I relate to this so much. It’s not easy telling close friends or family about our deep emotional state. Sometimes they don’t know exactly what to do or say and it can scare them. If you’re overwhelmed and scared of hurting yourself, seeking a professional therapist seems to be the best choice for you. If that isn’t an option for you, then sometimes making myself do the things that I don’t want to do anymore forces me out of the rut. Getting outside helps a lot too. Or it could just be a simple vitamin that you’re missing too, check with your primary care provider to see if you can get some blood work done.
