Thread Name: BS: sliding into a depression
Subject: RE: BS: sliding into a depression
I can't really add more, but agree with what others have said. You've recognised it's depression. Good, you can stop the negative voices that tell you it's just you being useless. Try to keep regular hours. Treat yourself to a well-balanced meal-that can link in with make yourself do something, anything, and remember just moving is exercise if you can't manage anything more energetic yet. If medication is what it takes, so be it. I understand people not wanting to be reliant on pills to feel "normal", but few of those same people would recommend e.g. diabetics should learn to be normal without insulin. And remember there are a lot more of us than we think! Good luck.
