Yeah, sounds like hot flashes to me. Mine were similar; felt like someone turned an internal furnace on. My boyfriend coud even feel them if we were cuddling!

Exactly. And I think I am having hot flashes? I have never had them so I dont know. I will be laying in bed and all the sudden my body feels like I am on fire. My face feels like a furnace then it goes away after 10 mins or so.
Glad I found this team. I need support to get through this.

You dont have to like me. Thats my job.

Kelly- my 16 yo daughter also shows symptoms of SAD. Her psychiatrist recommended the light box for her. At first she thought it was stupid to sit in front of but after about 3 days she didn't have to be reminded to do it any more. If you can get a box and get your daughter to sit in front of it while she eats breakfast for a couple of days I don't think she'll fight it or feel coerced into doing it.

Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorius triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat. -Theodore Roosevelt

Ah, Karyn. Welcome to the team. I know it sucks; you can't figure out where your motivation and energy disappeared to, right?

Welcome to the team, Lora. Where in upstate NY are you? When I was a kid, we lived in the Albany area, and N. Tonawanda, and N. Syracuse.

Hi
My name is Lora and I am prior military. I have been up and down and now I am about 8-10 pounds from my goal (have been for a while now but last year I was about 4 to 5 pounds lighter than I am now) but I am 45 so the belly is what is killing me! I have a disintegrating spine so finding the right workouts and team may be a little tricky.
Maybe along the way I can find out a little more of who I am.
I need help and motivation. I live in upstate NY so we are getting snow now and it makes it hard for me to want to get out and walk, with the slush and ice.
My boyfriend and I will be hopefully moving into a house in about 2 to 3 weeks so that will help shape me up some I hope!
Canít wait to get to know everyone and get into better shape.

Welcome to the team, Kelly. Has your daughter been checked for low levels of Vitamin D? Sometimes that contributes. Getting her outside for as much sunshine as you can during the day helps, as does getting a lightbox if you can afford it. And let her know that she's not crazy and you know it's not her fault - believe me, none of us are this way on purpose!

Hi all! I myself do not suffer from SAD, but my teenage daughter does. I hope that I can glean some tips here to help her through this time of year. We've had a much better go of it so far because she has been heavily involved in marching band which keeps her outside for several hours each day, but I am dreading when the season is over. Any tips or suggestions? She isn't a kid who likes to be "pushed" into doing something....

Thanks!
