Hi guys. This isn't meant to be a stupid question, it's honestly a sincere one. Like many of you I have major depression and also like many of you I have some serious stress in my life. However, I have seen from reading your daily postings (yes, I'm sorry, but I have been lurking-just haven't felt up to posting) that this hasn't stopped you from living your lives and taking care of what needs to be done.
Specifically, I have been struggling with basic day-to-day functions such as doing my dishes, cleaning bathrooms, and picking up after myself and my teenage daughter. I have to force myself to pay bills, which are often late, and the thought of showering (which I force myself to do) makes me shudder.
Last, I have watched the progress and hard work of Myself09, who has been committed and steadfast in studying for her Praxis exams over the past six? months or so. ....I have to do this as well, and have tried on and off for the past 4 years to do this, and have not been able to stay strong and committed. And I honestly cannot tell you why.
So, I ask once again---what is really wrong with me? Why can't I stay strong and committed like all of you and get things done? Is this just laziness? How do you all push past this and get things done? Please share because I really do want to change.
