other than medications for depression, what are some other things do you think I should try?

      It kind of depends on your source of depression. Is it a chemical imbalance? Then I think certain foods and supplements can help tons! If it's a different source, like self imagine, then self care helps a ton- like dressing up for fun! Music helps a ton!

      Music! I have a playlist of songs that sound happy but are about sad things

      If you can, rescue a animal. I have cats and I swear they are my reasons for doing almost everything now. There are always animals that will be willing to warm your heart and home. Airing out the house, moving furniture around, a good long bath, clean bedsheets, and blanket nests are always winners for me.

        @Chaoswithinorder I also bought a brand new bed set today, I can't wait to set it up...I just need help because we plan to rearrange the entire room before I put it on the bed

        @Chaoswithinorder i have 9 dogs and 2 cats...it's stressful for me, which I think also links into my depression. I love them, but they overwhelm me.

        @Mordred I have been enjoying reading, but it's so doggone hot...and I can't keep my kids outside in the heat that long. 🥺🥺🥺

          @dream9792 you could always make a nice sitting spot by a window to read in, that way you can still get some natural light
