Introduction - Hi I'm Kim and I'm a procrastinator.
I have accomplished a lot during the times I have been able to pull myself together, but then there have been many MORE days when it was a good day if I was able to get a shower in. I have this debilitating perfectionism (even with things that don't matter)...that makes me feel so trapped and unable to move.
I'm a loner mostly by choice but for some reason when I actually have to study or do something like that, I have this overwhelming sense of loneliness that overcomes me and I'll do anything to avoid it. When I used to live with my mom, we had a strange co-dependent relationship, and I never wanted to be away from her. Now, I feel that way about my pets. So I avoid doing things I should be doing to escape a feeling of loneliness.
Another activity that I indulge in to escape is shopping. As a result, my finances aren't in the greatest shape. All in all, it's getting harder to hide the mess I've created and that's why I'm here.
I will use any excuse, whether it's a good reason or bad reason to escape. I'm looking forward to connecting with others like myself, and the hope is that I can find a way out of this mess I've created for myself and actually start living.

Hi Kim Good luck on your journey towards self improvement.
Daily check-ins are a great idea. If I can make a habit of completing one productive thing a day, that'll be a start for me.

I hope you will find this site usefull. It is very relieving when you see that your not the only one battling this problem and the daily check ins are great for when you feel stuck and everything seems overwhelming. Best of luck!
