 i hate to admit i am a procrastinator. For the past 15 years I
have been a procrastinator without me being aware of it. As a result 
,  I have  dropped out of college, then again the same with a
polytechnic course. In 2002 I have enrolled myself with a distance
education ug course. it's been six years already and i am yet to
complete 1 year of the under graduate. Presently i am unable to go to
work because of an health problem. Neither being able to go to work nor
study, i feel i am in a mess. I am confused, scared and need help to
come out this problem, can somebody advice.

welcome ksm

i also feel shame about my procrastination. Altho i must admit that talking about it here produces no shame (I am VERY grateful to have such a fellowship of co-recover-ers).

I echo kristen--probably the most important thing is to keep coming back. I find chat excellent, and daily check-in threads--on the right hand box you should see the thread for the current day. That's where we mostly hang out. We'd love for you to join us as we fight this thing together.

Welcome KSM!

You are in the right place.   As Kristen said, many of us are in the US, so we may not be online at the same time, but we will read and respond to your posts.  

I have noticed several members from India, too, so maybe you will find a few people online anyway!

Read all the articles that Pro has posted, and start checking in.   It really does help.  You will find support here.

Hi ksm! Thanks for posting; it takes a lot of courage to admit that you have this problem.

The best advice I can give you is to stick around! This site is full of amazing, supportive people who are working through the same chronic procrastination that you're suffering from. I know at least a few of them have had similar experiences to yours—difficulty in sticking with education, health problems, and other issues all resulting from persistent, addictive procrastination. 

I see from your profile that you live in India, so you might have some trouble finding people awake at the same time you are (it's 4:21 in the morning where I am right now), but try and find people in the chatbox sometime. Talking to people in realtime is a really wonderful way to feel supported and motivated. Some of our early risers will be up in two or three hours, and they might be in the chatbox then (I don't know for sure, as I'm only awake at 6 or 7 when I've been up all night!). 

Best of luck, and I look forward to seeing you around the forums and chatbox.
