Verilux "Happy Light"

I don't have seasonal affective disorder (SAD) but in the grey months I find this to be helpful. Since bipolars tend to be more depressed in the winter I thought ths maybe helpful for some. I use it and it has a comforting feeling. Just don't look right at it, have it shine in the room you are in!

I am glad to hear this light is useful. I just ordered a large one. I have (SAD) and believe me when I tell you, even a summer rainy day can really get me down.
