Seasonal depression setting in already...
by Anonymous
October 4, 2012 at 12:17 AM

Here it is only October, and already I am feeling "the blues" setting in. I should be excited as I am getting married in 3 weeks, but he works out of town and is away, and doesn't seem to want to talk about it at all whenever we get a chance to talk on the phone. We're broke as heck, so we're just having a courthouse "wedding", I just had a tooth pulled yesterday, it's supposed to snow tonight and tomorrow ALREADY and everything just seems to be falling apart at once. On top of that, all I seem to want to do is sleep! I can't get on anti-depressants cuz I have no insurance, so if ya'all know of any natural over-the-counter suggestions that may help, I would really appreciate it. All I wanna do is cry when this should be the happiest time of my life. (I've never been married before and I'm almost 36).  I really hate feeling this way, and it's not good for my kids either to see me like this.

    I get it too, mine started about 2 weeks ago, its the light change.


    If you have a dr (or access to one) ask about SAD treatment. THe light boxes do help and as bad as it is..so do tanning booths. A minute or two a day and BOOM its at least managable


    *hug* and congrats on your marriage!

    ST JOHNS WORT helps with mild depression, Omega 3, Vitamin D and also iron also help with depression and low energy.  You should think about moving down to Florida--often sunny, no snow and I just went swimming with my daughters yesterday in our pool!  Mid to high 80s!  I like that its gets cooler these months since normally it would be in the 90s rather than the 80s.  It was a BEAUTIFUL day!

    Thanks! I actually believe I have some Niacin around somewhere here in my house. I'll have to find it and start taking it, and also some vitamin B from before. I had forgot about that! It's been about 3 years since I have been affected by this, so it kinda surprised me when I put it all together and recognized it for what it was.

    Yeah I forgot to mention B12 also helps with energy.  Check the dosage on Niacin because I think I saw on Doctor OZ that you can take too much of it.
