Hi, Recognizing how paralyzed you are feeling is actually helping you attempt to move forward however you could use some outside help. If you are not on medication it might be a good idea to see a psychiatrist for an evaluation and medication. Once you are on medication you will start to feel more motivated and able to deal with your depression in therapy.
