Don't sweat the small stuff....and it's all small stuff.

Depression is a bitch. I don't know if anyone feels the same as me, but depression just makes me feel numb, empty, no emotions. I feel neither sadness nor happiness and recently the only thing that's keeping me between the lines is writing. I never thought that writing would give me some much joy. If i never found out steemit, i would never even consider writing. Thanks for the wise words, Upvoted and resteemed.

Writing has always been an outlet for me as well. I wrote poetry a ton when I was a "lost" teen. I have even written a few songs. I never realize im even depressed until I am super low. Thanks for the upvote and resteem. I am glad writing has been beneficial to you.

The only way I tackle depression is track it down, -exactly what makes me feel depressed and exactly which thought or action or situation triggered it. Once I have done that it always seems to leave. The situation may still be there but the feeling of depression is out the door. Sometimes I will think of something so briefly while cooking or shopping or working... and get distracted and the thought is gone but the depression is there... I push my self to go back in my head and find the trigger... for me that relives the depression.. not necessarily the situation, I still may have to work through that but the crippling feeling leaves...I have used this method for 28 years. Thanks for listening :)
