What helps me battle that feeling of staying put and doing nothing is just trying to get in the frame of mind of saying I can do this and nothing can stop me. Easier said than done I know. It's so hard to overcome self-doubt but you just have to believe that you can overcome anything. Attitude plays a major role. Battling depression isn't something that fades away.It's something that has to be maintained and when it comes you have to say No I will not let this control my life or what I do.
