  • I have been through depression twice. Talk to your doctor about the best treatment for you!!!! And do not be ashamed about it, make sure you have a great doctor that wants to help you get through this!
  • Yes,try to: keep busy, keep positive, keep trying, working out helps.
  • Just put up with it. Alcohol always helped.
  • I have for 3 years. I deal with it with loads of support from the people around me who are willing to help me and having the ability to tell someone when things are starting to go down hill to the point I need some extra care
  • surround yourself with what makes you happy, Watch funny movies, just keep active, you wouldnt think so but your diet can actually effect a lot of your depression and so can the ammount of sleep you get.
  • I did when I was a young teen. Parents divorced and living in a home not feeling really comfortable. Longed for my mom and then when I was with her other things to bring me down. I was not on meds. but had I been I bet it would have helped me deal better. Was out of school for about 1 month. Not good. Had only a few friends but no support system at all. I did not even know what was going on in my head. My life was coping and always trying to get to a place of feeling like I was not always struggling. It took years. God helped me out and I started to love me. I realized I was greatly loved by Him. That was the beginning of my healing. Long journey but doing great today. Trying to help others now.
  • I find that beer makes it easier to deal with it.
  • I worked hard on figuring out what got me depressed and did something about it.
  • I have major depression. Medication has helped a lot. When I was at my worst I could not even get out of bed. My memory went and the confusion I felt was devastating. My self esteem plummeted and I had debilitating insomnia. I am getting better now but it has taken a long time. Without the understanding and support of my dear husband, friends and family I don't think I would have progressed as fast as I have. Just surround yourself by people whom you trust and love. Don't let yourself be pressured into doing anything you don't want to do like going out, having visitors, etc.
  • You asked this question while I was in the hospital for withdraw symptoms from depression medications(and it was my b-day too) I suffer from bi-polar disorder,ups and downs which are extreme without medications.This year alone I have been in patient for more than a month(spread out over the past 6 months)How do I deal?Not well,,without meds,even with them I still struggle,sometimes we just need to remember that it isn't the end of the world to feel depressed(although reminding myself is sometimes impossible) I hope this helped answer your question.
