I never knew SAD was a real disorder. I always feel cold, sad, depressed in the winter no matter what I do.

Sounds like this could be an interesting read, so I will look at it.  Thank you for sharing.

Kindness, honesty, and sincerity are worthy traits.  Accepting yourself as the woman you are is very liberating.

The study has a sample size of 175.  It did not say if green eyes were in the sample or if green eyes were considered to be light colored eyes or dark colored eyes in their study.  Maybe either category, depending on the shade of green?

It was interesting to read.

SAD is very real, and it can be a very real drag.

I can speak from the experience of having a SAD-like manifestation of my bipolar, which is that I am brutally affected by the sun at solstices and equinoxes. The winter solstice makes be blue, the summer solstice gets me high, and the equinoxes, with the amount of daylight sunlight changing so rapidly, leave me feeling agitated and unsettled for three weeks prior and post. Meh. Bipolar. You never know which wacky symptoms you'll draw from the grab bag.

I know plenty of folks from my other support groups who don't manifest bipolar but who do get hit with SAD. It's awfully hard to medicate, too, because by the time the meds have kicked in, the worst of it is typically over anyway. Some people get relief from light boxes, some from diet and exercise, some from ice cream or Pink Floyd. You never know.

No matter what you do, it's best you recognize it and see if you can't do something about it rather than to refuse to admit it and/or simply try to gut it out.

Good Luck.

BTW - my eyes used to be mostly green, and that's what everyone remembers them as, but since I've come clean with myself, everyone says they've turned grey. That's another clue to my chosen name.  ;)

SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) is real, but I seriously doubt that eye color has much if anything to do with it
The main things to remember in life are Love, Kindness, Understanding and Respect - Always make forward progress

My doctor prescribed a "SAD LIGHT" which is simply a light that emits the sun's range of colors.   The idea is to have one going everyday shining on you.  You don't stare into it.   It might be silly sounded but it really seems to work for me and helps with the winter time blues.   Which the further north you go the more blues you get if your dealing with seasonal depression.  I can't quite imagine being a lot further north where the days just stop happening and its dark 24/7.   Its close enough to that for me already!

BTW I have brown eyes for what every thats worth.
