    Hi @gigi2023 I am sorry you are having such a difficult time at the moment. Look at the small things you might have achieved this year. Like getting up for an hour, or making yourself a cup of tea/coffee. Perhaps at the end of each day think of a small task you could do the next day and if you do take that as a great achievement. We are sometimes too hard on ourselves. Perhaps look at the games or chats under Categories Games room and the Coffee Lounge. and join in just for say 10 minutes a day. We are here anytime you would like to chat. Take care.

    Thanks for your reply Beaver, I think it's because I had a traumatic time the year before I just wanted peace and found myself just wanting to hide away. I will look at the lounge and games room thanks.
