Default that little something ...

when your just on the down side and you feel yourself slipping away ... what little something do you do to stop the slide or maybe even recover .... my guess for most of you is it will be the same as mine ... music ... and lots of tears ... yah I am not afraid to admit I cry like a baby ... it seems to make things better ... and when it goes (dark) any rope to grab onto is a good one ...

hoping your days are happy ones ... Tigger .

I listen to music as well. I have a playlist of positive songs that sometimes can pull me out of a funk before I fall to deep into the hole.

Music is what makes the soul sing - may it bring you some solace.

I agree music is a wonderful thing for the mind and soul, but that's just one of many simple pleasures I seek out.

What's a life of agony to one person is another person's five minutes of hardship. I think I recover quickly from many (not all) by not only having a compulsion to seek simple pleasures but to share Scarlett O'Hara's "Tomorrow is another day" mentality and strategy. It's somewhat related to CBT. Right now may suck, but this afternoon maybe not. And then go after that afternoon as if it's meant to be better.

Crying is a great release. That's good, as long as it is seem as a release. Get it out and then be freer. For others, a good scream does the same thing or some other type of "jolt" as I call them.

Never ever allow yourself to stop believing that things will eventually get better. Fight hard, or just patiently wait as if a bear hybernating in the winter. Or be that bear, but take peeks out of the cave now and then to seek the beam of light that finally illuminates your mind.

I read and read and read , music doesn稚 allow me to escape. If anything music can make matters worse if I知 feeling down and loop one or 2 sad songs. Where as a book I get sucked into another world and forget my messy life.

I love Indie writers so I down load a ton on my kindle , if I like the book great , if I don稚 ? Neither cost me anything.

Hope you feel better soon hun

Yeah, music doesn't help me either for the same reasons.

I watch YouTube documentaries. Some of them are really interesting since you can find a documentary about pretty much anything. Books, movies, human body, medical conditions, mental health, cars... whatever. I also watch some English TV shows, like those on Barcroft TV, BBC, etc.. I think English TV tends to have better documentaries and shows than American TV (I think the English ones are less politically correct and are more reflective of the subject they're describing), but that's just me.

Distraction is a great tool. Do whatever helps you take your mind off it best. I find getting outside for a bit helpful too. I知 so sorry you池e suffering. Hang in there, breathe, and never lose hope as this will pass.

Do you have professional and friend/family support? Use as much as you can. Being alone for too long makes things worse. Even hit the shops if you can just to be around people.

Light hearted black and white movies works for me. I知 in trouble if I listen to music and get the wrong thing stuck in head.

Family and friends supporting me helps, or going to a meetup group; social contact is key.
