This may seem like an odd thing to do, but I video record myself when I am depressed. I set up my Sony on a tripod and I sit in front of the camera and talk. It is usually a long ramble about how I feel, which may be a "bitch session" or complaints, or my dreary outlook on life. At times that I thought I might have a problem with alcohol (I go back and forth on this still), I would discuss that at length. Then I would save the video to my computer and watch it at a later date, so I had a fresh perspective (I didn't want to be down when watching). I can get some incites on myself in this way. I analyze myself, and it helps me to figure out my future in a new light. Has anyone done this, or does it seem strange?
