I've dealt with depressive episodes that made just living difficult. How do y’all deal with it? How do you get yourself to feel normal again?

    i struggle with this too so i’m still trying to figure out what helps, but i noticed that listening to music i listen to when i’m happy helps me. or songs that remind me of good times, it puts me in that mood temporarily which is a nice escape. i also try to watch documentaries that i have a genuine interest in which gets me back into my normal personality.

    I binge watch interesting YouTube videos, I also like listening to funny podcasts.

    i’m dealing with that too right now but my advice to you is try to do things that spark joy in you, like music or hobbies that you like / used to like! i bake to distract myself and afterwards i feel normal again so i would recommend that too, or cooking if you prefer that.

    this is a really recurring problem for me and usually something that can start breaking me out of an episode is to completely change my environment for a while; spend a couple of days (in a row) leaving my house and doing something that i wouldn’t normally do kind of forces my brain to reset (it’s not a 100% fix, but the reset shocks my brain into starting to work again)

    I do the "if you cant do 100% then just try for 5%" like if you see a cup somewhere its not supposed to be, put up that one cup. Or if you feel like you cant take a full shower, just wash your face. Have a pile of laundry (like me) only put away one or two things. Over time, itll get easier, and you can do more at a time. It takes time, but it makes it worth it. But even if you feel like you cant do anything. Just do a tiny task.
