    What is one thing (or more!) that you have done today to manage your depression or anxiety? Let's share - maybe we can get ideas from another community member. It can be as simple as taking your meds or as complex as making a doctor's appointment.

    I just took a walk around the block. It was only 12 minutes or so but my mood has lifted.

    Anyone else want to share anything - big or small?

    I went to taco bell with a friend. It was much better than hospital food and I had a good time.

    I took my meds and I helped put up the Christmas tree.

    I worked for a little while today, around teenagers. Wasn't to bad, helped lift the fog for a bit.

    Went to the opening of a local art program, sat in the sun on a bench on the main street of this small town that I live in. Beatiful old stone courthouse that has been transformed into a center for the arts. Enjoyed the art, the sun, the breeze, the trees in all of their fall colors.

    Boots - Taco Bell - YUM. I'm sure hospital food can't throw down a bean burrito or crunchy taco like the Bell my two faves

    lexismom - can you believe it's Christmas tress season already???

    Do you guys do real or artificial? I'd prefer artificial (my allergies to a real tree make my eyes puff up and itch). But my husband and the girls like real - we're getting ours this weekend.

    Survivor - I'm glad you live in a place with sun this time of year! Some of my friends are experiencing grey skies and rain for days at a time...Yeah for sunshine!
    lexismom11 replied to Haylen_WebMD_Staff's response:
    We use an artificial tree so we have to put all of the branches up and fix them. That's a real pain. Once that is don, it is a matter of putting decorations up. It didn't take that much time to put it up like I thought it would. I wouldn't be able to put up with the allergies if I had them.
