Kaycie, pacting is for people who are in a bit of a slump need some motivation to get through the day. We pact what we'd like to achieve and then check in later to tell people how we went.
Sometimes it's just a matter of pacting to do the basic chores instead of vegging out in front of the tv, feeling horrible, and letting the mess pile around us. Sometimes it's more to do with maintaining mental health - being with people, doing activities, things like that.
Thanks Ivy. If I wasn't back to work, I'd totally need that. My weekends are for vegging in front of the tv, but I do stay motivated to get the laundry and dishes done. I've been a bit down with this recent flare and the new decisions I'm having to make. Trying to weed through info again and it's downright depressing, to be honest. I'm on Lexapro thank goodness, but I still think I need to increase my dose...
