How do some of you deal with your depression? I was divorced after 26 years of marriage. This will be my first Christmas after all those years without my wife. I can't seem to get my mind off things without her. I have dealt with depression since the mid 1970s' and still don't know how to fight it off. I take Zoloft and other meds, but they don't keep me from wanting to sink lower. I see my shrink in mid January and need to talk to him about it, but that's a long way off. I am at the point where I'm wanting to cut on myself or worse. Does anybody have any magic formula for dealing with the daily down-and-outs?
