    Lately I have been feeling pretty down.

    I don't feel motivated to do anything, I don't put any effort into things that need to be done. I can't focus... I start doing whatever the hell I need to do and I end up staring at 3 lizards chilling on my rooftop for 2 hours. I feel slightly lonely yet I don't wish to talk...

    I don't know what I feel and if what I think I do feel is real. I don't know who I am anymore. And I don't remember who I was. I feel so lost.
