Log in to Reply We don’t Log in to Reply Fast cars, working out and getting intoxicated Log in to Reply I look at funny pictures online Log in to Reply There’s a couple different things that I like to do personally: – I just acknowledge how I’m feeling and try to be optimistic as much as possible. I think about moments in my past where things felt very dark and hopeless and tell my self that I once felt that those times were going to last forever, but here I am past all of it. Whenever I’m having a bad day or moment in my life I just tell myself that it will be over eventually and it is. – Therapy. Don’t need to go into detail. They’re there for a reason and there’s no shame in seeing one. You’d be surprised at how much they can help you figure things out and move forward with your life. – A good meal. I’m biased on this one because I’m a chef, but a good meal wherever it comes from always makes me happy to some degree at the very least. – Video games. When the real world sucks, you can enter a different one and be emotionally vested in that world instead. I my childhood was full of abuse and neglect, but the games were always there to give me a story or action to look forward to. ​ I know everyone’s circumstances are different, but this is what has worked for me.

Log in to Reply Sometimes I don’t realize I’m depressed until I’m in the middle of a depressive episode. I made a depressive episode kit for myself. Sometimes I can’t bring myself to shower or wash my face, so I buy face wipes, body wipes, dry shampoo and conditioner. A lot of ppl may find it gross, but when you’re at your worst they come in handy. I have a candle to help bring comfort. Sometimes I find myself unable to brush my teeth, so mouthwash is apart of the kit. Something to fidget with, easy snacks and food that take no preparation. It’s not the most sustainable thing, but I switch to paper plates to keep dishes from piling up because seeing them tends to make me spiral. Log in to Reply Exercise. Statistically in USA, which is the most over diagnosed country in the world, exercise is as much effective if not more effective to treat depression than SSRIs since it helps you build a serotonin baseline without the negative side effects. Thank you abnormal psychology class. I also game, smoke, and socialize as much as possible.

And whiskey Log in to Reply Lean into it. Nothing matters. Log in to Reply Come to the realization that you are probably depressed because of the system you are forced to live in. If that is the case, understand that it is not you that is the problem and find the strength within yourself to accept yourself for what you are and use your power to find your rhythm with the universe. Work towards goals that are your own and important for YOU, not status, not a career, not a model family etc. Don’t judge yourself by these things, and don’t let the voices of people that don’t really care about you matter in any way. You will break through, focus on who you are becoming. Keep on keeping on…. Log in to Reply Lots of weed Log in to Reply Forgiveness. Depression is simply anger turned inwards.
