SHOPPING always picks me up especially if I buy clothes for myself or my daughter.

I rarely get depressed. But when I do, I try to figure out why I am feeling blue. If it is because of something that I can change, then I make a decision to change it. Most of the time when I feel sad and blue, I just go through it. I take to my bed for the evening and write in my journal, have a good cry, sometimes listen to sad music and just wallow in my sadness. It sounds depressing, but it works for me. Suppressing my feelings of depression only causes me to break down at inappropriate times or worse, binge on junk food. (Yuck!) I find that when I allow myself to feel the depression and go through it, I tend to recover and feel like my old self alot sooner than when I suppress my feelings of sadness.

It also helps that I remember that it is perfectly normal to feel depressed from time to time and that it is not a permanent state. I say to myself, "This too shall pass!"

To pick me up and get me feeling better... Well, there is nothing better than chatting with a friend or my sister (my best friend) or turning up the tunes and singing real loud, way off key (on purpose, of course).

What picks me up?... gawd... I'm still waiting...lol Hopefully he will have strong arms and a big heart. And if I am too heavy... he can just lie down beside me and cuddle...heheheh
Seriously though... sometimes listening to doo wap or oldies music helps. When I have the time... painting helps lift me up.

I crawl into bed and turn up the electric blanket on High on the opposite side of the bed so the pillow gets good and hot, then cuddle with the pillow, call a friend on the phone and have a good cry until I fall to sleep... imagining the whole time that I'm not really alone.

I'm told I snore. *giggles*

Coming on Large Friends and reading the Forum helps.
What do you do when no-one is around to hold you though Toketee?

Being held safely and securely in the arms of a dear friend. Not being in a hurry to go anywhere or do anything, just sitting there, being cuddled, allowing you to show weakness and cry all those unshed tears while they stroke your hair and rub your back, quietly "shushing" away your blues as they whisper in your ear that everything is going to get better in time.

For me it's chatting with friends and getting perspective from that. I can count on my friends to tell it to me straight. That and listening to music. For some reason, AC/DC, Poison, Def Leppard, Motley Crue, etc, usually perks me back up. I guess it's 'cause it's music I listened to as a teen.
