We both have insecurities and trust issues due to past relationships...

As the first day of Winter draws closer, you may find yourself feeling more down than usual, or perhaps you’re more anxious. Depression and anxiety are closely linked—so much so that seasonal anxiety disorders may be lumped in or considered the same as seasonal depression disorders, depending on who you ask. Now, with the COVID-19 pandemic at large, seasonal depression has become even worse.
What is seasonal anxiety and depression?
Seasonal anxiety is often a part of a seasonal depression disorder called seasonal affective disorder. This phenomenon is recognized as a legitimate diagnosis by medical professionals, something which often begins in Fall or Winter and is characterized by feeling down or more nervous or anxious than usual.
While rare, some individuals may also experience negative mood shifts each year during Spring and Summer.
According to research published by the University of Groningen in the Netherlands, up to 10% of the population may struggle with this sad seasonal depression.
Symptoms of seasonal affective disorder (ironically abbreviated as SAD) may include:
- Low energy;
- Sleeping too much or too little;
- Gaining or losing weight;
- Feeling down nearly every day;
- No longer enjoying your favorite activities;
- Constant exhaustion or weariness;
- Feelings of hopelessness, guilt, or even suicidal thoughts.
Also, it’s important to note that, while seasonal depression symptoms and signs of major depressive disorder are largely similar, these two are not the same! Major depressive disorder (which you may have heard called MDD, major depression, or just depression) occurs year-round.
Why does it happen?
The jury is still out when it comes to an exact cause of SAD, but we do know a few factors that make it more likely to experience some form of SAD during your lifetime.
For example, women are much more likely to experience SAD than men. Genetics may also play a factor, and people with preexisting mental health concerns such as depression or bipolar disorder have a higher chance of experiencing SAD. Finally, living further from the equator where days are shorter and the sunlight is scarcer can cause SAD to become more prevalent.
