I’ve heard many clients ask if seasonal affective disorder is a thing. So, to answer that question, I am writing this post.
Seasonal affective disorder is a mental disorder that affects many people.
Disclosure: Personally, I have been affected by this disorder. I experienced postpartum depression after the birth of my oldest daughter. She was born in October and the winter for me was brutal. I had so much fear of the early nights because my depressive symptoms worsened throughout the winter months. I eventually joined a group and attended group therapy to help me through the transition.
