Feminist doctor reaches out to big men.
The little boy you once were, that precious little baby, grew up to be big. Protect him and protect all the children, now that you can.
Soon the spring will come and the days will awaken with brilliant hope. Go find the sunshine and the splash of the burbling brook you once loved. The birds will sing and the skies will open with sprinkling warm rain to feed the beautiful flowers that they glisten to make you smile.

To all men: Love the children you once were.
Trees will have fresh new leaves pressing clean oxygen and their fresh scent to your nostrils, filling you with new life and hope.
Changing seasons are not to be sad, there’s nothing bad. Look past your gloom to see a fresh new day for mother Earth, who loves you. Enjoy the light.
You are a good man, a very dear boy, who grew up and got big. But remember that little one you once were and please take care of him as I wish for you, as he should be loved like all children.
Love him and talk to him and remember him as he was. Reach in your mind a hand to that little boy, and say ‘never let go of the child I was’.
That’s how I think of you and and I hope you do to. The little boy you forgot was you; that precious little baby, grew up big, still to be you.
Protect him and protect all the children, now that you can. Now that you are big.

Seasonal affective disorder may not exist says the CDC and Scientific American.
Megan Traffanstedt and Dr. LoBello, in collaboration with Dr. Sheila Mehta, searched the CDC’s survey results for links between high scores on the depression screen and particular seasons or latitudes. The researchers also looked to see if high latitudes combined with the winter season to raise the frequency of depressed answers more than high latitude or winter alone. Hours of sunlight at a given location and date are available from the U.S. Naval Observatory, so the researchers even tested for links between depression scores and hours of sunlight on the day a score was collected. If light is responsible for SAD, then looking at hours of sunlight should be a sensitive way to detect people with SAD among the general population, they thought.Instead, the CDC survey revealed no evidence for seasonal affective disorder. The researchers were wary of overlooking SAD trends among the huge non-SAD population, so they reanalyzed answers from a subset of people who classified as depressed at the time of the survey. Still no sign of SAD. No seasonal or light-dependent increases appeared in the depression measures. We might wonder if something was wrong with the phone study, but other well-established trends appeared in the survey data, such as higher rates of depression for women and the unemployed.
