I am not able to leave the house much at all right now and haven't been for a while it seems. I miss having a life and just enjoying things. I am so anxious and depresssed everyday. It has gotten so bad that I don't even want to get my mail or see any neighbors for fear they are looking at me weird. I feel guilty all day long that I am not the mother person wife I used to be and just really want to get myself back.
