  1. Yes, I feel a lot of the things you have mentioned. I feel like I am forgetting who I am. Also I find that sometimes I empathize too much and start wondering if I might have repressed memories that align with what I'm reading or hearing. I think it all might be a part of loneliness. Being trapped in your own mind is not a fun place to be. I wish I had something wonderful to say or some advice that could help. The best I can do is tell you that recovery IS possible and that your improvement is closely tied to the effort you put in. That's what I think, for what it's worth! I personally feel that in person interactions are more beneficial than online. But that is more difficult during lockdown. I have lost touch with so many friends. Plus some bad experiences trusting people have left me not even wanting friends anymore. I think I just need to learn the warning signs and walk away sooner. No man is an island and we need companionship. Don't let 1 or 2 people ruin your opinion of everybody. Everybody goes through challenges in life. Some more than others albeit. There are literally thousands of people going through similar or even the same things as you. Youtube has a lot of helpful videos. Some of my favourite's on youtube are: Psych2go, The School of Life, The Improvement Pill and BigNoKnow. Also Andrew Soloman gave a great talk on Tedx that is on youtube under the heading "Depression, the secret we share" All of this will help in not feeling alone, but at some point you are gonna need connections in the real world (I think!). I also think nutrition plays a very large role in mood and the related disorders. I have drastically cut my alcohol consumption and it has been a bit of a mixed bag for me. But I think it's for the best in the long run. Good luck Svenetc!
