Wow Maddie that's no small thing!
I have had a taste of what you are talking about....becoming a recluse...and I'm sure many people on here can identify with this.
I have struggled with depression most of my life and used to slide into an episode without knowing it. I wouldn't go out, or speak to anyone for days and days. If I ran out of groceries, I'd sit and look at the shop that was actually yards away from my house, and do without, because if I went outside....somebody might speak to me....
Well done lady, recognise your achievements and come shout about them!
