Hi, my name is Katie. I've struggled with procrastination all my life. I learned it from my parents, especially my mom. However, mine is worse. I deal with some other psychological issues, so I think that has intensified my task avoidance compulsions. Until recently, procrastination was a joke to me and my friends, who told me to just "get it over with" and start projects early so I wouldn't have to stress. I realized I couldn't really put into words why it wasn't that easy. More recently, I was making a list of things I would want to discuss with my therapist when I go back to school and start seeing her again. I realized my number one issue was my procrastination, and admitted to myself that it was a compulsion, not just my laziness. So I googled compulsive procrastination, and found my way here. My hope is to start taking small steps toward productivity until I no longer feel the same level of resistance toward work that I'm fighting now. I realized that I couldn't put this off any longer :)

Welcome Katie!

It's good that you realize that it's *NOT* "laziness".

It's something else entirely.

Taking small steps is a great way to ward off the resistance!

Welcome Kay

Embrace the suck!
