Re: Feeling Down...
Dear Larz77, Like Liz says, I look to my funnier friends, for amusing books & movies (DVD's if I don't feel like braving the crowds). Sometime I just look for anything I find lovely or transcendent, music, mostly. Sometimes poetry.
In short, anything that takes one out of oneself a bit. A nice cup of tea. Giving yourself permission to rest & nap, as needed.
Mustn't forget doggies, either (or cats, or ???). If you're an animal lover, that is... Make a pet-owning friend pay you a visit if you enjoy pets but don't have one of your own. When I first moved almost 2 states away, after school, I used to borrow pets for my mental health. That was years before I got Dx'ed, but I still remember the void those dear little "loaners" filled. All best wishes, Vee (P.S. Check in again soon, OK?)
