Cant do anything in game

not sure if anyone else is having this problem but when I start playing in a server I can do the following: hatchet rocks, wood piles, trees and interact with animals. for some reason after playing for a while I can no longer hatchet wood piles or rocks and animals cease to do anything in my presence and won’t die. A while later all I can do is run around till I die of starvation. Its gotten so bad that the game has become mostly unplayable. any help?
