ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Finally, we're expected to have warmer temperatures and sunny skies for this weekend. And it may be just what the doctor ordered.

All the cold, rainy weather we've had over the last few months is really taking a toll on people. Psychologist Cheryl Kaiser says more patients getting counseling for seasonal depression.

Dr. Kaiser said, "We have a lot of seasonal affective disorder. People who are coming in because we've had so many cold days. One after the next, after the next and lots of lots of rain, that people are just kind of locked in way more than they would normally be and that also increases depression."

Vitamin D is produced in your body when your skin is exposed to light. Being stuck inside can lead to a vitamin D deficiency which has been linked with depression.
