I try to tell myself it is just a symptom to depression and it will pass...it always does. I keep a small notebook to track my moods so when I feel the sad part will never end, I can look back and see, yep, I had good days. I get outside as much as I can..even if it's just sitting under my favorite maple tree listening to the birds, watching the horses, etc. Nature and animals kind of seem to be healing to most who commented.
