    •  Interesting... espeically about Vitamin D. (0+ / 0-)

      February, I generally feel just blah.  I'm not really sick, in the traditional sense, but ......

      I live in the north and work in a very windowless cube land.  So, consequently, in December and January, I get to see the sun very little, provided it's out on the weekends.  I can see where a lack of sun and/or vitamin D over a prolonged period can contribute to a general lack of feeling unwell.
