    Iam a person who needs to talk it out. Sometimes I get really low and funky for a few days. But then I get sick of being depressed and my most effective strategy is talking to someone; a friend or therapist. I can bounce out of it by doing something I enjoy like hiking or baking. Retail therapy can be helpful. I like to thrift shop. I made a jar with little pieces of paper that i wrote all the things I like doing and I pull one to help me get motivated. Motivation really is the preventing factor for me often.
