Feeling depressed and anxious

Tonight. I dread work. I disassociate when stressed. Been watching tv with my SO and he's older than I am. Am feeling sad about leaving him to go to work.

I get a sad, sentimental feeling sometimes. I'll see a movie I like, then read everything I can about it. I also have mild OCD. Hoping everyone here is doing okay.
Sorry for the word salad. Having a hard time articulating my feelings tonight.

I have general anxiety and prefer staying home. I know I should get out more, but since I was a kid, I loved staying at home. Thanks for responding; I feel a bit better

When I was a kid I dreaded going back to school on Monday. Then I dreaded going back to work on Monday. Now I’ve been working from home — which has been a bonus for me since I really prefer to stay home — but I still dread having to go back online on Monday morning. I don’t know how I’m going to deal with having to go back out there ... One day I’ll probably miss these “abnormal” times.
