NK - thanks, I will keep you in mind. Helps to know someone is out there and willing to listen. I rarely take people up on their offers, not sure why. Reaching out is hard, I guess.
Snoops - Don't feel like you have to read all this Oh I know I have/had SAD. My Vitamin D levels are much better than they used to be, and I can definitely feel when they're not right. It's possible, due to my recent digestive issues, I'm not absorbing the D I've been supplementing. I should probably get those levels re-checked this month or next, so I know what dose is good for maintenance throughout the winter. I took 10,000 IU every day for several months and finally got in the mid-50s (ng/dl? something like that), which my doctor said was good enough, but I would rather it be higher, since I'm prone to deficiency. I've never looked into getting those lamps because it's a big investment up front. Anyway, I considered myself cured this year, since I was no longer getting "rainy day blues", but that issue may be resurfacing. I'll up my Vitamin D supplementation to 10k/day for the next week or so, just to make sure I'm covered.
 Also, took another dose of Tryptophan and I'm feeling a little better. That is less than 500mg for the day (finishing off the odd dosage bottle I had). Next bottle is 500mg/capsule, so one should be enough, unless I need more in the afternoon. We shall see.
I think I have time for a stroll to oggle Hallowe'en stuff at the party store today.
