Q is for Question

For the letter Q, I am trying out a poll by asking you all a question on how you manage your mental health.  When I’m upset, I tend to keep to myself and need time to recover and get my thoughts together.  I’ll read, watch TV, write, browse the internet, or take a nap.  I have often read that when you’re feeling depressed, you should not isolate yourself.  But most of the time, I need that rest time to myself before I reach out.  What do you do?  Go ahead and vote.  I’m curious to read what other bloggers do.  If you’d like, you can leave a comment and share some specifics about what you do to keep sane.  If not, you can stay anonymous and simply vote.  I wasn’t planning to close the poll, so you’re welcome to come back to browse the poll results and comments over time.

Part of my personal effort, no matter how small or simple, to post more on psychology and/or mental health; and to raise awareness of the mind and decrease stigma of disorders and illnesses related to the mind. Additional posts in this series can be found by clicking on the badge below.

About Claudia

Hi!! My name is Claudia. Blogging is sort of a creative/therapeutic activity for me. I blog about being a wife, mother, student, caseworker, and simply being human through photography, words, music, and blog challenges. Mental illness has also been part of my life, so you'll sometimes find mental health and psychology in my posts. I've dealt with anxiety and depression most of my life. And my husband has bipolar disorder. My hope is that I may show readers that it is possible for people to live positive, productive lives despite mental illness, challenges, or frustrations.
