Indeed, without reading the other posts, because I know what they are going to say about light therapy, I will profer my tid-bit.

I think you are describing classic SAD. My Pdoc says that those (like myself)who are sensitive to the hours of sunlight actually may begin this phasing as early as late July (which was news to me, but DID explain the horrible few weeks I had then!).

From my understanding of SAD, knowing that THAT is what is affecting your mood is winning half the battle, the other finding succesfull treatment. I can't say I have ever found the latter, as my Pdoc just wanted me to increase my Wellbutin to 400mg a day. I am pretty well set at 350mg, anything higher has untoward effects.

What meds are you currently taking, and have you discused this with your Pdoc? Although I have no experience with light therapy, the data suggests its efficacy. Look into it, don't just wish it away. SAD can be treated, if your Pdoc is of higher quality than what I have available in the small town I live in. Good luck, keep us posted.
