I haven't spoken in awhile but I'm alive, and suffering heavily from some type of burnout or Low from depression.

I wish I could tell my mom "I can't do this" without her getting mad at me that I can't do this. I can barely get out of bed or suppress the urge to do something I'd regret.

she tells me that I have to do school work because it's coming out of her pocket, and I know that, but I can just barely enjoy the things I used to. I want to tell her that I can't keep forcing myself to do this, I need help, why can't you see that? but I don't know how. I'm a senior, it's my final year, I can do this at my own pace because I'm no longer in public school.

but it's not helping me. it's not. I need help from people that know what it's like to be this down to properly explain to her why I can't do this and keep doing this. please.

    Hi, I think you should split your tackle into two parts. First, explain to your mother that it's not that you don't want to, but that you can't, just not able, and secondly, ask for help. Be it from your family, your friends or even psychological help. Any help to get out of the situation would be appreciated. Asking for help is not shameful, on the contrary, it shows strength.
