Seasonal Affective Disorder--increasingly known as SAD, appropriately--is a mood disorder that affects sufferers seasonally. Symptoms generally begin in the fall and ease in the spring. More information can be found here:

If you think that you or a loved one may suffer from SAD, please do seek out counseling/therapy. Talk therapy with a counselor that you trust will usually help mood symptoms of depression and also of anxiety to lessen. You may also find that moderate physical activity, even walking, will help symptoms to improve.
