Having been a caregiver for 10 years, the stress is killing me. Lots of health issues popping up.
Depression being the worst because it harms everyone around me...hubby gets the brunt. I am on meds.
I have SAD........Seasonal Associated Disorder....since my teen years.
Live in the gray dreary mid west...Indiana
On Dr. Oz he talked about "light therapy"
Got on amazon....ordered the most popular, not most expensive unit for $80.00 also has an ion thing.
It is AMAZING. My mood has swung back to like I'm free in the warm spring weather. It sits by my laptop on desk, where I spend most of the day since I am home bound with taking care of mom. If I breaks I will immediately order another and will never be without. They say use for 30 minutes a day...i'm addicted. I have it on several times a day for an hour or so (safe). THe light ion smell reminds you of a warm summer day.
This will get me through winter....I even spend most of summer inside, because of depression. My husband is amazed. Hope this can help someone. I wont give the brand but it sits up so convenient for on desk. about 20" high, 11" wide (ust guessing, not measuring - its white and like I said 80is dollars.
