Procrastination, crises, mean I can be ADDICTED to these things?

Hi everyone!

I just found this website today and could nearly have cried with recognition.  I am so a procrastination addict.  I had no idea there was such a thing but after reading about "crisis junkies" I obsessively searched the interwebs for more, more, more...!  I am incredibly relieved to be able to label what's wrong with me, having chased after so many other explanations and never having felt quite satisfied that I'd hit exactly on it yet.

 I look forward to working the steps and getting to know you.  I'm not new to the 12-step format and am happy this is a 12-step.  Oh! And I should say a few concrete things about myself, I suppose.  I'm a freelance writer (with a job on the side since I'm not yet able to support my family solely on that income) and a 32-year-old single mom.  I had a dysfunctional childhood & a few traumatic events and situations in my adult life which helped me make more and more wrong choices.  Furthermore, I'm fed up with my wrong choices and would really rather enjoy my life - and enjoy living with my own self!

That's about it.  I never know how to write a good introduction so I'll stop while I'm relatively ahead.  ;) 

((welcome Inkstress))

I appreciate the encouragement. Just coming here is already helping my outlook & focus somewhat. I'm very grateful. Smile


Welcome, keep coming back. Coming here is a "right choice" already. Vic

Welcome, inkstress!

Hey there, inkstress! welcome to PA :) "Crisis junkie" is probably a good term for it =/ I remember how relieved I was when I first came across this site - knowing that I actually had a problem helped lift some of the self-loathing and blame :p Really hope you find this place helpful, I know I did :D The community is great, there are lots of useful materials, and the check-in board is effective when used correctly, which I'm unfortunately not good at doing x).
