And, to add, I once worked for a boss who for all indications had the summertime version of S.A. D. very, very bad ... he'd given me loads of hell ...

Come late March, the problem will be manageable ... that's why I didn't stockpile many bulbs.

People in my family who know my condition, know it well; and would be a LOT quicker to talk about (possible) meds, have never agreed that a light box was indicated. So, NO THANKS.

But, in my advanced age, had I been genuinely indicated of having a light box, I would have gotten much practices with THESE KINDS OF LIGHT BULBS!

You could ask your doctor about using a white light box. There are a variety of styles and prices. White light has long been a therapy for SAD and insomnia.

Also check out Mayo clinic.com SAD. They have a lot of info on SAD and it's treatment.

A light box could be greener, more effective and less expensive in the long run since it's inly one bulb.

If it's not a law in your state yet I don't think you have to worry too much about it. On a side note do you have anyone else who could help you with this since your building management won't? Sometimes Friends and family will. Good luck with everything though

My seasonal affective disorder is mild, unmedicated; and, actually, totally untreated ... but in my diabetic condition (S.A.D. had taken a back burner during the January onward, winter of 2013 for the first & only time EVER in my adult life, due to its sudden diagnosis, then) I cannot gracefully transition (living by my self with unresponsive building management do not help) to a CFL existence ... and I have lamps up the wazoo in a tiny apartment, so many that the Building Superintendent took notice (the candles, too, btw...)

Having a mild S.A.D. condition means I've never handled these dangerous light bulbs of any kind ...

So, I'm not much of a conservation-minded American [and, for that matter, I've even been practicing yoga frequently (the entire spectrum of, which includes honoring the Eart ... not just the exercise part) for years] ... but I've stockpiled very, very few of the safer, traditional light bulbs ..
