I've been having a tough time at work recently and have been tootling along coping pretty well-ish. It's not just me; my lovely line manager has shed a few tears over the horrible way I've been treated, bless her. Many years ago I was very successfully treated for depression and have done a bit of reading around the subject. I have had some rough patches, but tend to spring back fairly quickly. I've hit a grey patch this week and am letting things get to me. Feeling tearful etc. I don't want to go back to taking medication - I'm sure this is a short-lived bad patch and I want to try more 'natural' ways of boosting my serotonin if at all possible. I've done it before and probably chatted about it on here too. So, remind me- what works? I'm going to do some exercise - brisk walking I will be nibbling cheese and nuts for the tryptophan Bought a Sudoku book today ????????????????
