both can help. are you seeing a pdoc for meds? are you in therapy? meds help fix the chemicals in our brains. therapy teaches us how to cope in ways that don't bring us down. doing fun things can help raise us out of the darkness. welcome to the board.

slik is right...sometimes it takes a combination of varying therapies. have you been trying other distractions? such as painting or listening to favorite music?

I would just say that there is a diffence between being sad & clinical depression (what you take meds for). We can't diagnose you. You need to see a doctor (preferably a psychiatrist) and let them diagnose you.
