Overwhelmed And Depressed

when things happen in my life I just shut down. I shut myself off from the world. I think if I just ignore the problems they will disappear. I know it won't but I've been doing this forever. The funny thing is I rather not be alone. I think I shut down for a coping mechanism. I don't know what else to do..my dad passed away in 2006 which I haven't gotten over. I take care of my mom and I now. plus I'm in the middle of mediation for our house. I have so many things to do I end up doing none of them.

This is so me. I hate that I can't just deal with the problem. I ignore it and it then snowballs. This always happens at a time when everything is going wrong. The cycle then repeats. I ignore the other things because I am so exhausted emotionally from dealing with the other thing.
