      Same. Since I can remember being a child I have dealt with anxiety and depression. I cope with keeping myself busy. When I feel down I like to give extra attention to my daughter. I push myself to get up and play with her because she always makes me at least smile. I also like to take time out for myself. I’m a cannabis smoker and it keeps me calm. I also try to keep myself organized. I personally don’t do well mentally when my living space is cluttered. I also have a planner I use to keep things wrote down in that’s important. More things I write down the more things aren’t stuck in my head. My brain stays cluttered with thoughts. I also dont allow myself to nap during the day. And I am a very routine person it tends to keep my days calmer and less stressful.

      I have been dealing with depression since I was in highschool and I still haven't figured out how to deal with everyday.

      I know what you're going through, Michelle. I have seen for myself how anxiety and depression can severely affect my thinking. Hang in there, get counseling if you can, and look to this community for support. We are here for each other. Feel free to message me anytime if you need to talk. It may take me some time to get back, but I will. Sending you all the love and hugs. ❤️
