Dear Oneday

I had that problem for awhile but I set tiny goals and then just forced myself to follow through.  I would write down my goals each morning and check them off as I did them.

I also gave myself permission to shorten the list and not beat myself up if I did not get the goal done that day.

Try the goal worked for me, hope it does for you

I went through months of having that problem. It was all I could do to go out of my apartment to get the mail.
My family actually stepped in and made me do it. But,like Kitt said making goals and doing them one day at a time.

Good Luck and keep us posted.
