What do you do, when you feel down?

I am probably not the healthiest when dealing with depression. I tend to just be lethargic and isolate myself.
I hate worrying others so unless I have a close friend poking me I tend to either try to mask it or just avoid it altogether.

you need some relief and sometimes try to be with your trusted ones. i have heard that it could help. not initially but after sometime being alone, you can give it a try
 
Oh.. then how did your family cook chicken tandoor?
Just order stuff... 😅
I don't really like cooking ._.

Haha..I do that with my friends and relatives but not with family.

Fair enough. It is harder still if they live under the same roof. My close family right now is my partner and I try to be honest if it is affecting me badly.
My parents and brother live oversea so I see no much point in telling them unless we're in a videochat; they know me well enough to pick it up even if I try to hide it.

Thank you. It is true.
It is swimming against the current when all I want to do is shrink in my bed and have the day end but I have tried to reach out to my most closest friends.

You are right in hiding it. I have depression and my folks can pick it up from a mile away when it's one of those days. We think it's better not to worry them but they want us to be honest with them and inform them. That's a pure contradiction but it's warm nonetheless

Yeah. That's exactly right. Sooner or later, when they learn and it can be more devastating for them to learn you were keeping it from them for too long.

Yeah. Sometimes it is not even about trusting. Even with my circle I can struggle to word it in a way that make sense and fight against the overwhelming feeling that I am making a mountain out of a glass of water, specially when I also know they are going through something heavy.

That being said, I am getting two weeks off work very soon which I am hoping will help me immensely, so yay!
