Hi, 55 years old, just realised how serious procrastination is

I've been dealing with procrastination all my life, but for so many years it was either a joke, or a criticism, or too shameful /scary to even think about, or all of these.

Real solutions, real help, real understanding have been a long time coming.

When I was younger, I had absolutely no idea how to begin to find "the button" to press, to release me from my catatonic state. Until a few weeks ago, I still couldn't see how dramatically it has affected my life (denial). Older and armed with more understanding & techniques, I still have to try to find the button than will drown out the screaming procrastination voice for long enough for me to hear one of the "still, small voices" (intuition, reason, Higher Self, inner wisdom, bodybrain,...) that will in turn enable me to activate one of the techniques or methods on your site or elsewhere, to have a chance of moving forward. 

I'm so glad you're all there, thank you Pro for this site, and everybody for your contributions. I've already found so much stuff on it, new ideas, ideas that connect into stuff I'd already found out. I'm so looking forward to  learning more, sharing what I've learnt, making progress, getting & giving support and celebrating our progress with one another.

Just finding the right name for something you've lived with for years is fantastic : what a relief to descover "demand resistance", for instance ! New techniques, I'm looking forward to trying the "trigger" technique, ... your wisdom and experiences, it's really great to find a whole buch of people who understand. Thank you. 

Welcome to Leontion!

Glad you have found us! I can relate as I am nearly 54 and didn't join up until 2 years ago.

All the best with your new start Smile

PS Sorry I spelt your name wrongly in the earlier version of this post - have fixed it now.


So many people post stuff on here that I keep thinking I must have written myself without realising, and yours was another! Welcome to the world of people all fighting the same enemy.

Welcome Leontine!

Embrace the suck!
