    what Jack said.

    +
    I have been heavily bi-polar since I was a little kid (n=1) and after trying out everything the only things that consistenly worked for me where: DHA (from raw fish only! supplements do nothing for me), Cold Showers, Walks (lots of them!), Sunlight (of course), being self forgiving (work on this everyday), but most of all..... EXPRESSION! you have to find a way to creatively express your sorrow. I cannot state how important this is! for me this is music composition and improvisational techniques but maybe it is gardening for you... or maybe a certain sport or game ? i do not know, i do not know you.. do you ? explore, challenge your brain constantly. You can do it! Love.

    ps. listening to classically oriented music can be very therapeutic.

    Thanks remo. I know that I bounce around from thing to thing and get bored easily. ADD behaviors. Since I was a kid. Never formally diagnosed.looking back now I see I had difficulties in kindergarten! I'm 54 and finding work I enjoy has been a huge issue.and financially supporting myself.
    I like to chant and listening to music -deva premal and snatam
    Kaur uplifts me. I need to find more creative outlets... I don't really know me. That's a huge clue to this depression

    I was able to sit outside in sun( upstate ny) for
    Over 30 mins today. We received over 2 ft of snow tues- wed. And just digging out.

    what about dancing and singing? Do you ever just put on some music you love and dance? sing at the top of your lungs?

    Have you seen the music thread here? music is so healing.

    Just sitting at the ocean does it for me ......my mind totally empties and I just take it all in ....and can do so for hours it seems.

    I seem to need that almost as much as breathing. Even if it is cold and windy - even better

    Mother Nature has deep lessons for all of us ..... are we listening?

    When I was a kid I figured out 2 tried and true ways to happiness:
    1) Do something nice for someone
    2) Make someone laugh

    Having said that, I have heard chromium is great for depression - chromium is great for blood sugar:

    Chromium treatment of depression.
    McLeod MN, Golden RN.
    Abstract
    Eight patients with refractory mood disorders received chromium supplements and described dramatic improvements in their symptoms and functioning. In several instances, single-blind trials confirmed specificity of response to chromium. Side-effects were rare and mild, and most commonly included enhanced dreaming and mild psychomotor activation. To our knowledge, this is the first case series describing the response to chromium monotherapy. The putative antidepressant effects of chromium could be accounted for by enhancement of insulin utilization and related increases in tryptophan availability in the central nervous system, and/or by chromium's effects on norepinephrine release.

    Cold showers make me totally high too:)

    But really, I don't know how you people stand living in these cold/rainy places - I just implode without the sun - maybe a sun lamp and/or UV lightbulb? I use a reptile light sometimes when it's cloudy - 18 degrees? I would die... :)
