  1. I try to write a lot, that often helps me a lot to clear my mind. I listen to a lot of music, either some that is in tune with my mood, or some relaxing music, or something that can cheer me up, depends on what I feel like I need. Sometimes I feel like being alone and people make me feel drained, so I am on my own, but sometimes it’s better if I can talk to someone so then I do if I can. I often escape into sleep if it’s possible and if I’m badly depressed. And of course if Misha’s willing, I spend a lot of time with him.

  2. It can vary for me. Mostly I need my own quiet time and sometimes when on my own I will play some cd’s.
    A walk in nature at times.

    But as I experienced recently quiet time did not work well for me and I needed a little company.

  3. Bad mental health days are not fun. I have been doing “OK” lately…well for the most part. When I do have the bad days though…it’s better if I just stay away from people. I’m negative, bitchy & irritated with everything on those days. So I sometimes write or try to read…I love reading but don’t do it as much as I used to…probably because of this thing called the internet. lol Or I binge watch Netflix or sleep. I used to use food as a coping mechanism…that’s how I got to weigh this much. It’s an effort to not do that still, but am working on it. I wasn’t on last night to read your post, but read it this morning. I’m glad you’re feeling better.:)

  4. To be honest I usually get high or write poems and stories about how I feel. Please check out my blog its new and I’m trying to get my writing seen to gain feedback, views or opinions, good or bad lol.

    Thanks, Peace.


  5. I reflect. I meditate on life and often end up writing. I read. I connect and share with others. I reach out for support, not expecting others to solve my problem but rather seeking their perspective. Most of all, I hold tight to hope. Never lose hope.
