emoticon STARGIRL09 and emoticon to SparkPeople and the team...Nice to have you with us on the journey to a healthier lifestyle.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

Hi and welcome to the team - we're glad you've joined us.

I take medications and supplements prescribed by my doctor to help with the depression, but they don't work that well. I try to distract myself with reading or some other activity that I can do so I don't focus so much on my depressed feelings. Some people find exercise helps, or just talking a walk outside in nature. I try to remind myself of all the things I have to be grateful for, but honestly, it's still a struggle. My heart goes out to you and I hope you find help. The good thing about this team is that people understand.

Hi Becca - welcome to our Team.

Have you received help re coping techniques with the Depression and the Autism? If not, and I suggest that you talk with your Dr and ask for a referral to people who can assist you.

My grandson is a diagnosed autistic and so is my great nephew. Both were diagnosed at a young age, and are only 11 (g/son) and 9 now. Both have had great benefit from qualified help.

Welcome to the team! I assume you were diagnosed by a doctor -- were you prescribed any meds? I'm on buproprion (generic for Wellbutrin) & it helps immensely. I also take Vit D3 -- 4,00 - 5,000 per day. That really helps too.

Diet also helps -- leave the sugar & alcohol alone! There's a book called Food & Mood that has more in depth help with diet & depression.

Good luck! Keep trying different things until you find what works for you!!

emoticon to the team!!! I get myself lost in a book, movie, or TV. That's what I do when it's so bad that walking or yoga don't help.

Hey there, I am new to the team group and I suffer with anxiety disorder with autism with it. I was diagnosed 6 years back, late diagnosis.

I have times where I feel down in myself and get rather depressed; asking ''why am I here?'' ''why am I even in the world?'' stuff like that...

Music helps but only for so long...

What do you all do to cope with your depression?
