depression

I have been battling depression for several weeks, with some days worse than others. I have been the snail or crab looking for a better shell. This is tough because it always has in one of the card decks a suicide card.

I know this does not help, but January truly is the biggest month for depression to set in. It's almost Febrary...hold on.

Oh, I really relate. I've been struggling most of the month, though I'm slowly coming out of it. Contrary to what I used to do -- pour a depressant into my system -- I have done these things: more sleep, but not too much; more sunlight, even if it means opening the blinds in themorning and sitting in front of the window to drink coffee; more meetings; more prayer.

It is working! (I wanted to do more exercise, but apparently, not enough to actually do it.)

Hey Lash, I hope that you get outside and do some activity. It really helps. Anything physical and that keeps you busy, even when you don't want to be busy will help.

i am on anti-anxiety and depression meds and have been for at least 10-12 years now. my Rx has been changed and i am doing okay with it; nothing severe, which is good.

i won't offer you anything trite because it never helped me out of it when i was in the throes of it. all i can say is i understand, i empathize, i wish i could hug you and tell you it's okay to feel the way you are feeling.

fresh air is helpful. plenty of rest (but not on the couch and not all day long, isolating, m'kay?), healthy food choices, and i'll stop now lest i start blathering.
