I was diagnosed with depression at 7 and didn't start medication until I was 22. I'd love to find ways to help me on my tough days besides medication.

      @MichealB yessss crocheting and knitting are sooo nice. You can take them anywhere and they really help me when I’m having a really emotional moment

      The adult coloring books are great.

      My hobbies have helped me. I crotchet and paint. My hobbies have given me an outlet for those feelings and I get something cool at the end.

        @MichealB how did you get into your hobbies? i’m having a hard time finding motivation or things that interest me to do

          @packersfan95 I actually started mine in high school but I usually do them while I'm watching TV or just don't want to get out of bed. It makes me feel better because I'm actually doing something. Crotchet would be a good one. It's easy doesn't cost much (I've bought yarn at the dollar store) and you can make a blanket to cuddle with

      I find routines to be a life saver, or "rules" for yourself. For me, I must do my laundry every Saturday. Even if I don't fold it, I at least wash it and my sheets. I also tell myself I must sweep and mop at some point over the weekend, just whenever my mental and physical health allows

        @Sunflower.System that's such a great idea! I do something similar with showering and washing my hair
