I don't think "Reverse SAD" is an actual diagnosis, but there's enough people out there who are negatively impacted by Spring/Summer for it to be recognized as a problem. I have no idea what could help with it though - blackout curtains to make longer nights?
Blame it on me, but know that I won't regret one iota.

Had to laugh at this post. It IS in your head, for sure.

In my opinion (and through experience), it's all about the hours of sunlight growing (late December to June) and the sunlight hours shrinking (June to December).

People with SAD don't adapt very well to these changes.

Simple as that.

This nonsense "disorder" is a scapegoat for people who want to find an excuse for why they don't feel good. Happiness comes on a snowy day, on a rainy day, on a foggy day, the weather doesn't control your emotions.


SAD is not in people's heads. It's not fake or made up. I have a wonderful life... couldn't ask for a better life and this just gobsmacked me out of the blue. No way would I make this SAD crap up. I don't have time for that kind of game. SAD is very real. Unless you have experienced it, you wouldn't have a clue. In Sweden they have Light Rooms to treat people with seasonal depression. The US Air Force base in Alaska has a light room to treat airmen with SAD. I seriously doubt any of them would make this up. Why are you on this board if you haven't experienced it and think it's fake?

I'm actually going to lock this thread. I don't find it at all appropriate for the forum, as this is a peer support forum, and this isn't helping anyone.
