    I work very hard at avoiding anything sad or negative. Once I start down that dark hole, it's like falling off a cliff. I force myself not to get negative. I've been in a good mood for a couple of months, and that surprises me. Avoidance is the key.

    I prefer to communicate with new people online. I have already got new chat video with strangers. We communicate about different things and enjoyed online conversations. I want to meet with online friends in real life one day.

    I definitely empathize. While I don’t think I have anything beyond a low-level anxiety, Covid did a number on me and I finally called it and booked an appointment with a therapist. This last year has been spent reading and trying different things to pull myself out of increasingly-frequent depressive slumps but I think the only thing that came close to helping was making YouTube videos (probably because they’re so much work to put together I don’t think of much else when I’m working on them) but the once I’m done, I’m vulnerable again.

    I’m pretty stoked to be getting help. If the therapist says anything interesting, I’ll be sure to pass it along.

    Yeah... I am having it now too, it is not easy. I am trying to eat healthy and exercise. I think it might help. I also get some good and healthy supplements from Canadian pharmacy which should be good in this case as well. What do you think about such things? Maybe you can give me any tips or recommendations here? That would help so much!

    I will support the last answer. When I feel bad, the first thing I do. I ask myself, am I tired? Or does something hurt me? 80% of the time, I realize that my body is not feeling well, not my mind. Sports, food, work, and a healthy daily routine are the cure for depression. In moments of psychological decline, everyone has their own methods. I enjoy reading the story of the great depression https://samploon.com/free-essays/great-depression/ it is very refreshing to me. I am beginning to understand that my "problems" are just the result of idleness.

    Don't let depression or anxiety to enter your life and in any way run it. I know it's hard times for everyone, but remember you're not alone. Here are really good pieces of advice. I especially liked those about physical and mental health. I always try to spend as much time out as possible, I take walks every evening before going to bed, trying to follow a healthy diet, and do some exercise. Socialization has a huge impact on our mental health. It's really important to communicate with others. Try to find people of your interests, like uke-minded ppl here. Online dating sites is also not a bad idea. You can find some new friends there. For example silversingles app is a place to meet senior people with the same interests. Also, try to attend different events where there's a possibility for a relaxing pass time and pleasant chats.The conclusion is: motion is health! Never stay on one point!
