Me! Completing something gives you a dopamine rush, that's why you feel happy and accomplished, and dopamine is a neurotransmitter. Exercise is good too, because of endorphins.

Other things I've noticed that always help a bit: hugs, helping others/giving gifts (especially in secret), cleanliness (oddly enough), singing loudly, figuring out and acknowledging the underlying problem, doing the thing you really want to not do.

Underlying problem for me is PTSD Mixed with bipolar disorder... But you're right! And cleanliness really does help!

Even with PTSD and Bipolar there can be a "trigger". It's usually not what you think you're upset about, but it can be related. One time I got really upset at my roommate
for avoiding me, but in reality I just missed my family. (She wasn't avoiding me, just hated being touched when she was depressed, opposite of me.)

Oh I know-the wrong smell, the wrong sounds, any of that can trigger me. This instance of depression was brought about by a coworker who'd just found out I lived in Sudan during the Darfur Genocide's early days. All kinds of questions I didn't want to ever think about again... Ah well, I'm good now (ish), and yeah!

Ooh, yeah, that's not fair. People can be so mean even if they aren't meaning to.

people are so ignorant when it comes to it... Worse part is they don't even realize it.

Oh, he meant nothing by it--he's just... Well, he has no tact. I'm doing much better, and I'm in a better place. Basically, I ended up telling him "I've been married nearly 12 years, and I literally last week started to open up to my wife about this stuff." He got the message!

The fact that he meant nothing by it doesn't make it 'better' it just doesn't make it worse ;) Glad he got the message and you're doing better :)

Oh no, it still sucks. But he seems to have learned, and tonight we had a nearly 4 hour chat about everything BUT Sudan (work has us come in, and do nothing for 4 hours while the factory is under repairs). He's a great guy, so yeah, it's not fine, but it's fine, ya know what I mean? lol

Now, BED!
