Maybe you should try doing other things. Depression is a phase in anyone's life and you're the only one who could 'get over it' or 'suffer the consequences forever'. When I'm depressed. I usually just lie down and sleep the whole day. Which I see is the opposite of yours. But I always try to think beyond the depression. I usually give myself at most 2days to stay depressed, then I leap up and find something to keep me positive. Ranging from eating chocolates (which studies show could lead to a sense of happiness thus helping conquer depression) to doing some exercise. I also try reading motivational books and stories. You can also try watching positive movies, or documentaries of hope like "In Pursuit of Happyness" or "The Secret" But if you've been depressed for a long time now either you could slap yourself to reality or you should consult a doctor. It pays to see symptoms early so that it would be easier to treat. Good luck! Life indeed is too short to keep on moping about the things that make you sad. There are lots of people who are SAD in this world.. so be UNIQUE, be Happy! =)

Instead of focusing on the negative. Find a few good things about life even if it is as simple as well, I have milk in the refrigerator and work off of that. And most importantly get some fresh air, it really really helps.

How do you know that you are depressed ? You might as well go for normal health check up or for thyroid ? I am of the view that all that keeps us low is not depression.Read a some articles at www.sripedia.blogspot.com and www.letusspeak.blog.co.in and other sites that discuss the issue of depression rather than the intricacies of depression.

Oh maybe it has something to do with the cosmic as I have been a little depressed over the last few days and I rang a few people to cheer myself up and the people i rang her going through the same thing, I fixed myself up by going shopping, I hope you can pull yourself out of it in some way, i don't know what you like to get you out but i hope you come up with something...but remember you are not alone in this...
