I know one time I lay in bed for 2 weeks and faced the wall. I did not want to talk to anyone, see anything or deal with phone calls. I ate only when I had to, same with using the rest room. I don't recall if I showered or not, but I kind of doubt it. Not long after this, once I came out of it, I got permission to get a dog. That helped me a lot not to go back into it. I am not sure what triggered it, as it was many years ago now, like about 25 or so? All I know is that once I came out of it, I worked hard to make sure that it never happened again. I knew in my heart and soul that it was not healthy for me. I was in therapy at the time too, so that helped me to keep from having it happen again also.
