> I worked a lot with a DBT therapist, doing various mindfulness exercises, including, but not limited to, meditation. I found they helped me COPE with depression (I learned to let thoughts and plans for suicide go), but they didn't boost my mood. But, for me, coping was very important because I become so suicidal when depressed. My DBT therapist urged me to just remain neutral about my depression; if all I could do was lay in bed, then that was all I could do - not to begin the destructive self-talk - this will never get better, I can't stand this, etc. So it didn't make the depression go away (time and drugs have helped a lot), but it did make it more tolerable, for me.

That TOTALLY describes how I deal with my depression (bipolar). I'm glad you found something that helps you.
