First time here
I read the signs of a procrastinator and I realized I had a real problem. It occured to me I have been struggling with this problem for over 20 years without facing it.
Recently, I had some paperwork due at my job and I put it off for 3 weeks. Each weekend I told myself I would do it. The weekend came, and well, I ended up watching the clock pushing back the start time until later and later. So late I finally had to go to sleep.
It really is a drug addiction cycle. I don't accomplish what I tell people I will. I feel guilty and miserable and it gives me anxiety too. I hide my procrastination from others. It interrupts my sleep as I think about how far behind I am. Until I read some of the articles on this site I didn't realize how bad I had gotten.
I think I am at the rock bottom of procrastination. I finally surrendered and admitted I have a serious problem. I am trying to do some paperwork tonight instead of waiting until I feel like it. It is tough giving up the habit.
