The long cold snowy winter, that seems to drag on forever with no signs of spring in sight, can give you a bad case of the blues. It's called Seasonal Affective Disorder, SAD for short, and is caused primarily by the lack of sunlight and a deficency of the vitamin D it provides. Cabin fever from behind cooped-up also doesn't help. So Richland County Mental Health and Recovery Services Director Joe Trolian suggests you try to get outside and stay active. While this reminder may seem hard to believe, the sunny warmth of spring will return soon and your blues will fade away. In the meantime, spend time with people whose company you enjoy, build a snowman or have a snowball fight, and try to enjoy the season.
