Hi everyone... what do you do when you feel super super depressed? Like you do not want to get up or you feel like you hate your life or failing in your life...
I live alone and would love to know more about what people out there recommend and tips.

Hi @gottgetbtr I do not live alone, but I do spend a lot of time alone... my partner travels for work, so I get even more depressed every time he is gone because I feel lonely.
I like to watch the Office or Netflix Originals; however, I also push myself to go outside and get sun (during the nice weather) even if it is to just sit on the front porch. Sitting in the sun makes me feel better all around. Also, you should force yourself to get out of the house when you sense the depression taking over you. I force myself to go to my partner's family's house when he is out of town but I am feeling pretty depressed because being around people - even if I am sitting alone - makes me feel better.

@gottgetbtr I live with my parents right now but will soon live alone till my boyfriend and I get married. However I still hide in my room a lot and don’t want to be around people or do anything! But trying a hobby helps and forcing myself to get up and go out and make plans with people or buy supplies to cook or volunteer at places to help others helps me. I hope this helps. I wish you the best and send hugs.
