Dear Dr. Beth, I know I am depressed and have been for a long time, but I’m actually too depressed to get out of bed or even make a phone call to make myself get in touch with a doctor or counselor. I can barely even get myself to write this email. I hardly eat at all or shower or do any of the normal things I used to do.  I live alone and the only thing that keeps me going at all is that I love my pets and have to take care of them. What do I do?
