I think I got hit with a stronger depression because for the past few days I've been trying out living in a different town by a relative...
Maybe I'm missing the security of my own home and bed.

I sort of changed my whole routine. I'm trying to learn and work and go to shul....

Is it possible that making changes like this could aggravate my mood and cause depression?

Maybe, if your expectations of yourself are too high and you feel that you're failing.

I definitely don't feel like I'm SUCCEEDING I'm operating with my hands tied because of my depression, low self esteem, and loneliness/lack of emotional support....

I guess you're sort of saying that I need to lower my expectations?

I don't know. Maybe what you can do is appreciate the little things that you are doing, despite your depression.

Yea I totally understand Momo. Dealing with something on a long term basis can get really tiring. I can really relate. I get tired of it sometimes

I try telling myself to just keep on moving and to pick myself up.
I worked a full day today despite being heavily depressed. That has to count for something..
