Default Re: Feelings depressed all the time

I try to focus on self care when my depression is really bad. So that means making sure I'm eating right, getting exercise, getting enough sleep, showering, then it also means doing some nice things for myself. Maybe having a bit of a spa day. Laying on my bed cuddling with one of my pets or a stuffed animal. Going out in nature. Looking at cute pictures of kitties online. Etc. Any of these things and more to buoy my spirits. When that isn't enough, going to a T appointment, talking to a friend, talking to a helpline. Etc. HUGS Kit

You're already aware of distractions and relaxing techniques like yoga so I won't suggest those. Perhaps some self-help books that you may buy? Perhaps some GOOD articles or YouTube videos if you aren't already checking out those. i also believe eating healthy and sleeping well if you can are REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY IMPORTANT AS WELL! THE WISE AND WONDERFUL @SlumberKitty HAS GIVEN YOU LOTS OF AND PLENTY OF WISE AND WONDERFUL ADVICE AS WELL! Please be kind to yourself as that's the MOST IMPORTANT THING THAT YOU CAN DO! I AM TRULY, DEEPLY SORRY THAT YOU'RE HURTING AND STRUGGLING SO BADLY AND THAT YOU'RE GOING THROUGH ALL OF THIS! Feel free to PM me ANYTIME as usual when you need advice and support or even simply someone to talk to or vent to! I'LL TRY TO GET BACK AT YOU AS SOON AS I POSSIBLY CAN! THAT'S A PROMISE! YOU CAN STAY ASSURED OF THAT! I am SURE plenty of others will also KINDLY, GLADLY, WISELY, BEAUTIFULLY AND WONDERFULLY help you out as well! I AM SURE OF THAT! YOU CAN STAY ASSURED OF THAT! Sending many safe, warm hugs to BOTH you, @Buffy01, your family, your friends, your nieces and ALL of your Loved Ones! Keep fighting and keep rocking! I AM TRULY DEEPLY SORRY THAT YOU'RE GOING THROUGH ALL OF THIS AND THAT YOU'RE HURTING AND STRUGGLING SO BADLY! PLEASE NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER GIVE UP HOPE! KEEP FIGHTING AND KEEP ROCKING! Things will tunr out better for you! I AM SURE OF THAT!
