Spoil yourself a little. You have earned it. But don't go overboard.
What happened? You were doing so well, moving along nicely, when all of a sudden life threw an obstacle your way and you crumbled. Why did you give up? When a home burns down, the first thing people do is hunt through the remains to find things that are worth saving. Have you done this? Look again, gather what can be rescued, and you'll soon find your hope returning.
If you don't feel like talking, ask questions. People love to talk about themselves.
