I Can't Achieve My Plans

I can’t follow any personal plan I make, it’s like planning to get on a diet, I try to run away from my self commitment no matter what the consequences are, I simply become emotionless towards my plan…
I want to go back to college, I should be studying for tests, instead I find any other excuse to not do that, every time I get serious and say to my self “I gotta do it now”, " now or never ", I wake up the next day doing exactly the opposite…What Is WRONG with me!!!

Probably being schizophrenic has a part in it. Give yourself a break. Maybe you are expecting too much from yourself. None of us will achieve everything we want in life. You have to compromise. Set fewer goals and take small steps. Schizophrenia affects us, you can’t deny it. But it doesn’t stop us from doing everything.

By the way, we are not schizophrenics, we are people who suffer from schizophrenia. Give yourself a break and don’t put too much pressure on yourself. I read that writing your goals down on paper helps you to achieve them. Do you see a therapist? If you do, than he/she may help you with this. Anyway, I wish you good luck.

Thank you Nick…I think I expect too much of myself, you are right.

@Alex

It’s nice to see you back.

Lack of motivation and organization is part of this head circus. I don’t know about you, but I get more jumbled with stress…

When I’m patient with myself… I have a little more ability to make it through my day.

Break the big stuff down into smaller chunks… maybe that might help.

Good luck and I hope you feel better soon

I did cut down the amount of study to the half, it worked for a few days but then I went back to not doing it, …I don’t know the what’s the reason?!
