Introducing myself


I have just joined after finding the site yesterday. I am desperate and did not know where to turn next. I've always procrastinated but at some point it began to dominate my life at work and at home.

At work I periodically become surrounded by piles of paper. I manage to tackle a few and when it gets really bad, I put the rest in boxes and hide them under my desk. I've done this three times over the past two years and I'm running out of places to put the boxes. Because I work in a very loosely supervised environment my lack of activity has not been all that obvious (I think) but it is just a matter of time before my boss realises how bad it is. I can't sleep for worrying that I will lose my job, and with it my health insurance which covers my antidepressant prescriptions.

I have read the sticky at the top of this forum and am going to try a microburst. I hope this will be a baby step towards building a life in which I take an active part instead of the way I live now which is spent avoiding life and all its richness.

I look forward to contributing and learning and getting to know other members.

Welcome Inkling!

Try the daily checkins and the chatbox too!


Every time you get up and get back in the race, one more little piece of you starts to fall into place - (from "Stand" by Rascal Flatts)

Thanks Jo. I'll check them

Thanks Jo. I'll check them out. Still finding my way around - but trying not to use my exploring to procrastinate . . .

Welcome Inkling!!

I can very much relate - especially to the work aspect. Like Jo said, I find the check-ins and chatbox's very helpful. The chatbox is a place you can go to just say the things you're going to do next...the things you are stuck with, etc. it helps me immensely, because I tend to think I have to do everything on my own.

So glad you are here with us!!
