Just wondered what other people do when you feel low emotionally...
I'm a crier. I go sit alone with depressing music in the dark and cry for an hour or so... then I'm basically alright for a while.
I cry, then treat myself to a bottle of red, cheer up, put some Motown on and then dance and sing, alone I think I then go to bed feeling ok, but can never quite remember.
Even though I don't feel like it, I go for a run and always feel better afterwards. That or reach for a bottle of red...
If I suspect it's caused by low blood sugar, then it's food time. Also, I keep those B-complex vitamins replenished.Otherwise, a nap or just wait it out.The caffeine in coffee or soda also works for me sometimes.
You, Para, have a sensible alternative
After making my previous post, I just now saw on CNN that coffee (the caffeine) can ward away depression.
Life is too short to be upset for too long...
We seem to have some sort of circuit breaker that will kick in when we are subjected to extreme stress for a long period of time. As to chemical-imbalance induced depression, I'm not so sure.
I try to find a way to stop thinking so much. Watching family guy is my current fix.
I yank myself up by the scruff of the neck, put on some feel-good music and start baking up a storm. The smell of something cooking in the oven and a favorite tune usually picks me right up.
I bring out the saxophone and play along with the blues!
I, too, can attest that distraction works.

is there a real connection, or is that all BS?

When I was younger it didn't seem to matter when I drank coffee. I could happily enjoy a cup after the evening meal. Now it seems any caffiene after three o'clock in the afternoon and I'm wide eyed and bushy tailed well...
