When I am not doing well I am better with animals than with people. Mostly dogs in my case. True, when I can't make contact with people because I'm stuck in myself, I also have a difficult time having contact with my own dog. Only superficially. But f.i. with dogs that are not my own the contact that I can make is enough.

I have always thought about being with animals instead of people. Maybe you know people who have dogs and you can sometimes walk their dog? It's excercise, you get out and you have contact with a living creature without having to put on a socially accepted face. As long as you are kind and fair to the animal it really doesn't care.

I dealt with depression alone for many years. There was nobody I felt I could talk to about it. It was very hard, and did not help anything. I strongly encourage you to find a support group, a church, or a therapist- all of these if possible.
