Hi, I usually post to the Fibro forum but I also suffer from depression and anxiety.  I have a question.  Does anyone else self sabotage themselves?  I tell myself that I am going to do this and that and follow through for a day or two then stop.  I don't seem to have the motivation to continue.  Not sure if I am scared or what.  Like weight loss.  I know what to do and gung ho to do it but I don't know.  At times I feel lost need to do some soul searching and need to know in what direction to go.  Spoke to my therapist but she didn't say much except that it is too broad.  Sorry don't mean to ramble.
Thanks,
Lisa

What did she say was too broad? It doesn't sound like you and your therapist are on the same page. Maybe you need somebody different than her. Somebody who makes some sense.

Maybe she means that you need to break things down into smaller tasks and do them a little at a time. Instead of looking at the whole great big picture. That is all I can gather of it.

Lack of motivation is a symptom of depression. I can relate to how you are feeling. I find the best thing is to take life one day at a time. Being a fellow fibro sufferer, I will say that works for the fibro too. One day at a time. That is really all that we can do. It helps to live in the moment. In the now.

I hope that this helps some.

Hugs, Karen
