a couple visits , i tried to explain how i have trouble getting anything going, and that i just end up staring at a wall for hours.
her response was to write in a schedule book. and gave me all these sheets to fill out everyday.
and to get out and see things.
I was like ummmm so Im having trouble doing the basic things in life and now you want me to fill out all these task sheets every day when I have trouble waking up before 4pm and barely make cereal to eat.
she just didnt get it. I think she was more used to dealing with people who have depression as opposed to negative symptoms.
cuz i said Im not depressed i just have no drive to do anything even though id like to.
from all that I discovered a way for me to get going on things which is setting a timer, or starting with 5 minutes of the task or even just 1 minute. but i discovered that on my own it wasn’t suggested.
