Seasonal Affective Disorder typically sets in around late fall and early winter. It impacts over 10 million people and women are four times more likely to develop it than men. (And we usually watch more true crime so maybe tread lightly with us, just saying.)
The silver lining to this very-not-funny SAD annual serotonin drought is that it impacts so many of us that we all have the tendency to make funny tweets about it to cope…
If you look into the sky long enough during winter, you can literally feel seasonal depression slap you across the face.

But seriously, if you are struggling with SAD, talk to a healthcare provider or mental health professional. There is a series of treatment options available aside from funny tweets (which I also recommend).
If you or a loved one has suicidal thoughts, call 911 or call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, at (800) 273-8255. This national network of local crisis centers provides free, confidential emotional support to people in suicidal crisis or emotional distress. It’s available 24/7.
