Tis The Season of Beautiful Fall Colors, Pumpkin Spice and . . . Seasonal Affective Disorder

It’s that time of year again. Everyone is admiring the beautiful colored trees, carving pumpkins, getting out their sweater collection, and drinking pumpkin chai. But there is a darker side to this time of year for people who experience depression and other symptoms associated with the decrease in light in fall and winter. It often starts out as feeling a little more anxious, irritable, or tired. It can creep up slowly until suddenly it’s December and realize you are in the thick of it.
