    Secondhand Serenade sings this song, its called "Is There Anybody Out There?" I think it speaks loud and clear what I feel most the time... even when I'm not officially badly depressed:

    You can say goodbye,
    To all the things that you have ever known.
    You can say goodbye,
    And leave inside the life that you have grown.
    What's the point,
    You try to start from scratch,
    but get let down,

    You can say goodbye,
    Just to realize there's no-one left around.
    So what am I fighting for.

    Tell me
    Is there anybody out there,
    Am I swimming through this empty sea alone,
    Am I looking for an answer
    Or am I trying to find a way to get back home.
    Is there anybody out there,
    Would you hear me if I screamed or if I cried,
    I'm looking for an answer
    And just trying to find a way to survive.

    You can live or die,
    Without the chance to find out what your worth,
    You can live or die,
    And never find the one that she'd deserve,
    You can walk alone,
    And live inside the shadows in your heart,

    You can say goodbye
    Or live and find out you've been alone right from the start
    So what am I fighting for.

    Tell me
    Is there anybody out there,
    am I swimming through this empty sea alone,
    Am I looking for an answer,
    Or am I trying to find a way to get back home.
    Is there anybody out there,
    Would you hear me if I screamed or if I cried,
    I am looking for an answer
    And just trying to find a way to survive.

    Never thought I would end up all alone,
    Every day I am feeling further away from home,
    I can't catch my breath,
    but I am holding on.

    Is there anybody out there,
    is this the last time I have to say goodbye,
    Am I staring at my future,
    Is it time to take charge of my life,

    Is there anybody out there
    Am I swimming through this empty sea alone,
    Am I looking for an answer,
    or am I trying to find a way to get back home,
    Is there anybody out there,
    Would you hear me if I screamed or if I cried,
    I am looking for an answer,
    And just trying to find a way to survive,
    a way to survive,
    and I am holding on.

    (end of song)

    Please someone tell me.. how do you get out of this particular frame of mind... its like a web that just stays.. sometimes its not that bad and you can ignore it for the most part.. but then sometimes.. it just grows... and you can't even breathe..

    Think of something else. Do something, mostly I forget about these feelings when I do something more complicated. That way I focus on something else, so there's no space left for anything else. Or I simply listen to music. I make that web stay away, if only a bit, if only for a few minutes. I have a diary where I write all the bad feelings in, every time I feel really bad I write in there, no one will ever read it, so I can write anything in there, even the things I can't talk to anyone about. It helps me clear up my mind a bit. I hope you find something useful in anything of that ^^ *hugs you* best wishes to you!

    I do have methods I use for distraction: writing poetry, playing with my dogs, playing board games, gaming, walking, swimming, listening to music, and relaxation techniques.. i use essential oils to help me as well..

    but that overall feeling i described.. never goes away

    Pets are usually great mates if you need to forget these feelings for a while, at least that's true for me. I think my dog likes my depressive phases xD I always play with her then and I pet her until she falls asleep : )

    "Is there anybody out there.....?" Does that mean a human person in a physical body, in order to be one's white knight in shining armour (to coin a phrase) - or does it mean a spiritual personality like God being out there, but invisible to the naked eye? Maybe I haven't read all the song properly.....sorry
