Living with a depressed person
I'm currently living with my older sister, who is bipolar and struggles with PTSD. She has her good days and I love being around her then, but at times she can be very emotionally draining. If I don't find ways to release emotional buildup, it gives me migraines and stomach problems. I have candles with scents that are supposed to be good for this, like sage and lavender, so whenever her moods start to drag me down, I light one and make a pot of chamomile tea. Between the calming scent and the tea, most of the time, she calms down. And it gets rid of the knotted feeling in my stomach. If I know I can't talk her through something, I'll put on a funny show or movie she loves to shift her focus on something else.
