I can completely relate to you on this one. I can go days without showering...or even brushing my teeth, I've never felt so disgusting in my entire life! I used to be a person who showered at least once everyday and brushed my teeth twice a day...I used to be a lot of things. I've never been a super organized person but now my life is so chaotic that there literally isn't a single surface in my world that isn't covered with crap. I don't pay my bills on time, I don't take care of my dog the way I should and even on my up days I get so overwhelmed by everything that I've put off that I don't even know where or how to start cleaning up my life. It's a frustrating and vicious circle that I still don't know how to break...it is a little reassuring to know that I'm not the only gross one out there I'm sorry that I can't offer any words of wisdom as to how to fix this problem but I appreciate you bringing this out in the open!!
PS I haven't shaved my armpits in 4 or 5 days...how nasty is that?!!!
Hi All My house is messy and disorganized. in my deepest depression it gets quite dirty also. I never have a up where I want to clean. I like to go shopping. I call Wal Marts clothes disposable because they r so cheap. I have a laundry that will pick my clothes in garbage bags up at the front door and return them clean and folded and I still have trouble calling them and getting the clothes ready for them. As for the higene I have always struggled with it terriblly. When I am up "which the meds reduced significantly" I will jump in the shower and shave===but most of the time I am somewhere on the downside and I hate it.I am so disorganized i write things down and have 3x5 cards every where. ADD/ BIpolar who knows I just know it is a mess,my desk, my front room has all the clean clothes from the laundry==they never make the bedroom. I live alone, in a small mobile home and there are places for everything, they just never end up there. I feel much better reading these posts Tom tcmoon
