I think the best would be if you would talk to a doctor and maybe get counseling to help with the depression and anxiety. Do you have any friends that you could invite over or family?So that you arent alone at home the whole day. Do you go for walks? You could maybe start taking classes in something you enjoy.(making jewelry,making your own makeup,painting etc) Try doing things at home that are fun. If you like art you could start painting..i love painting,it relaxes me. My hobby is making soap..pour and melt. Its fun and i love that time just doing that. What are things you like to do? Do you like baking?Do you do any hobbies?
