I tend to have trouble getting out of bed in the morning. But, when I get to work I tend to be fine. I have trouble again when I return home. I live by myself and I'm finding that I just don't have the motivation to do the things that need to get done - cooking dinner, doing laundry, cleaning the bathroom, washing the dishes, etc. (I actually bought new underwear yesterday instead of going to the laundry mat. I just couldn't face bundling everything up, lugging it down the 3 flight of stairs and going through the process of washing it all and folding it and lugging it back up and putting it all away.) Ahh! I have successfully lived with roommates in the past where I always made sure to keep my space along with any shared space clean, since I could never live with myself if my actions were having a negative effect on other people. But, for some reason I can't seem to keep my own place clean when I'm living by myself.
Does anyone have any suggestions to help me get my place into better shape? I mean when someone actually wants to visit I find a way to prevent them from coming over, since I'd be embarrassed if they discovered that every flat surface in my kitchen is covered with dirty dishes or there's so much stuff on the living room floor that I can't walk across it without stepping on something. Which makes me even more depressed and isolated, since my lack of motivation is pushing the social interaction that I crave.
