> Hey Ritch,

> Yours actually sound similar to what I experience. Even with meds you experience this? Do meds do anything to help? Are you using the light box too? I just started that this year (nov. 15th! - your schedule) and it pulled me out of a depression I was falling into.

I've been mood charting since the early '80's. I've noticed the seasonal patterns throughout my teenage years, but the 3-week thing really kicked in when I was about 20 or so. No light box yet.. later this year I will make a point of it though. Even with meds... OH YES, the cycling "flattens" when I back off the antidepressants, but the 3week *frequency* doesn't change as much as the amplitude of the peaks and troughs. Basically, I can just take Depakote and clonazepam and greatly reduce the hypomania, but when the depressions hit, especially coincident with the seasonal pattern and OUCH... gotta do something! IOW, I can put up with a little tweaky cycling during a seasonal depressive episode and feel better on AD's. It would be really NICE to just use a light box and an antimanic during the wintertime thing..! I would like that.
