It is a dark and snowy day here in the north

my mood is a match for the forces of nature.

Outside, it is cold, blowing.

I am in bed crying

the depression feels as deep and wet as the snow. 

Symptoms of SAD

According to Murphy, SAD can begin at any age. However, it is more likely to develop before the age of 21, and is twice as likely to develop in women than in men.

Many symptoms of SAD are similar to those associated with “ordinary” depression, such as anxiety, changes in mood and panic attacks.
