    I already answered, and I always get spacey, but I also have a history of responding to emotional distress by not being able to eat and walking obsessively. It makes me lose like 20 pounds in a month sometimes. That usually happens to me during breakups. There is this intense nervous energy that forces me to keep moving my body and walking.

    When at my lowest points, I seek sanctuary in my own head and withdraw from the physical realm -- I generally want to be alone to sort through my emotions, mentally, without dusruption. I've been told by many people that when I'm in that sort of emotional space, while I'll most likely never verbalize what's bother me, my body language makes it very apparent how I'm feeling.

    When in this mind state, a long drive by myself to nowhere in particular or a long walk, as fitting mood music plays in the background, feels quite cathartic.

    I don't feel down in the dumps. More likely to get irritated or angry. (note I did get depressed once but that was an anomoly)

    When I'm down in the dumps, often I'll retreat inside of your head. Maybe that's just because I'm a 4w5 not a 5w4.

    I tend to close myself off and introspect alone in an empty space, usually my room. I find it incredibly difficult to express my feelings with other people and prefer to keep everything to myself. In general, I find it very draining to be around other people for a certain length of time, but it is even more amplified than usual when I'm down in the dumps/stressed out. Thus my propensity for escapism, with daydreaming while listening to music and making art being my chosen form of it. However, this is something I often do anyway out of necessity. Also, depending on the severity of it, there is a pretty high likelihood that I'd become deeply engaged in maladaptive daydreaming, so I need to keep a watchful eye to make sure I don't completely lose myself in fantasy.

    If situationally down in the dumps, I do just want to be on my own and will just want comforts, will want to crawl into bed earlier, sleep, and so on.

    If existentially down in the dumps, which usually also includes stress, it's less about comforts and more just... things seem really bleak or I'm anxious about what to do or how to improve things. I'll still probably want to be on my own but also it's somewhat more of a 'familiar' land for me, so it's not as impactful as it was in my 20's. It just is - and it translates into my just being 'meh' and 'bleh' about life in general and the world, but I'll still go about stuff. I can interact or do things with close friends though and maybe talk about it a bit.

    The issue though is that since when in these negative spaces I ideally just need to be on my own to ride them out, life does go on and it's the element of having to put on an act at work that completely drains me, gives me headaches, and I think is the reason irritability and anger and judgment come into the picture -- because if I'm feeling bleak inside but have to carry on with customers and try to put on a good face the energy it takes just depletes me and it all transfers into irritability with everyone I'm having to interact with. Forced extroversion? I become resentful and it's very taxing. So when I have to be around people and interact I then am as quiet as possible saying as little as possible since the forced engagement makes me really crabby on top of everything else. I think this is a lot of what goes on and why, at least.

    This. Other than some post-partum, I've never felt down in the dumps. Annoyed/irritated/angry - yes.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.
