!
I also have a countdown set up on my computer of how many days till we go
back on daylight savings time. !!
