In northerly climes we are now approaching the time of year when people are most likely to feel depressed. This is because the lack of sunlight diminishes the quantity of Vitamin D we take in. If you find yourself seriously depressed in this season of long shadows, do not hesitate to see a doctor. Some people feel it is rather silly to see a doctor with a complaint like this, but I can assure you that Depression is not only a serious medical condition, but it is recognized as such. Your doctor will not think you foolish to approach him with it. While this is the time of year it is likeliest to strike, it can manifest itself at any time of the year.
Why, you may ask, am I giving out medical tips on a website such as this? Believe me, it will not become a common practice, but, in the case of this particular disorder, many people do not realize it is a disorder at all and, as we have hundreds of hits on this site, I felt it pertinent to throw in this piece of information, in case it helps anyone out there who might be suffering needlessly from its effects.
