My SAD Lamp Has Made Me Marginally Less Sad: An Update

Last week I posted about giving in and buying a $99 SAD lamp despite my hesitations and dubiousness with regard to their efficacy. It's not that I had done any real research or talked to a doctor or therapist about the issue -- which you know, recommended! And it's not that I didn't think it totally worked for some people or that mental health issues are anything to really joke about.
