Seasonal depression, also called “Seasonal Affective Disorder” SAD is a kind of depression. It general start at the same time every year, and last the all season. For some people, it’s fall until winter, for other it is spring and summer (more rare but happens in country with rainy season).

But I have to tell you something important too… When a depression come every year at the same date, it can have another kind of meaning. A past memories, an unresolved issue that is calling your attention. This memories can be related to an event that is stored in your body. Or even a transgenerational memory.
