My name is Amanda. I am new to this site. I have only read a few parts of it but know I am in a place where people understand. I have always struggled with procrastination...it has been a family joke for many years...I've laughed along sometimes but I know it is not funny...it causes me (and people around me) so much distress and anxiety. I have tried many things (often as ways to procrastinate)...reading books, tapes, lots of self criticism etc.
I have been addressing other patterns and behaviours over the last year...compulisive eating...alcohol...I am involved with a 12 step programme (Overeaters Anonymous) and also have been sober for 10 months now. I feel like this is the time to face things...I know from my OA group that isolation, fear and shame are blocks to my recovery.
I feel anxious and fearful that I will not be able to do this..that I will not 'cut the muster'...but I think back to my first connectin with OA and similar feelings and where I am now...not 'sorted' but along way from where I was.
Thank you for being part of this and for sharing yourselves
