Help filling out Function Report!

Ok I need some help/advice on how to answer some of these questions. There's so much I could say in these small little spaces! First of all I've been diagnosed with major depressive disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, social phobia and knee pain.

5. How do your illnesses, injuries, or conditions limit your ability to work? Ok here I guess I need to describe how my depression affects me everyday. Like I can't concentrate, I have lack of energy/motivation, I barely leave the house. I don't like being around other people. Should I describe what my medication do to me? They make me drowsy and I sleep through half the day. Pls need some advice here.

Another question is:

12. PERSONAL CARE (Check here if NO PROBLEM with personal care.)
a. Explain how your illnesses, injuries, or conditions affect your ability to:
Care for hair
Feed self
Use the toilet

Ok I want to know because of my depression, how do I exactly explain why I don't dress, bathe everyday like I should, don't comb my hair, etc. I mean the only times I really do these things is if I have a doc appointment or something. I guess I could put I just don't have the energy/motivation to do it because of my depression? I'm confused This would be so much easier to fill out if I had a physical problem!
