i think i have been suffering from s.a.d now for three years, or at least i think i have.
i have all the symptoms of s.a.d, and these seem to be worse during the bleak winter months. but, i do suffer these symptoms most of the year round.
my symptoms include...fatigue, waking up feeling that i havent slept, over eating, craving sweets and bread (not at the same time), i get upset for no reason, i have 1 maybe 2 days if i am lucky when i feel normal, my moods can change by the minute, i can go from feeling that life aint worth it to being hypo in a matter of 30 mins, as well as list as long as my arm.
my doctor has now told me that i just have to get on with it and has not been at helpful with giving me any support. i feel trapped in a no win situation.
i want to buy a light box, but i am not sure if it would be worth it if i have clinical depression.
for all the information on the net i cant seem to find anything that says to me (a) i have s.a.d (b) i have clinical depression.
and with my doctor being usless, this still leaves me in limbo not knowing either way what it is a am suffering from.
my wife is at the end of wits with me, and is putting pressure on our marriage. i nearly lashed out at my 8 yr old son for no apparent reason. it is also affecting my work as i work in a very customer based enviroment, and if i am having a bad day i dont want to talk to anyone.
can anyone give me some help?
