There's being depressed (over something) and then there's depression.
I'm talking the kind of depression where you are unable to motivate to do much of anything at all - lost interest in things you usu. enjoy;
have difficulty being productive at work.
Does anyone want to share anything that has been successful (other than or in addition to therapy and/or pharms) to extract yourself from it?
I'm looking for suggestions. In past experience with this there is no instigating factor. Exercise and proper diet work well, but at the moment I lack the vitality for initiating anything, including these lifestyle changes, that would help. I feel like I'm between a rock and a hard place. I'm taking time off work next week (1st vacation in so very long---no $$ to go away, but at least I'll be away from a toxic work situation); maybe that will contribute to some sort of improvement.
Thanks for your input.
