Lately I have been very down and its affecting me more than usual. Like I don't want to get out of bed, Its like its hurts to do anything if that makes sense. My boyfriend can do but so much but he tries the best he can. I don't have the money for the help. I want to cry most of the time honestly. I just really don't want to feel like this anymore.

@LadybugJay I know what you mean, I've been there. A major part of depression, or at least mine anyway, is just not seeing any joy or point in the things I used to love to do. What really helped me get back on my feet and get to a place where I was ready to get help was just forcing myself to get out of my house at least once a day. I would just take my music and go outside for a walk around the neighborhood just to brush out the cobwebs and get a little sun. At first it was hard, but with time it evolved from walking around the block in my sweats to jogging. It's something that I do every day now and it really helps me. Just getting out of my place getting to listen to my music or a podcast and either walk or jog and be alone really does me some good. So Idk if that can help you, but maybe try to force yourself to get up and go out every once and a while and make it something just for you. It doesn't have to be running but maybe just a walk, or yoga, or gardening, or cutting your lawn or walking your dog. Just something that gets you out of bed and out of your house. I hope this helps you a bit, keep your chin up, you're not alone!
