St. Liam’s offers treatment for SAD

first_imgStudents depressed by continual snowfall, below-freezing temperatures and cloudy skies can seek refuge in the Inner Resources Room in St. Liam Hall, University Health Services staff psychologist Wendy Settle said. Settle said every year thousands of Americans fall victim to seasonal affective disorder (SAD), a type of clinical depression that emerges during the long and dark winter months. Research shows people need a certain amount of sunlight to maintain their well-being. Settle said light absorbed by the body stops the production of melatonin, a hormone produced to help the body sleep. During the winter, people are drowsier because the body produces more melatonin with fewer hours of daylight. “We become almost like a bear hibernating,” she said. Symptoms of SAD include depression, fatigue, irritability and weight gain, according to Settle. About one to two percent of Americans experience severe symptoms, while 10 to 25 percent encounter the “winter blues,” a watered-down version of SAD with milder symptoms, such as over-eating and over-sleeping. Victims of SAD and the winter blues typically reside in the middle latitude regions of the United States, Settle said. As residents of South Bend, students at Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s are extremely vulnerable. The Inner Resources Room, located on the third floor of St. Liam Hall, was designed specifically to help students suffering from winter depression on campus. In addition to a massage chair, negative ion therapy and a mini waterfall hanging on the wall, the Inner Resources Room offers light therapy. The Light Box provides full spectrum light with no UV rays. While the large lamp does not tan skin at all, Settle said the light box rejuvenates students suffering from depression with its artificial sunlight. The Inner Resources Room has one Light Box on hand as well two others available for rental. Settle said thirty minutes per day could snap light box users out of their winter funk. Most patients use light therapy in the early morning hours, Settle said. “[The light box] is best to use in the morning,” she said, “because it tricks your body into thinking your day has been extended.” Benefits of light therapy include higher energy levels, better concentration, fewer mood swings and a better night’s sleep. The Inner Resources Room is available for students, faculty and staff without any recommendation or official diagnosis from a doctor. Patients start to feel a difference in as little as three to four days, and research shows light therapy’s effectiveness rate is similar to antidepressants, Settle said. Light therapy can benefit an individual feeling the effects of SAD but Settle said professional treatment is still the best option for anyone suffering depression. “Anyone with symptoms of SAD should be evaluated by a physician to determine the best treatment option,” she said.last_img read more

REMEMBERING ‘STORMIN’ NORMAN’S BLAST FROM THE PAST!

first_imgIt’s a beautiful blast from the past.Finn Harps will be familiar with the name Norman Costello – or Storming’ Norman as he became known.As mentioned by our sports columnist Paddy Walsh in his weekly dispatch this week, the colourful goalkeeper will be remembered for the part he played in Finn Harps 1993/94 season.Our columnist remembered in particular the return journey home via chartered plane from Cobh to Derry after being beaten by Roy Keane’s former club in a crucial cup tie.He recalled how Norman tried to keep a brave face as those around him wanted to jump out of the plane.But, having read Walshy’s column this week, Norman decided to give us his take on that journey home and how he still has a very large soft spot for Finn Harps.We’d like to thank Norman for taking the time to contact us.This is his reply. Greetings Your column regarding my whereabouts after Marty Morrisseys broadcast last Sunday brought a big smile to my face and brought back some very fond memories of my time in Donegal. Whilst I found the article very funny, it also brought a tinge of sadness to me. I am indeed alive and well. The trip back on the plane that fateful evening was a very sombre affair but sports people react to defeats in different ways. My anguish always came the following day and in this case, when I woke up to the reality of having lost an extremely crucial game knowing that so many people in the club were relying on a victory. I was acutely aware of the effort so many people had put into the club and the abolsutely huge following that travelled to Cobh that night. In fact, I remember quite distinctly, the look on peoples faces when i walked down the main street of Letterkenny the following day.It was pure disappointment. The Finn Harps club and the fans at the time always treated me with the upmost respect and its something I have never forgotten. I have friends to this day as a result and not a week goes by when I don’t check the results to see how Harps did.In fact its great to see a fellow Galway and Salthill man Ollie Horgan in charge. Can I wish the team and the Donegal Daily ever success for the future.thanks for the memoriesregards Norman.REMEMBERING ‘STORMIN’ NORMAN’S BLAST FROM THE PAST! was last modified: June 19th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Cobh Ramblersdonegalfinn harpsNorman Costellolast_img read more
