I have a hard time socializing. Being home is where I feel safe. I don't like meeting new people. I'm scare of what can happen if I'm out in public. I think to much of the bad things that can happen. And my anxiety takes control.  I'm trying CBD oil for sleep and anxiety.  So I can function. So my depression dosent take over on top of that

I completely understand. I hate going out when I feel my depression has been triggered. I get home and look at my two beautiful babies and immediately a smile. Sometimes they just make me feel better but other times I take it so they won’t see me down. My two year old can sense mommy is sad so he will come up to me and give me kisses until I smile. It’s tough but maybe finding a hobby even if it’s on your own. Gardening can distract you from it. Hiking is also a great little get away from the world and keeps you healthy. Sending you blessings.
