What are the symptoms of seasonal affective disorder?
The symptoms may be similar to those of depression and may include: feeling sad; feeling anxious; having feelings of worthlessness, guilt or hopelessness; becoming easily irritated or angry; losing interest in activities that normally bring enjoyment; fatigue and lethargy; decreased interest in sex, and; weight changes. People with seasonal affective disorder are only affected by their symptoms during one season (usually winter or summer) and have no symptoms the rest of the year.
