I am dealing with serious depression brought on by health issues and living situation. Looking for someone who will listen.

A little more. I lost my job in March due to the virus. I was sick the beginning of the year with what was likely the virus. I really never fully recovered. I moved in with my mom and step dad. As time went on, my health worsened. I let it go way too long due to no insurance and was more dead than alive when I finally went to the hospital. I spent 3 weeks in the hospital. Since returning home, I basically have done little but read and watch tv. With PT I have gained some strength back. The problem is, other than going to the hospital for PT and to see a counselor, I basically am stuck at home as no car so have to beg step dad for a ride. I see the hospital workers, my brothers on occasion, and the home health aide that gives me a shower. I cry a lot as just want to get back to a normal life.
