difficult child 2 seems to be falling into an emotional pattern relative to the time of year. Last Fall around mid-November he became more emotional and hypersensitive to criticism, and lately he seems to be going through some of the same things. He says he feels like things annoy him more, and he's been getting his feelings hurt easily and been more teary lately. I've heard about the negative mood issues being a common response in some people with their exposure (or lack of) to sunlight. Has anyone here used one of those "light boxes" to help counteract the effects of the shorter days on someone with a mood disorder? Where is a reputable place to buy one? Did your insurance cover it?
