Sometimes when I feel depressed, I feel like I need to shop. The act of purchasing stuff gives me something of a high. I make my purchases online because when I’m depressed, I’m not exactly leaving my house much, not even to go shopping.

I’m not particular with what I buy. It could be some gadget or whatnot advertised on my Instagram feed. For example, this pilates ring exercise thingamajig. I got it pretty cheap.  Then there’s Amazon, which makes shopping so easy: all you have to do is press a button, and voila! It’s on its way to your house. Plus, it seems like they carry anything and everything. No, it doesn’t take the pain away, and could even be bad for my bank account, but there it is.

Do you use retail therapy as a way to cope?
