I completely went through the same thing!! I had brain fog, had no idea where to even begin...etc. etc. Felt like I was drowning with no purpose, no point, and nothing that I enjoyed or wanted. I think a lot of people with emotional problems struggle with this actually. Emotional problems are hard and most of us don't want to deal with the pain. I have gone through about 3 therapists that were absolute crap, 2 were just quacks, and the 1 I spent a year with I literally talked about nothing of consequence. It's like none of these therapists actually did anything proactive that really helped me, they just kinda listened to me. I didn't really know what to say and didn't want to show anyone my real struggles, it was embarrassing and painful! I was scared to really admit how things were because I though they were so stupid and weird. How frustrating! I also went to see a meditation counselor, which helped me more than they did!

Oh I had a fourth therapist who was actually brilliant and incredible though, I only saw her for a short time though because she didn't take my health insurance and was incredibly expensive ($150 for 45 minutes). My parents are paying my tuition as soon as I scrap together some extra cash I'm gonna go to her for some hypnotherapy.

I think the most important thing is to find a therapist that you can open up with, that you just 'click' with. Also there truly are a lot of so-so or bad counselors, if you get a good one, you'll know. Try researching different types of therapy, try different counselors with the therapy you are interested in. Even a spiritual leader or someone along those lines might be good if you could actually be honest and open with them. Above all don't feel weird or embarrassed, or stupid about feeling weird, embarrassed, and stupid! Not negatively judging what you feel is a big part of healing.
