I understand so well what you are feeling. I have lost so much motivation to get out and do things so I often put it down in writing that I am going to go out but when the time gets here the anxiety kicks in and it is so much easier to just stay home where it is comfortable.
My therapist has been working with me on this issues and asks me if I could go do this or that and I say yes but she does not understand it is the anxiety that holds me back which kick in depression for feeling like I am a huge disappointment to myself and family. Now I am on the merry-go-round of "stinkin thinkin".
I did go out for a ride today on the motorcycle with my hubby and once I settled down I enjoyed it. So it is one step at a time. If I could buy energy in a jar I would purchase a gallon or two.
We shall both continue to put one foot in front of the other.
