I have quite a few of these (not all), but I guess it comes back every year, and goes away around the same time...let me guess....SPRING?? Or, when the sun comes out. I guess it is the Melatonin you get from the sun that fixes this problem. See this picture below? Does it look familiar? I feel like this winter in Boise has been EXTRA gloomy. Dead grass, Dead trees....brown, muddy, cold, cloudy...and NO sun. I'm pretty sure I have S.A.D. I really need a "pick me up". C'Mon Spring! I'm ready.
