I suffer from depression but it's not as strong as it was when I was younger. I still get Seasonal Affective but I make sure I get myself outside even in the cold. Taking time for self-care has really helped!
I was writing this when @Dazzal was too lol Have you tried one of those Lights? They didn't help me but I know of others who have had their mood lifted.

No, I haven't tried one of those lights @ZandraJoi I don't suffer that much and I am not the type to stay in bed. I am still up and about doing things. Sounds like you manage well, in spite of depression.

Yes. My psychiatrist actually had the bright idea of taking me off of my depression medication for a while because she conferred with other co-workers; they decided that since my sleeping medications and my mood stabilizer had anti-depressant elements in them that it would work for me. She did this because she didn't want to guinea pig me anymore when it came to finding the right anti-depressant medication. I had tried two medications in the course of two months or something like that, I can't remember how long it was. Anyway, that didn't work because I got severely depressed and I made three attempts on my life. I felt like I was filled with darkness and I couldn't snap out of it. I have suffered with it my whole life, but it had never gotten that bad. Thankfully, I have a medication that works for me so that is all behind in the past. :)
