You should try some of the Towns or Cities in the Central Valley of CA...It's considered more affordable here than other parts of the state and you definately will get alot of sunshine.

Invest in a SAD lamp. Cheaper than medication and they do work.

I live in the Central Valley of Ca and every winter get Seasonal Affective Disorder. Not enough sunshine here between November and Mid February too foggy and overcast.

This is all so weird to me - I know people who complain about it here, but I've never had an inkling of winter depression...the only seasonal issues I've ever had are relentless hot/sunny days in the dog days of summer.

I live in one of the sunniest (according to the C of C) locales in the US and still get depressed in winter. Heck, I don't even mind the cold or snow, it's the short, cloudy days that depress me. Even if they're few and far between. Yesterday sunny and 65 and I felt great, today cloudy and flurries and it sucks.

I get SAD every year. I've lived in many different locations and further south hasn't helped at all. The only time I didn't experience it was living in the South Pacific where there were no apparent seasonal changes. It wasn't that there was more sun. On one island, I lived on the side that was somewhat grey and dreary. It was that there was an even amount of daylight. After some time in northern states, I moved back home to south Texas hoping that shorter winters would help. It really doesn't. It's probably exacerbated simply because the Texas culture is sooooo not my thing and I'm always feeling quite out of place here. I've learned to manage some of the problems associated with SAD, but it's clear this will be something I'll always have to live with. It's just not practical or feasible to live on the equator. Plus, I actually really like cold weather. I certainly prefer winter to unbearably hot summers.
