    Not currently, but I probably should be (and eventually will probably retry once I figure out where my issue lies, it it's required of course).

    No. I find if I am depressed for months at a time, it means I have to start changing how I live my life in some way, even if I am unaware of what is causing the depression. The point is to force myself into a different perspective, which in turn gives me perspective about myself. I find depression usually to be a symptom of resignation due to a sense of hopelessness about something, so that's what I try to challenge.

    ^This.

    In my case I think it's a mix of having depression as a comorbid symptom of ADHD (though the diagnoses was "possibly chronic depression") but also the tendency to ignore how my own thinking pattern and lifestyle influences my mood. For a long time I refused to believe that changing my lifestyle could in fact help me feel better.

    There's a time I did take Abilify to deal with the mood swings but it made me feel extremely sleepy, couldn't walk more than 30 minutes,...

    So a while ago I did finally try to change my lifestyle, get out of bed, to do things even when I 'do not feel like it' and it has helped me. Now I neglected the lifestyle part again for a while and I can already feel that it in fact, does influence my moods. The difficult part about changing your lifestyle is that it's a very slow process. The effects of it are not felt immediately. I think especially that is what makes it so hard for people to change and to continue to do so.
    (Right now, I especially have difficulties again with 'where to start' because there is so much that needs to change. :'))
