Hi all. Hoping wellness. I do know, for a fact, weather affects mood. I have seasonal affective disorder ( SAD). My down times are fall & winter. I take antidepressants all year, &, even when it's a dreary summer day, I use my full spectrum light. Very helpful!!! Had depression all my adult life. Sucks, but does not define me. I'm Peggy first. What are others thoughts? Thx.

@LizziB I have not tried Papaya leaf. The only thing in terms of diet I have found to help is to avoid alcohol and to decrease or avoid refined sugar. My platelets still drop but it seems not as much. My low platelets are due to auto-immune disease. My doctor however says there is nothing in terms of diet that helps. thanks, Lynette
