When I'm depressed I'm not hungry. I eat toast with pate and nibble. I drink bottled smoothies. I drink milkly hot choc with marshmallows. I feel cold so I put the heating on. I need comfort so I have a blanket on the chair. It reminds me I'm not well. I buy myself cheap flowers to remind me I'm not well. This helps me to not criticise myself. I don't like noise so I have silence some of the day. I light a candle and put the lamp on even in the day. I do everything slowly but I do keep trying to do things like take the rubbish out. I write letters. I write in my journal/book. I find writing about past depressions easier when depressed. When manic I can write about past manic times. I eat what I fancy like biscuits and tea. I watch much loved films. I mood chart every day. I try to remember in the evening I will feel better. Music can make me suicidal so that stays off. It do dissociate into dream land and allow this for a short while only.
