I recently became VERY depressed and for the past two days have been making a rebound. I found something that really helped and thought maybe others may feel the same way. I FORCED myself to move. Part of it was to prevent my husband from noticing that all I did was lay in bed. The other part was to just move - physical activity seems to help. I cleaned out a closet and had to really FORCE myself the whole time. It made me really grumpy while I did it - but that was better than being depressed. At the end of it, I felt relaxed and a little bit better. I went to my MD last week because I was sooooo down and he told me that the meds he has me on will work better if I exercise. I have been just doing small things - like taking a ten minute walk a few times a day - and it does help. I really had to push myself to do this but it has been helping. I know it is tough when you have NO energy but if you can get past the first few minutes it will help.
