Normal Things to do when you are down in the dumps?

hey all, I need some pick me ups.

What do you do to make you feel better when you are sad?

My brain is tired from the stresses I have been under. I am tired of crying too but it seems that is all I can do.



I want out of this rut, so any tips on how to feel better will be appreciated.


thanks!

I usually spend money.

Get a pet, preferably one you can pet.

Rent a good movie.

Listen to music.

I tried to watch Zoolander last night, I barely cracked a smile. I have never felt this bad before in my life.

Listening to music helps me a lot, as does something made of chocolate

To make me feel a little better my sister, nephew and mother took me to Starbucks tonight. I had a tall Peppermint Hot Chocolate.

My mother bought me a snowflake cookie.

I find talking about it helps. This is a great start. Do you lack hope for happiness. Are you fearful about that big step you're making, are you lonely? Pinpointing what seems to be most insurmountable might be helpful.

For me, it usually comes down to not getting what I want. Or realizing that I haven't gotten what I've thought I deserve. Like a wife or better friends. I hope you feel better, your talents in amassing armies of Yankees should not be wasted

I know a great way of helping it. Exercise! It can be a 45-minute walk or full-on jog, sex (deathbear is always available), or a swim in the beach.

I got laid off from my job. That is my problem. So yeah, all I have been doing for the past 3 days is talking about it. I have my ups and downs. Today feels like more downs than ups.

Just a lot of shit going on. I am glad I talk to friends and family but I still feel bad.

I would welcome sex with open arms.

Where are all my male whores, when I need them.

I cuddle with my pets...watch candles burn and just think...writ poetry...watch "Wayne's World"...read music magazines...work on some of my Ryan Adams projects...

I'm still miserable most of the time lately though, so...I don't know.

My friend's advice:

"A handful of painkillers washed down by a fifth of Jack Daniels."

Umm...don't listen to him though.

those painkillers and JD sounds tempting.

the morning after taking all of that, does not sound tempting.
