#13 Op says she is sick. Sometimes going outside isn't an option. It also sounds like the depression might be linked to the illness (which really sucks OP I know) and other people's misconceptions that "you're only ill because you don't go out" rather than seeing that being ill stops you going out, can make the depression so much worse because it shows jusy how much they don't understand. It's no fun being blamed by others, even just in their heads, for something that's not your fault.
I'm pretty sure OP meant they're home sick, not "homesick." I mean, how would being homesick have anything to do with getting Oreos stuck in your belly button?! Obviously, even if OP was presumably homesick, that doesn't mean they wouldn't be showering and going outside to do whatever it is that they would have to do to continue living. I think the point of the FML was to say that they've been stuck at home for so long, dealing with sickness and depression, and possibly being bedridden, that they just found Oreos in their belly button due to their lack of ability to properly care for their hygiene. I can sympathise because I spent the better part of this year in a similar situation due to a fractured hip and subsequent hip replacement. So yeah, I know what's it's like to be stuck at home with an illness and the depression it can lead to.
You'd probably feel better if you took a shower and went outside.
I suggest you clean that out before you get some kind of bacterial infection,feel better soon OP.
Time to get out of your funk, OP. And work on your personal hygiene. But seriously, try video chatting with your loved ones on a regular basis. Not the real thing but it helps actually seeing that person. Also, consider saving up some money for a plane ticket home. Feel better!
