How SAD am I?

Apparently, I am NOT dying of a brain tumor and Wendigo is NOT suicidal and depressed. We are just SAD!
Actually, is there anyone out there who does not suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder?  I bet five bucks (Indian), that you have more than half the symptoms:

Sleep problems: Usually desire to oversleep and difficulty staying awake but, in some cases, disturbed sleep and early morning wakening
Lethargy: Feeling of fatigue and inability to carry out normal routine
Overeating: Craving for carbohydrates and sweet foods, usually resulting in weight gain.
Depression: Feelings of misery, guilt and loss of self-esteem, sometimes hopelessness and despair, sometimes apathy and loss of feelings
Social problems: Irritability and desire to avoid social contact
Anxiety: Tension and inability to tolerate stress
Loss of libido Decreased interest in sex and physical contact
Mood changes In some sufferers, extremes of mood and short periods of hypomania (overactivity) in spring and autumn.

This establishment is making megabucks out of our SADness. The rascals. No more money for them. (Have you tried their cookies, by the way? Drooooooool)
