Re: 10.000 lux of Light (light craving)

I'm not sure if I have SAD. I just think it's too dim. I just miss the sun.

Another one went regularly to the tanning salon to get over her winter depression.
Does a tanning lamp help with SAD?

The doctor should write you a prescription and normally they tell you which ones they recommend - your health insurance should cover it (depending on whether you've already paid off your annual Franchise, of course). Until you get the lamp, try and get outside at lunchtime, I know it's freezing but even on a cloudy day, there are sufficient Lux out there to make a difference.
It hasn't occurred to me to see a doctor about it. I'm not sure I have anything. What are the symptoms of SAD? Perhaps I should memorize them before I see a doctor.
