I have SAD

I have Seasonal Affective Disorder [winter depression] and I'm scared to seek help. I haven't had any suicidal thoughts[i think] but I do think about death alot during the winter months, and I have tried to find a way to go into a coma, just until it was all over.[I guess that does count as suicidal] I don't know who to trust, because those who I have sought for help have either been judgemental, or haven't understood and said predictable things like "Leave it in God's hands" or "You're too sensitive." I know myself, I know when something is out of place, slitting my wrists and trying to go into a coma is not me being just sad. But I have no idea what to do.

  • Dont listen to people who dont beleive in it. This is a true disorder and many of us Northwest dwellers have it because of the lack of vitamin D in the environment. I suffer from it but coupled with family depression i have been medicated since 15 years old. Talk to your doctor and find a anti-anxiety medication because this is no laughing matter. If you are truely thinking about suicide, even just playing with the idea you need that help. Celexa, or Citolapram, are anti anxiety medication that i take.
