I TOTALLY understand about feeling discouraged with yourself over not being able to do seemingly "normal" things others do without even thinking about it. It makes me feel very much like a burden to my fiance who has to go to the pharmacy and run all the errands for me! I am 29 and feel that he shouldn't have to have all that responsibility on his shoulders! I AM mostly able to go with him to get groceries at Wal-Mart but I can't go alone. WE MUST REMEMBER that it's a disorder BECAUSE there's usually no other reason for it other than a chemical imbalance or major trauma, both of which we don't choose and aren't at fault for-and we can't expect huge progress overnight. Just the fact that you're seeking support and advice on this site is a positive step toward progress! Be gentle with yourself and remember that "baby steps" of progress are STILL progress and it shows you're making an effort and working on doing what you need to do to slowly become more healthy. Loved ones should see that and be supportive just as you would be to them. If it's okay with you, I'll pray for you.
