    Same here, except I don't so much become a slob as just super spacey. I'm mostly there right now.

    I can identify with the not eating part. Isolate myself, moping, dragging my feet. Sleeping in the shower, sleeping for hours in the bed. Disconnect from the world. I guess with my Te I express it to myself in private and figure things out through that way.

    It depends on what kind of "down" I am. If, say, I get a letter of denial from a company I interviewed for and wanted to work for, I'd get down and, unfortunately, booze is my release.

    If I'm "down" on life in general, I try to sleep through it. I also purchased some St. John's Wort that I take the powder out of the capsules and make tea. It helps quite a lot.

    Yes, and I'll spend too much time in my head too and feel even more so disconnected to the physical world than I already am, when I was younger to the point that I experienced the world as threatening and/or overwhelming to my self. It's gotten much better though and I usually turn to others now to have them complete the information I have, which can temporarily make me feel safe again. When I feel bad I also often get the idea that I in fact don't understand anything, I start to doubt everything I once claimed to know and feel miserable and uncapable.

    Most definately, but at the same time I get really creative and obsessed with my daydreams during this time as well. To the point I feel a strong desire to channel it into writing and forget about my life for a while. I do forget to eat, but I also turn to alcohol as well.

    My head becomes a fortress of broodatude. Don’t bother knocking. It was way worse when I was younger. Friends and family tried but no one could really reach me and the more you tried, the further entrenched I made myself. I’m like that with most things though. Tell me I can’t do something and I’ll do it to spite you. Demand of me what I was willing to give and you’ll get nothing. I’m beyond stubborn at times.

    Down in the dumps... Sadness, not stress, yes?

    Yes, to a horrifyingly high degree. Usually, virtually no one knows what's going on, because I only 'reach out' if I need advice on fixing something.

    Out of curiosity, can you describe the kind of help you try provide?

    Yes, but I'm actually kinda this way anyway. I do not like to let people inside of my world. Humor is basically my only connection to anyone besides my closest intimates, and even there, it's relatively sparse or at least guarded/aloof in waves.

    I’m not sure I actively seek to address the actual issues, or I use strategies to escape those issues. Either intent, the go-to is the same, I tend to return to my external, more physical and sensory enjoyments...but, in a detached way, internal way. I might go to my favorite spot on the beach and sit there alone, maybe watch other people on the beach, but I’m never really all that active in the environment I seek out. I can’t say for sure if I pursue these tried and true methods, which seemingly tap into a part of my mind that has the ability to calm and slow it for a minute, a sort of meditation, in order to sit with those feelings and to ponder them more...or is it just simply escape by means of temporarily wiping my slate clean until the next time my inner, emotional balance becomes disturbed? Maybe it’s both.
