What do you do when you're depressed?

Well, I tend to be depressed often, so at times I end up having to do a lot more than I would like. But for the most part, when I'm at my lowest point I tend to sleep a lot, that is the most obvious escape. Then other things I do a lot is watch shows or movies I like on tv or dvd, play a computer game, spend time on here. Lately I have been on here whenever I possibly could be, so it's easy to say that I've probably been on here while depressed and while I'm just kinda neutral. I know sometimes late at night I tend to go through a somewhat manic/hyperactive cycle, and since getting active here it's really a relief, because instead of my head running a million miles an hour, I tend to post a lot more here when I'm in that state, and that is also sometimes when I write my longest posts. It definitely does help, even if I'm not talking about things that are on my mind, it does seem to level me out a little by focusing on one discussion at a time.
