The simplest things can be such an effort

Does anyone else get that feeling too ? It’s an effort to do more than one task a day.

Yes. I have to wash my hair today. It’s an insurmountable task in my mind’s eye.

Boy do I ever. I know that putting things off can make simple tasks seem like they’re looming in your life and impossible to fix. In my situation very little is asked of me, so I have that problem solved here, but I can remember previously agonizing about really simple tasks because I kept putting them off,

I am better if I have someone help me with the task so I am just doing a part of the task.

Yes, I keep putting off simple tasks too. Until I no longer can.

Ugh I know that feeling all to well. What with meds, negative symptoms, depression, and being over exhausted, even getting out of bed or brushing my teeth is huge effort. Sucks butt when you used to be really active, but I guess this is my body’s sign that I need to slow things down.

I haven’t brushed my teeth yet - I’m procrastinating :frowning2:
