Good Saturday afternoon BITOG faithful. So, I am 38 and attached but sometimes very depressed. Dunno if it's work or something else. Any ideas to help improve this? I do go for walks at local park often and ice skate at ice rink nearby and shoo some pucks at nets as I'm a diehard Penguins fan


Thank you all in advance

Maybe I should buy some vintage records to help me relax more

Take stock of the things you are thankful for. Im sure there are more than things that make you depressed. You make many people happy here with your C&P's. Everyday is a gift and there are many people worse off than you. If you feel things are really bad, seek professional help. Theres no shame in asking for help. I recently underwent open heart surgery at 49 and now have PTSD which I am getting help with.

I would talk to your doctor maybe he/she can give you some advice. Not being a dick but a forum is no place for this sort of thing, bad advice can have consequences.

Find a therapist and psychologist. If you've felt this way for a long time, it may be a chemical imbalance.

Are you sleeping enough? That's huge!

Are you eating well? Just as important as getting enough quality sleep

Are you exercising? This is behind the above two, but still very important

Thanks and Kamele0n: I'm looking at doing more skating and possible hockey playing with friends

Try some fish oil for a month.

Maybe you got very little sunlight this past winter and have cabin fever.

I take 3 or 4 fish oil capsules from Walmart every day. These work as well for me as antidressants. Your mileage may vary, but, it is cheap to try and safe. No side effects except a fishy taste sometimes.

Don't worry, Adam, SPRING IS COMING! The end of this endless winter can't come soon enough! Then it'll be motorcycle and convertible season! Try to catch a good comedy this weekend, laughter is the best medicine.
