Every once in a while I get down in the dumps, but I just let it pass until I'm in a better mindset.

Dunno how it's going to get with the hormones and post-partum, though. :(

Finding myself, and thus meaning in my life.

Although I must admit, the person inside my head is not me.

You're implying I've beaten it.

I haven't "kicked" depression by any means, but I am certainly improving (gradually).
I quit drinking entirely and have improved my diet. I rarely drink pop and I don't drink energy drinks any more. I get more vitamins and all that stuff.

Optimism, B (as in the flash movie, it's surprisingly relaxing), music, the internet and selective memory.

A new dog can always help. I had my ex who helped me greatly with it, I lost him and it was terrible, but I now have another partner and it's helping me to feel even happier again. Added to the fact I already learnt to livewith the depression I did have and started to lower it.

I don't know if I am depressed now or if I have ever been depressed at all.

I was pretty seriously depressed for a period of about 6-8 months a few years ago for a whole lotta reasons. It took me a long time to get out of it and the catalyst to getting out of it ended up being just going out and having a good backpacking adventure in the mountains with some friends. It was the worst fucking trip ever and we nearly died but it changed my attitude, I came back and started exercising and taking care of myself. I found an awesome thing I could be passionate about and things just seemed brighter.

So my answer is appreciating my friends, exercise and snowboarding I guess.

For my days or weeks where I seem to feel like crap in more recent times I'd say the above plus music. There's always something to help you deal with frustration, sadness or pretty much anything.

I love the replies that say "no one gives a fuck". Anyone with depression doesn't give a single shit about whether anyone gives a fuck about his or her depression.

I found that art and productivity with animation helps me. A really nice cure is just trying to break down the wall, go with the flow of life and calling up some friends to hang out. Or maybe even just IMing someone over Facebook. Plus, time usually kicks it.

i've been in and out of depression for about two years now, so i haven't really "kicked" it. but what i usually do to feel better basically just a combination of getting a sense of accomplishment and surrounding myself with people.

but if all else fails, i drink until i can't feel feelings. that doesn't always work though, and definitely isn't a long term fix.


crazy? i'm not crazy. i'm a table.

Depression comes in waves. Turmeric is a great anti-depressant. :P

Also, exercise.

I waited for it to go away.
It came back, of course.
I tend not to be depressed while I'm writing/planning for my writing, unless I feel like I'm really sucking at it, though.

I've not been through it myself but my mum has suffered with sever depression in the past. Counselling helped her an awful lot, being able to talk through her feelings in different situations and thinking through how to change the behavioural patterns that triggered it. Thinking of positives out of any situation helps, as hard as it may be and a support network is vital, however it's something you need to overcome yourself. Prescribed meds, although obvious, are always a great help too. That's what I've learnt through her battle anyway, she seems much happier at the moment which is great to see.
