I have Schizoaffective Disorder, Depressive Type, and though things get worse during the night/the holidays I never was diagnosed with SAD. But my dad was and is on medication for it. He can be really grumpy during the winter season and HATES Daylight Savings. In the summer he's much happier. I think I can understand what he's going through to some extent because I know a lot about psychology and have depression myself, but I would like to know- what is about the winter that triggers your depression? Are any of you more depressed during the spring/summer and why? I know lack of light is a big part of the equation, but I'd like to know what other factors apply.
