I've been laying in bed for days now and I got up to see someone yesterday but for most of the day I just lay in bed and have no energy or drive to do anything or even eat. I've cried so much that I've just gone numb that I can't even cry now. I don't know what to do

      I once read that anything worth doing, is worth doing poorly. The examples I remember were if you don't have the energy to brush your teeth for 2min, brushing for 30sec is better than nothing. If taking a shower is too much, washing your face is better than not doing it at all. Eating a few crackers is better than not eating. If exercising is too much, just do some stretching. This method has helped me. Think of one small thing you can do to take care of yourself and cut it into even smaller bits if necessary.

      I know how you feel. Celebrate even the 'small' victories, like getting up and taking a few steps, brushing your teeth, or enjoying a snack. Bonus points for a full glass of cold water! Message me if you need a friend

      I'm feeling really similar, I got out of bed for doctor appt but not much else lately. I like the idea above of very small steps if big things are too much. But I also very much fight that I am 46 years old, I should be able to get out of bed, care for myself and home, work, care for family, and I feel like a horrible person because I can't.
