MEDICAL TERM OF THE WEEK: ARE YOU FEELING SAD?
There are lots of things that could be making you sad this autumn, but luckily for us here in the UAE, the weather is unlikely to be one of them. Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that recurs on a seasonal basis. For most people, symptoms start in the lead-up to the winter months, sapping energy and making them feel moody, irritable or helpless. While it’s normal to have some days when you feel down, seek help from a doctor if your symptoms persist.
