So around every August for the past few years Ive tended to feel a little hopeless,lethargic, uninterested in my usual hobbies. And just tired, I've never had any real freakouts, at least ones by enough for people to realize. I'm trying not to label myself, especially since I haven't gone to a doctor, I've made appointments in the past but would cancel when I felt that the time could be better spent on someone who knew. But can Summer SAD start in August even though it's nearing the end of Summer? That's all my question is, not if I have it or anything. Just curious, thank you.

August is the last month of summer, and by mid-August most schools have resumed and many of the usual summertime "fun" activities have ended. More significantly though is that the days are becoming shorter, so we do notice that there is less and less daylight every day. For those in the northern hemisphere, fall is only a month away.

Though August is not as dreary as November, when gray skies and falling leaves typically announce the beginning of seasonal affective disorder, September typically has crisp, clear days that for most are refreshing after the heat of summer. It is more likely that you are experiencing sadness due to the end of summer, rather than SAD from the start of winter.
