Playing music. I play violin & cello, when I play my instruments for that moment I'm shutting down the outside world, forgetting my sorrows and completely enraptured in the world of music. It always makes me feel better.

First of all, Haru you are so awesome. You and I seem to have a great deal in common from what I read on your profile. (Fangirling! )


I also play music when I am feeling down. Usually the cello, violin or piano make for the best escape because they're so melancholic when you are lacking the appropriate words to convey either through speaking or simply down on a piece of paper. Music is one of the best outlets to express the inner depths of your soul and to compose how you're feeling through individual and unique expression.

I also find brisk walking to be a wonderful way to release endorphins into your body that give you that 'natural high' that ultimately relaxes your body from stress. I, of course, like any other person have resorted to stress eating, but I have come to realize that stuffing your face doesn't make the problem go away. In fact, studies have shown that when you are experiencing trying times the cortisol in your body is increased along with natural stress hormones. If anything, eating your sorrows away causes you to sink further into depression and causes negative impacts to the body, whereas expressing yourself in a creative outlet or letting off steam and stress by doing something active really makes a positive difference. But after you find a creative outlet there isn't anything wrong with a little wine and chocolate in moderation. ;)

It's extremely hard to ease the pain when you suffer from clinical depression. Hell it's hard to ease pain when you don't deal with a mental illness. Pain is pain regardless of why you have that pain and nobody's pain should ever be treated lightly.

I used to use drugs and alcohol to numb that pain but it ended up causing me more pain in the long run. Now I just do the best I can. When I can't get out and talk to others and start to isolate myself I'll come here or somewhere else and post in the forums. That way I can still talk to and help others and not completely shut myself off from the rest of the world. I'll watch a good anime and read all the comments and join in so I don't feel so alone. It's nice to be a part of something sometimes. I used to read a lot of books but haven't done so in a while. I sort of miss it but my eyes suck and allergies have just made that hard this year. I pet my cats and love on them.....again allergies lol. I'm freaking allergic to everything. Mainly I just buy time. I do whatever I can to make this moment pass me by as quick as possible. The more time I'm able to buy for myself the better off I'll be. Eventually the real me will show back up. Playing video games, taking a walk, working, counting cracks on the wall, whatever. It all buys me some time and time is my biggest ally but also my worst enemy so I need to waste as much time as possible some days. We all deal with pain differently. Nobody should ever be told that they don't have a reason to be depressed. One does NOT need a reason to be depressed and nobody's pain should ever be pushed to the side or ignored. For each one of us it's real and it hurts. We should all be more understanding of that fact and try harder to empathize with each other and be more willing to reach out to say a kind word or to give a hug when someone needs it.

So to all those who are depressed, unhappy, in pain or upset for whatever reason: /Hugs.

At the moment, I'm not really dealing at all and basically just sleep or focus on my favourite series. Honestly, I cannot stay awake even when I play games and stuff now.

A coworker just got fired for something small, and there's another one that cannot perform at the job well, causing issues for myself and my other coworker (there are near daily emails to the manager about what she did wrong, so we are trying). She's still there. These are large corporations we deal with. We cannot have big mistakes happen often. Tonight, I'm listening to music, eating foods I like, and I'm going to exercise later. I am a bit of a health nut, so I had one of each of my vitamins to calm the stress. I was shaking for two hours from all the stress. Work sucks. I want to go back to the times when I didn't have bills to pay, live paycheck to paycheck, and didn't have to worry about a car/family/work/house.
