I was nearly anorexic. 5'11" and 120 lbs. Probably doesn't count, but I'm like 30 lbs more now, so I'm good.

Stopped eating meat, hilariously enough. Also, apparently consuming all the caffeine in the Universe cheers me up!

For me, my cure for depression has always been watching a movie, anime, listening to music or playing video games.

I make my brain multitask... so it doesn't have space to think about anything else. When I stop the activities, it all comes back really heavy, but I'll be so exhausted, I'll fall asleep and when I'm sleeping, it's like I'm dead, I'm not aware that I exist.

I thankfully do not suffer from such. I am, however, a member of the Tennessee Suicide Prevention Network, and am also a CIT officer (a police officer specially-trained to deal with situations involving mental consumers and persons experiencing severe emotional trauma). Individually, there is little that I can do for a person other than try to deescalate their immediate situation to prevent harm. However, moving beyond that immediate situation, we have access to a wide variety of assistance for the person. My job is to try to keep them (and anyone with them) safe long enough to enact that help.

My grandmother does the same thing.

I've also suffered from depression and PTSD, though the pills they gave me only made it worst. It got to a point where I stopped going to see a psychiatrist all together since it seems they're so quick in giving you medication and not actually interested in actually helping you.

What I do now I'm depressed was keep going on with life while working through it. What I used to do was either lay in bed the whole day without moving except to use the restroom, not eat, eat for comfort, snap on family members randomly or keep quiet about it. Good thing I quit the laying in bed for days bit and being rude to the family and eating for comfort (so glad for my high metabolism to) because I had to realize that was not a logical choice to make when dealing with sadness.

I never thought to do self-harm or take something harmful since I want to take care of my temple. I procrastinate when I'm lazy, not sad. xD
