SAD symptoms are not that different from that of depression; difficulty getting out of bed, overeating, and lack of energy can all be connected to it. There could also be a decrease in activity, trouble keeping focused, and irritability. Extreme cases will also include hopelessness and worthlessness, withdrawal from social interaction, and even thoughts of suicide. 

Most SAD sufferers already experience a depressive disorder, but the symptoms become more apparent seasonally.
