    and for real reason, thing is i really need to be in a good mood for these exams cos otherwise i know i'll make more mistakes and be more lazy with revision.

    any ideas on how to get out before it sinks in?
    and what do you usually do when your depressed to make yourself feel better?

    Well, it depends on the cause of your depression. If it's not really a big deal and it's this 'feeling down' thing that pretty much happens to all of us, just listen to some good music or watch some funny shows or movies. It'll go away.
    But if it's becouse of a deeper reason, it's a bit tougher to make it go away.

    Try doing some unserious things, hang with some friends or something and dont think too much.
    That usually works.

    Yeah, just be care-free for a while and don't think much. One of my friends once told me that sometimes in the river of life, you've got to let loose and let the flow take you with itself, instead of trying to get yourself somewhere.

    I'm kind of similar at the moment. My first exam is on saturday, attended a single lecture for it this year, so who knows how i'll go, should start studying soon but can't yet because i still have major assignments due. And at the moment i'm just drifting into my weird moods and getting annoyed at everything. I guess it'll pass, i'm not sure what the real issue is, think I'm just lonely or something, but that's kind of silly because i have people. I'll get over it.

    Find out what you're really getting depressed about and deal with it? Or just give it a few days and if it really is nothing then you'll come right. Try just talking about it, whether it's to a friend, here, or in a journal or something, just start writing and see what comes out, maybe you'll clear your mind and start to realise what's going on up there.

    I usually listen to music, and play some mindless computer game for ages. And talk to friends, if i can and if i don't feel too bad about doing so, but i can say silly things when i'm not so happy, so i have to keep control and not let that get out of hand!

    I have tried many things over the years to curb my depression and (mostly)my anger. What I have found to work is the following - Meditation, music(Preferably of the brutal DM kind, in my case), and being with the people I love. Talking about it also does a world of good.

    I don't really have any problems with anger as I don't really get angry. But yeah, as for depression for minor reasons, listening to music and talking to someone about it do the trick for me. But I really don't have anyone to talk to about this stuff, so it's mainly music for me.

    I would recommend doing something constructive as well. A hobby or craft that you enjoy doing. I like writing, and that usually helps to take my mind off whatever's troubling me. Find something that works for you.

    For me, its more often anger than depression.
    I usually dont get depressed since i dont take life seriously and probably never will :p

    That's a good suggestion, too.

    Yes! I forgot all about that. One of the best things to do when depressed! I usually will either write music, or play guitar(usually both) - lately I've been focusing all of my anger into my offensive(to say the least) joke BM band. :D

    If you don't take life seriously, what's there to get angry about. :D

    That makes more sense, indeed.

    Here's my cure:

    Buy long rpg, preferably Morrowind, Baldur's Gate 2, or Xenosaga... buy controlled substance... buy Maudlin of the Well's dual release Bath and Leaving Your Body Map... buy a lock... buy some food... board yourself up for a week.

    Light anxiolytics like tianeptin will help you. Don't forget: it's never too soon to begin; you'll surely need them later, so why don't get the good habits right now?
