Welcome to Healing Well. You asked:
"How does one return to everyday life after being out of it for so long?"
I believe your on the road to recovery and the how in my mind is by taking baby steps. Be good to yourself and set your goals but make them attainable. If you have a bit of a bump in the road do not take that as a failure, we all have them.
The advice given by the others is excellent, we all support you and keep posting.
Xx Sometimes we all have to go a little crazy just to stay sane xX
Checking in with you to see how you are doing? How is therapy going for you?
I know we are in the holiday season and sometimes that stresses people out so please know we are here for you and post when you can.
