I hope this post is in the right place. What do you do about zoning out when feeling overwhelmed? I suspect this is a similar reaction to wanting to lie in bed or sleep, but the difference is that I'm up, dressed, even sitting with my roommate, watching TV or reading stuff online. I may wake up and think I need to do stuff, but then I just want to sit and zone out. It's like temporally giving up. It's hard to feel hopeful and motivated when I need to be. It's easier to just zone out.
