  • This is a great article, right up until the last paragraph. As someone whose depression is part of ptsd, comments such as that people 'often' experience 'enormous positive growth' from very traumatic events is a little too much pressure when coping can be pretty tough.
    Thankfully, the tips in the numbered points are a lot more helpful... - 2/22/2015 9:29:08 AM
    Many thanks for such a wise, resourceful, and insightful article! It's odd how guys head for beer 'n' pizza while women, for wine and Ben & Jerry's (I can see the latter, but alcohol - for me - is a 100%-guaranteed depressant). Countering rumination is pivotal, isn't it? - 9/19/2014 8:33:11 PM
    This is another article I am going to have to keep and refer to often! Thank you! - 9/19/2014 5:59:51 PM
    I agree with SarafromJersey. It's not worth it to eat junk food when depressed. I had to learn just this week to start eating healthy veggies. I find when I eat healthy, even though I feel sad, my body reacts better to the healthy food. When I eat junk food when I'm sad, I end up feeling worse.

    Thank you for writing this article. Very helpful. - 9/19/2014 1:43:10 PM
  • This is very true. Just last night, I wasn't feeling all that well, and have been stressed all week because of work. I got into the mindset that I didn't have the "energy" to eat well or work out, and the whole day spiraled out of control (I'm talking about a slice of cake AND a milkshake). While, at the time it felt like a well-deserved break, by the end of the night I felt sick, and then regretful. Anytime emotional eating occurs, I never feel good about it, and the 'euphoria' of indulging in junk food is so temporary, it's not worth it. - 9/19/2014 1:01:29 PM
