There is a disorder that many suffer and yet don't realize it... It is called
Seasonal Affective Disorder, or S.A.D.

This usually occurs in the winter months, when exposure to sunlight is limited.

Symptoms Include:
Regularly occurring symptoms of depression
(excessive eating and sleeping, weight gain) during the fall or winter months.
Full remission from depression occur in the spring and summer months.

Seasonal episodes substantially outnumber nonseasonal depression episodes.
a craving for sugary and/or starchy foods.

20 minutes of full sunlight a day OR 20 minutes in
front of a full spectrum light.

~ Shadows ~

Hold me till the morning
when the shadows disappear.
Chase away the sorrow,
wipe away my tears.

Open up the curtains,
flood the room with light,
help me find my way,
ease my lonely nights.

Shadows hide in waiting
until the sun goes down,
then they haunt my dreams
and take me to the ground.

I do not understand at all
these feelings and this pain,
I want to laugh and sing,
feel joyous once again.

But I feel the darkness falling,
it captures heart and soul,
so shelter me with love,
until I once again feel whole.
