“When it happens, you feel like you're alone, and you feel like it's only you, and you're in your bubble, and I wish I had someone at that time who could just pull me aside and say, "It's going to be OK. You have to hold onto that fundamental quality of faith. Have faith that on the other side of your pain, there's going to be something good.” —Dwayne Johnson, known for his brawn and muscle as The Rock
Recovering addicts may be more susceptible to winter depression. Here’s how to get back into the light.
Light therapy, generally with a specially designed lamp giving off light that mimics the full spectrum and intensity of sunlight.
Bupropion (trade name Wellbutrin) has been approved by the FDA to treat seasonal major depressive episodes, but the proper medication for any individual case should be determined in consultation with a physician.
Cognitive behavioral therapy, a pragmatic interactive therapy that has the goal of changing specific behaviors, can reverse some of the depressive thoughts and feelings.
If you feel yourself slipping into depression, contact your physician immediately to stave off the threat of relapse.
