Seasonal depression setting in already...

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

Here it is only October, and already I am feeling "the blues" setting in. I should be excited as I am getting married in 3 weeks, but he works out of town and is away, and doesn't seem to want to talk about it at all whenever we get a chance to talk on the phone. We're broke as heck, so we're just having a courthouse "wedding", I just had a tooth pulled yesterday, it's supposed to snow tonight and tomorrow ALREADY and everything just seems to be falling apart at once. On top of that, all I seem to want to do is sleep! I can't get on anti-depressants cuz I have no insurance, so if ya'all know of any natural over-the-counter suggestions that may help, I would really appreciate it. All I wanna do is cry when this should be the happiest time of my life. (I've never been married before and I'm almost 36).  I really hate feeling this way, and it's not good for my kids either to see me like this.

ST JOHNS WORT helps with mild depression, Omega 3, Vitamin D and also iron also help with depression and low energy.  You should think about moving down to Florida--often sunny, no snow and I just went swimming with my daughters yesterday in our pool!  Mid to high 80s!  I like that its gets cooler these months since normally it would be in the 90s rather than the 80s.  It was a BEAUTIFUL day!


Thanks! I actually believe I have some Niacin around somewhere here in my house. I'll have to find it and start taking it, and also some vitamin B from before. I had forgot about that! It's been about 3 years since I have been affected by this, so it kinda surprised me when I put it all together and recognized it for what it was. 

Yeah I forgot to mention B12 also helps with energy.  Check the dosage on Niacin because I think I saw on Doctor OZ that you can take too much of it.

Thanks. I always check the dosage on stuff. I am not a complete "organic" mom, but I don't take pain pills or muscle relaxers of any kind and I always follow the directions when taking Tylenol, Ibuprofen, vitamins etc. just to be safe. :)

I call myself a vitamin-aholic.  I dont take any medicine generally either such as I load up on Vitamin C and zinc rather than take any cold medicine, some caffeine and a little sugar for a headache, etc.  I think medicine gives our immune system a crutch rather than letting it fight for itself.

One of the best and most effective solutions for seasonal depression is bright (or blue) light therapy. You may feel the results in no more than a week. You can see how it works in this article, hope it helps:

Snow already? Where do you live?
Have you tried your local health department?
