I just wanted to learn about leeches...

Hey, just wanted to chime in and let you know that I was in a similar position not too long ago. I was also struggling with mental health issues and in my particular case the loss of close family member. I was idle for a very long time trying to deal with what felt like, at the time, insurmountable issue.

Taking the first step back was the hardest. I took a simple part time job and that really helped get me slowly integrate back into normalcy. Since then I've transitioned into a different line of work and have managed to stake it out on my own. I'm still not over a lot of the issues that started this to begin with but things have gotten significantly better. Stay strong and good luck - things will get better.
