Do You Have Seasonal Affective Disorder

Does the thought of shorter days and longer nights with the coming fall and winter months cause you to feel more down that you think you should? The changing seasons cause changes in the way we feel as well, but if the feelings linger and you have felt moody and unenergetic for more than a couple of days, you may be experiencing SAD or Seasonal Affective Disorder.
