I am a happy person nearly all of the time, I am that kind of person that is always smiling and cheerful. But lately in these winter months I have been feeling quite down. I would never use the word depressed to describe myself. But in the winter months I feel in such a low mood.
I just tend to want to stay in bed all day, am constantly tired, don’t want to talk to anyone. And just feel as though I want to be alone locked in my room. I’ve googled this of course, trying not to scare myself. It’s known as seasonal Depressive Disorder (SAD). Which is exactly how I feel, bloody SAD! SAD is apparently due to lack of sun exposure. Check out the NHS website here to read more.
So, to try and pick myself up I have bought a pizza, gone downstairs sat on the sofa and watch a film. But I will try and get out the house this week and become more active. Hopefully then I will feel less SAD.
