Ah- when I am depressed- I go into what I call the ABYSS OF DESPAIR.
Just what is the Abyss of Despair-
it is when you lay in bed all day with your clothes on and you are paralyzed by your overwhelming emotions- so much so that you become numb and unable to do anything. You think of what is upsetting you from every single possible angle overanalyze the hell out of it and then you start on a downward spiral where everyone and everything is against you and how everything is going down to hell and why is it so hard to be me.
You stay in there until someone pulls your butt out and makes you talk about what is going on with you- why you are upset and etc. This person must remind you of the good things- and how the world may be against you but they are not and beat into your head positive thoughts. Being held helps me come out of it as well.
A lot of times- most of the time the trip to the Abyss is the result of frustrating/hurtful social interactions- and so I need a positive social interaction to really get out of it.
Another thing that helps me come out of the Abyss is by taking the Depressed Persian Tow Truck Man remedy where you look at the news and what is going on with the rest of the world- people struggling and going through more unfortunate things then you are going through and get humbled
and start counting your blessings instead of counting your woes.
Depends on if the paralyzation happens in a room with a t.v. or not.
Even if so I still need someone to talk to about it with.
So I don't know that I deal with depression- because the few times it overwhelms me -I don't do anything- I am paralyzed and numb.
It doesn't happen often and when it does it is actually pretty easy to get me out of it- I have to talk about what is going on with me and feel understood and be reminded of the positive but I will not actively seek it- it has to be forced out of me.
Thank God for the butt-kickers is all I have to say,lol.
