I feel like my mental illness is irreparable.

Your mental illness doesn’t define you. All those things you mentioned are choices and not because of mental illness. You choose not to clean your room, you choose not to do your homework, you choose to eat shitty foods that make your mood worse. I’m sorry to say this but part of growing up and being an adult is doing shit you don’t want to do every damn day. It sucks and is exhausting but we have to do it. You have to want to get better yourself no one is going to make you better. Your life doesn’t have to be that way if you don’t want it to be. Only you have the power to change it. Get up clean your room do your homework cook a healthy meal take a walk and tell yourself that you fucking got this and it’s going to be ok!! Talk to yourself like you would a best friend be kind and gentle. One day, week, month, or year doesn’t define your entire life. You got this!!!!
