  • I've felt that way. It's a lonely, awful feeling. It might be time to find ways to work through your depression. Exercise is HUGE for me. It really helps me work through my frustrations and clear my head.

  • I get depressed if I'm out of touch with ma DH. Once he is in touch then I can handle many issues.... Out of touch with ma DH means I need to pretend that I am happy even if I'm not....

  • I get this way sometimes. I will be feeling so down but i put on a happy face for my family. I found one of the best ways to handle this is to get a journal just for this reason and when you are feeling down take it out and write down everything you are feeling at the time. It helps to get everything out and alot of the times just by writing it down you can figure out why you are feeling this way. Also when you start to feel down do something nice for yourself. Like we dont have alot of money so its not like i can go out and get my nails done but i will go into my room turn on a chick flick (during naps or something) and give myself a mani and pedi. Or i will do my hair for no reason at all except to make myself feel good. Also taking a nice hot relaxing bath is great. I will take a good book in with me and just escape the world around me and fall into the book or my thoughts. Hope this helps alittle bit. Good luck.
