From the Mayo clinic:"Seasonal affective disorder (also called SAD) is a type of depression that occurs at the same time every year [in Buffalo, NY.]. If you're like most
Treatment for seasonal affective disorder includes light therapy (phototherapy) [also known as blacked out home games], psychotherapy and medications [Labatt]. Don't brush off that yearly feeling as simply a case of the "winter blues" or a [football] seasonal funk that you have to tough out on your own [there are plenty of people just like you at the bar down the street]. Take steps to keep your mood and motivation steady throughout the year [watch college basketball or baseball or something not professionally represented in Buffalo]."
