We didn't see that coming!!!


Hi everybody. First, I apologize for the long post. I'm not

Hi everybody. First, I apologize for the long post. I'm not sure if this is the right place to be writing, but what the hell.
Around 3 years ago I've been diagnosed with anxiety and depression. I've gone to the psychiatrist for a year and stopped when things seemed better and I moved to different city. Around 8 months ago, me and my boyfriend moved to another country because I got a job offer and always wanted to move. After some time I realized that I don't like the job, I was bored and unmotivated so I didn't extend the contract.
Now it's been more than a month that I'm not working, I can't find a new job in my field and am not under financial pressure to take anything, which means I'm alone and can do whatever I want until my boyfriend gets home when we hang out together. Just like a lot of people, I thought that it would be great to have so much free time, but I'm becoming more and more depressed each day. I have problems getting out of bed and sometimes I get anxious about normal stuff, like going to the store. Most of the days I don't leave the apartment at all, and the other days it's only to buy food. I don't have any friends in this country and I don't have any hobbies that could take up some of my time. Most of the time I'm in my bed re-watching series/movies.
I had so many plans on what to do while I'm free, but I don't have the will to do anything anymore, I just wait for the day to end so I can do nothing all over again. I feel like I should just "snap out of it and do something" but I'm just unable to do it.

Hi, just to let you know, it's a bit better, I've started working on some things that might help me in my career, so I feel more useful. Thank you for your advice, I feel much better knowing I'm not crazy xd
I've checked a few volunteer jobs, but still haven't applied to any, I'm hoping to get something in my field.
Thank you for your answers, you made me feel less alone :)
