How do you cope with wanting to do absolutely nothing all day except for sleep and cry? My family has been pretty patient with me but I can tell it’s starting to run out and I don’t want to cause fights either between themselves or between them and myself. Everyday it’s a battle in my head just to get up before noon. I feel like I’m taking advantage of the people around me, or like a burden. I just want to be functional again.

      Another thing I forgot to mention is to reach out to friends you trust in and maybe let them know about your situation and see if you can schedule hang outs with them. I have some friends I confide in and I found that having someone to vent to has really helped and they also offer to hang out with me when I’m feeling really down.

      My therapist told me that sometimes it’s good to listen to your body if it’s asking to lay in bed all day. However, don’t let this become a never-ending cycle. I had trouble getting out of this and I took baby steps. My therapist suggested that I start by setting the latest time for me to be in bed, which for me is 11 am since I just can’t seem to get up earlier than that. Then she told me to force myself to get out of bed and go sit down somewhere else, which for me is the sofa. Even if you’re not doing anything, get out of the bed and sit somewhere else and try sitting up. I started doing this and I found that being away from bed and sitting up motivated me to want to get up more and be more productive. The first days I was honestly just sitting down on the couch not doing anything but slowly I felt like doing more things. The fact I could easily get up from the couch played a huge factor since in bed I found it so much more difficult since I was so comfortable laying down. Find things that entertain you and motivate you. Search up things to do when you’re bored online, like arts and crafts, try something new. For me I started my own small business and it made me feel so much more productive and useful and it motivated me to get out of bed and look forward to working on it. Another thing I really love doing is going out for walks. If you don’t feel like going out, get up every hour at least and walk around the house a bit, like I said baby steps. Drink more water, maybe start a skin routine, a self care routine. Make a schedule for yourself. I downloaded an app the first days where I was feeling so unmotivated and made a schedule for myself on when I would get up out of bed, when I would do yoga stretches and when I would do my walk. It really helped. Maybe try doing yoga as well, get up and stretch, start journaling, meditating, find a new hobby. Baby steps. Any little thing to boost your mental health. I wish you the best, and if you feel like you can’t do it alone, please seek professional help. My therapist has been a really helpful guide for me
