No longer feeling like there's a secret passage in my head directly back to my 14 year old inner teenager. This is both sad and a relief. It is sad because I no longer feel so passionate and magical. It is a relief because I was beset by "chopped-liver" and "no one understands me" feelings and those are receding (although since some of them are no doubt S.A.D.-caused, they might well not fade entirely until March).

I actually have a SAD light, but when I started using it at the autumn equinox, I got too wired on it and I couldn't sleep. Maybe I should go back to using it now that it's darker.

My sister goes to the tanning salon for her sun in the winter. I'm not into that. I'm not trying to find any new ways to get wrinkles ; ).

Well, I guess we can take comfort in the fact that the Solstice is only a few days off! Hurrah for the rebirth of the sun!

Hurrah!
Yeah, UV isn't very good for you...

I find that it makes a difference to me what time of day I use my light box. Morning is best for me (and that was the conclusion in the study I was in, too), but as long as I keep it only half on if I'm using it in the evening and shut it off by 9, I can usually get to sleep by midnight.

I was using mine for 1/2 hour in the morning.

Some people respond best when they use it in the afternoon. I'm going to try that at some point.
