Would it help staying in a hostel setting ?
With group interaction
Would that help? Or is isolation better

Would it help if someone was there to manage activities and draw up a schedule
Someone to divide the day into physical sports mental social and work durations
Someone to take you through the steps of activities - to provide trainers
Someone who would see what works and does not
Someone to manage the diet
Someone to manage social activities
Someone to manage group outings
Some place to work like a warehouse packing orders
Have a group psychiatrist visit daily/regularly
Someone to check on emergencies/panic attacks
Someone to provide a mood chart over a time period

Are there places like this
Are they expensive
Do they work
How long would people stay

Anyone else have an understanding?

> Hi, thank you for commenting on this. Those are all great suggestions and I have tried all of those things. A few things make me less depressed than I already am, including a few things on your list. However, over time my depression and insomnia has just gotten worse and I just really don't care about anything anymore. Things that I once found mildly entertaining or exciting just don't do it for me anymore. It seems the older I get the more numb and emotionless I become.
