Is it SAD (seasonal affective disorder) or depression?

 SAD symptoms can include:
  • Afternoon slumps with decreased energy and concentration
  • Carbohydrate cravings
  • Decreased interest in work or other activities
  • Depression that starts in fall or winter
  • Slow, sluggish, lethargic movement
  • Social withdrawal
  • Most people with the "winter blahs" or "cabin fever" do not have SAD.
See your primary care provider if you think you may be suffering from SAD or depression. If you do not have a primary care provider, call HealthLine. Registered nurses can assist you in finding one to meet your needs. 406-255-8400 or 1-800-252-1246.
