it's been so fucking hard y'all. I'm in such a deep deep depression. I just got out of session with my therapist and she says I need to talk to my support system and let them know how bad I'm feeling but that is such a scary thing and it feels like it will take so much energy that I don't have. I've been sleeping 13+ hours a day and im still so tired that it's hard to stay awake. I don't want to move I don't want to eat I don't want to do anything. my therapist also said I need to start doing more things. even if it's just getting out of bed and washing my face. it's so overwhelming to even think to get out of bed.

Hey, I understand how you feel. I also had such periods that the bed was the only safe place for me. I would cry a lot, sleep the rest of the time and not be able to function. I wasn't able to eat, meet people, or go to work. What I learned is that I have to talk to the people around me and explain the situation to them. Their willingness to help me was amazing and also made me feel like I had a support system that would be there for me to pick me up when I fell. I think you should talk to the people close to you and tell them.
I have told my support system how I feel but nothing they do helps me. I feel like it's never going to end
I have found that, for me, I find a speaker whose voice soothes me (Alan Watts in paeticular) and block out like 30min or however long to liaten to them. It always sounds menial before beginning, but by the end of it i always have a clear enough head to get out of bed and go to the bathroom, eat, walk or even can do it while listening. Even books on tape, or sound frequencies that reonate. Hope this helps you
