My mental health has been on a complete downward spiral the past month. I haven't done any washing in a month, I can't shower or wash properly because my shower is blocked and I can't unblock it mainly due to sensory issues (I'm autistic) but also because of my depression. I have brushed my teeth not even 5 times the past few month and full sugar coke is one of the only things I drink. I can feel a hole in the back of one of my front teeth but my brain doesn't care. I'm sleeping all the time, hardly eating because getting up and doing it is too much. I am barely functioning and I don't know what to do anymore. I have no family and I only have one friend so I don't have much support to help. On a long wait list for therapy and have no other mental health support. I feel so hopeless

      I feel for you so much I’m sorry I don’t have something better to say- but be gentle on yourself u have a valid disability and illness disrupting your life- maybe a sun rise light /daylight lamp/ light therapy alarm, try to get meds from a psychiatrist- do anything u can to accommodate yourself- there’s no shame in making things easier especially when ur having a rough time- there’s dry cleaning wipes for body, dental wipes, baby wipes and disposable toothbrushes, listerine strips , mouth spray, gum, mints and mouth wash, microwave able / ready made food, “drinkable meals” like a smoothie. You can probably find more tips on tik tok if u search “hygiene tips for depressed”, “hygiene tips when struggling”, “depressed dental hygiene”, “cleaning tips for depressed”, “self care tips when depressed” etc
