    There are times when I get really depressed. I just don't know what to do. I think that period is coming once again. I have started getting those thoughts again. And then I will start getting depressed. I will not feel like doing anything, not talk to anyone.
    Do you experience such days? What do you do to overcome it?

    I think most people on this forum will have felt what you have described, and we all have good and bad days. At times, I find being alone is better because I would just be mean and snappy at people, and it's best for me to have space.

    How do you overcome it? You get to know yourself, and what works for you and explain to people to respect your space if you need to switch off the phone or stay at home for a while.

    Many days are like that for me. I tend to shut myself away with only my dogs for company. If you are feeling like that and you are concerned about those thoughts that you can't get rid of, how about asking your Doctor for some meds? If you aren't keen on chemical meds then there is always St. Johns Wart and Ginkgo Biloba which are both natural remedies and great for depressive feelings. Another thing you can do when you feel a bit low, is chat with a friend, come on here and tell us all how you are feeling. Do know though, that you are not alone, we are here with you.
