Reasons For Not Wanting To Do Activities?
My friend from November just stayed in his room and didn’t do his usual activities. Eating and drinking must also be ordered and fed. When you sleep, your position is always on your side. And when asked, they don’t answer, if someone comes, they just watch and don’t interact. Is it a symptom of major depression or why?rnThanks in advance. Please answer.
