The Happy Lamp

With the days getting shorter, I’m on the lookout for Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), something that hits me like a bat to the head each winter. I’ve written extensively about the medicinal therapy for this, but now I have a new weapon.

Mood music:

Meet my new friend, the Happy Lamp:

Erin bought two of these, one for me and one for Duncan, who also gets a bit crazy when the daylight recedes. To be honest, me and Duncan are highly skeptical.

But Erin spent the money, and her intentions are golden, so we’re taking this thing for a spin.

Here’s one benefit: Duncan thinks the two of us are supposed to sit right next to it for a half hour in the morning, so I get my snuggle time in. The boy may be 7, but he still has just enough squish to him that he makes an excellent blanket or pillow. So at the very least, the Happy Lamp gives us a bit more quality time.

My therapist thinks the lamp is a wonderful idea. He insists IT WILL work wonders.

I remain skeptical. But I do like the warmth it gives off.

I’ll let you know how this experiment turns out later.
