25. Seasonal Affective Disorder

This is the scenery outside my room window. Look at the sky, no sunshine at all. Mr. Sun is on long term holiday. Gloomy gloomy, sad weather.

Weather here is so depressing. The sky is gloomy, no sunshine throughout the day. This weather is making me sleepy.

In Malaysia -- 'Wah lao eh, the sun crazy one! So hot like mad, i am roasted! '

In Glasgow -- 'Wah lao eh no sunshine one! sien ah, makes me sleepy only. Depressing la this weather. '
Can you see the different? Eventually, weather causes disorder named as Seasonal Affective Disorder' What is that?

'SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) is a type of winter depression that affects people every Winter between September and April, in particular during December, January and February.
It is caused by a biochemical imbalance in the hypothalamus due to the shortening of daylight hours and the lack of sunlight in winter.
SAD is a seriously disabling illness, preventing them from functioning normally without continuous medical treatment.
For others, it is a mild but debilitating condition causing discomfort but not severe suffering. We call this subsyndromal SAD or 'winter blues.'
