hey, I'm new. Does anyone know what I should do when I can tell my mental health is getting really terrible again but I'm not at the pont where I cant do anything? I'm already in EMDR and communicative therapy. Im not on any anti depressants or other meds at the moment. kinda just feeling hopeless.

      Ok so I am only saying this, because I fought for YEARS to not be on meds. Sometimes you need medication to help you out of the hopelessness. You can have all of the tools to fix something that is broken, but your tools don't matter if what's broken is in fire

      Develop habits. When you feel like crap, do something productive. Anything. Make a list. Whatever you don't complete on the list, do the next day. This takes a lot of time and devotion, but it helps in the long run. It feels good knowing I can still get stuff done when I'm not feeling well. Plus, with being able to see what I can accomplish when I feel like crap, it boosts my moral to feel that I can do anything when I have a good day. What has also helped me is learning about my condition. Knowing the ins and outs of depression stabilized me in so many ways. I went from thinking that I was a monster or a freak to a person with a condition that is treatable. Not only that, but there are many people with my condition. I'm not alone. I hope this helps.

      Try not to close yourself off from other people, reach out to friends and see if they can offer comfort or distraction. It may not help much, but my friends are helping me get through a really hard time right now. Do something productive, or maybe just something entertaining. Most importantly, if it starts becoming too much, reach out for help. Maybe get on medication again, if it helps. Talk to your doctor about it. But while it’s still manageable try just distraction. Hope it helps! And stay strong
