You will feel better Tara.......try to let the depression take its course. Call the helpline or someone close, they will talk you through it. I do that when I am feeling a little down and vulnerable......stay strong.....Jo

When I’m feeling down, I tend to think in future.

If I succumb to my urges, will that make depression better or worse?

Your brain is tricking you into thinking the depression will dissolve if you get that buzz from gambling. Whatever buzz you get is only temporary. Think of everything that would happen after. That’s what’s keeping me in check. Please stay strong and fight the urges. And try and confide with a loved one.
