There probably is no distinct line where "normal" autumn blues end and SAD begins. I think the most important thing is the intensity of your symptoms, how much it interferes with your living, etc. You describe it as difficult. You might want to try out light therapy (talk to your pdoc first). Some of the light box companies have money-back guarantees--ie, use it for a month and if it doesn't help you, you can return it. Info on SAD, etc. at "tips" (link at top of babble page).

I also have a SAD component to my depression --this time of year I get sluggish, sleepy, have difficulty getting up in the morning. I have been using a light box for about a month and it is helping.
