  • Rn I'm a little depressed because sick (again), I'm going to make hot herb tea brew 🍵with chamomile to relax, at least the the tiredness from sickness makes me think less...
    When I'm just depressed and I can't stop thinking then I try to find a distraction like music, take a shower, manicure, shopping, talk or go out with friends

  • I have GAD and usually therapy helps, they teach me to manage it along side medication (as a temporary relief from major anxiety). Other than that I try and channel that anxiety into adrenaline and focus on more positive, productive things that will distract me from whatever is causing me anxiety.

    For depression generally look up to role models on youtube that are in a similar situation as I, thats always motivational

  • I keep my mind occupied. I don't allow thoughts to creep into my head. I'll even pretend I'm having a conversation with someone that isn't there at the moment, just to keep bad thoughts from creeping into my head. I can't even sit there with just music on. Music gets put into the background by my brain and thoughts start creeping in. I can't sleep without something on. Can't be the TB being drowned into the background, can't be music. It has to be something I am genuinely interested in that my brain can focus on until I fall asleep. And I used to give other people advice to just not let the thoughts happen. But that's not dealing with it. That's avoiding it. That being said, I do think it's a good idea to keep your mind occupied when you have depression. Just make sure you take some time to deal with the actual issue.

    • Exactly. You don't deal with it. It gets rid of you when it decides it's done with you.

  • Working out was my cure and still to this day works for me

  • Started writing an anonymous blog. I've always found thst I dealt with my issues better by listening to other problems. My subconscious focused on me whilst I focused on someone else. Recently life went up the crapper and I started a blog. I don't structre what I write i literally just let it flow. I have about 100 people who read it now and it helps me knowing people are in the same boat and that I'm helping people at the same time as helping myself.

  • I just try my best to do what I really feel it needs to be done, and since I started living like that, basically trying to follow my heart, I'm rarely ever anxious, though well, I am often sad...
