  • ✪ Geri Jewell on getting cast on "Deadwood"


I'm here to talk about seasonal affective disorder up which essentially is the type of depression that occurs only during the winter months. So it's really the same as any other type of depression that we see that people have depressed mood, loss of energy trouble concentrating, sleeping a lot but rather occurring at anytime it tends to be correlated with the winter months especially when the amount of daylight is low. Technically it's called major depressive disorder with a seasonal specifier, meaning it's related to seasonal a time of the year but it's really just major depressive disorder like other types of depression that we see. It largely depends on the climate so in the US I believe the lowest rate is about a little under 2 percent in Florida and the highest rate is in New Hampshire and it's about 10 percent so it's very much related to the to the climate. We believe it may come from our evolutionary ancestors. It's sorta like hibernation response that exist. During the winter there was less food so having less activity means you need less calories so we sort of see it originates up from that, so clearly that's the main a factor. But if you think about how your behavior changes in the winter when you're in a cold climate other factors are responsible as well. So one thing is people get outside less, you know, in the house more there's less daylight to begin with and so clearly just from that they're going to get less sunlight. So one recommendation would be to try to change your schedule as little as possible even though you don't wanna walk around on such a cold day. It probably is important maybe more important than doing it the rest of the year. Another factor that we think happens is the loss of reinforcement. So just the other day I was talking to someone and they were saying "Oh I was going out for dinner with some people tonight, it's too cold I stayed home." They lose their reinforcement of the pleasure of socializing and we pricey than a lot of other ways as well; less likely to the gym where we know exercise is a mood protector so there's probably other lifestyle change that occurred during the winter that you have some control over and even though it may not be as conducive to do those, we do think it's an an important way to buffer your mood during the winter months. One other thing that everyone should know about is the difference between, if you will, like a true seasonal affective disorder clinical seasonal affective disorder verses, if you will, just sort of like normal mood variation that occurs during the winter and it really has to do with the severity of symptoms. So you know if you feel just a little bit blue but you're able to carry on your schedule you might put that more in the normal category kinda to be expected as a result both at the change in daylight and the change in activity level that we see during the winter. But people that have true seasonal affective disorder they can't function. They can't get to work every day, they withdraw from social activities, they no longer experience pleasure even from other things like watching television shows that they liked and there we think that it's not just a change in your lifestyle but you might require treatment. For people have true seasonal affective disorder it is going to go away and we kinda even to predict when it's going to go away and that's not true of other types of depression. For people that have actual seasonal affective disorder there are several treatments that have been shown to be effective in research. The most effective treatment is actually exposure to light and there are these, they're called "light boxes", where people sit in front of them somewhere between a half hour an hour day and exposed to this kind of an intense,if you will, sun light. You don't get a tan from it but you get the right rays and that oftentimes within a week, people's mood improve substantially just from that. So that's the most common treatment that's available for seasonal affective disorder. In addition to that some antidepressant medications will work especially SSRI is like prozac, the first and probably the most famous those can be helpful those take about two to four weeks to work, and lastly, cognitive behavior therapy that focus is on people's thought process and change in their behavior that can be useful as well. So those are the treatments that are available for people that have a clinical problem with the seasonal affective disorder.


Early life

William J. Sanderson was born in Memphis, Tennessee, to an elementary school teacher mother and a landscape designer father.[1] He volunteered for the army when he was 18 and attended college after his discharge using the G.I. Bill.[2] He holds business (BBA, 1968) and law (J.D., 1971) degrees from the University of Memphis (then known as Memphis State University), though he did not take the bar exam.[3]

Sanderson appeared as one of the mechanics and regulars of the diner in The Rocketeer, who defies Nazi agents looking for the top secret rocket pack. He also portrayed a character named Deuce in an episode of the science fiction television series Babylon 5, and later reprised the role in the television movie Babylon 5: Thirdspace.
