I'm sick and tired of my family assuming that I am lazy because my daily routine consists of getting up late, eating, watching tv and then going to sleep late. What they don't know is that I am depressed and have social anxiety. No, I have not seen a therapist, but I have done a lot of research. My depression prevents me from opening up to anyone and my social anxiety prevents me from leaving the house. I hate that I can't tell my family and I know they only think I am lazy because they don't really know me. But I just wish one of them would at least ask me why I don't leave my house for weeks at a time and why I am always in bed. (Even though I would probably make up some daft lie that they would believe). I want to seek help from a therapist but again, even though it is irrational, I just can't seem to find the motivation or courage to do so. I just needed to put my thoughts out there because they were all over the place. Thank you.
