    Grew up in Northern CA. Seasons, SNOW, etc. and then when we got married, our first base was in Florida. I loved it. Warm, Sun, beach. After DH got out, we ended up following a job to Portland.
    A few years in, SAD became a thing for me.
    I switched to full spectrum light bulbs. This year I bought one of those tabletop ones. I am plugging it in this weekend.
    I want to go back to Florida. This year is BAD for SAD. Last year wasn't too bad. Rains started late. Sunshine thru Nov.
    This year, nope. Started raining at beg. of Oct. and hasn't stopped.
    I suggest at least getting a therapy light and using it. i got mine off craigslist for relatively cheap.
    I hear you! We spent five years before Oregon in Arizona. I was so happy to be moving to trees and water I'm missing the sun! The first couple of years were great, at least for us, not necessarily for the environment, but lately it's been all rain. And with my job and eldest's sports schedule, we aren't getting out to the beach and trails on the nice days like we use to. What's the use of HSing if you don't take beach days on a regular basis?

    I will try the full spectrum bulbs, too.

    I wonder if SAD isn't as bad for night owls as it is for day ppl? Or, maybe it's just that I live in Georgia and I hate the sun.

    I have heard good things about the light bulb therapy. My m-i-l uses them and she's in Western NY.
