like you i am struggling with lack of motivation to do things and my house is a mess, i've isolated myself and don't call people although i am in touch online and via text.
i have some great friends who have also gone through depression and they are very understanding which is great as they don't pressure but do stay around.
i have had a good day today and done some housework, the kitchen and dining room are they best they have looked for ages and that in itself makes me feel better.
my lounge isn't great and my bedroom is shocking but i will get there, just little by little.
i think realistically i've been depressed most of my life but finally came to a crisis point about 2 1/2 years ago and i'm still trying to get out of it.
i do understand how you are feeling but someone said to me recently that you set yourself a small goal each day, even if that is washing the dishes or going for a short walk and then you have achieved success, focus on that
my sleep pattern is awful and i actually managed to get some reasonable sleep the last two nights and the difference that makes is unreal - no idea what triggered that though
i do hope you manage to work through this, sounds like counselling is a good idea for you, i had a few sessions earlier this year and it worked well, although i didn't go through the level of trauma that you have suffered - can't believe they only got a year!
