To Introduce Myself
I have long known that i was a procrastinator - but over this summer I
have got to the point where I realise it is a chronic problem for me - letter
unopened, loved one's and friends not contacted, or replied to - I have even
had two friends die, and I did not know it, because I was out of contact
for so long, and for no good reason. I have not got round to stopping
standing orders and direct debits from my accounts for services I no
longer have, I can leave mail unopened for six months or more as I fear it for
some reason. I have a lock up full of stuff from a house I sold and moved
out of five years ago, but can't face sorting out. I regularly miss
deadlines, and I am a cause of pain and disappointment in friends and family as
they think I do not care about them as I do not contact them or return calls -
but I really DO care about them, I just don't know why I find it so difficult
to pick up the phone.
I realise that the main person that this is hurting, is me! I
realise that I have to do something about it, I am wasting my life, I am
achieving nothing - but I don't know exactly WHAT to do about it.
In looking at your web site, I looked at the signs of compulsive
procrastination list, and realise that all ten of the points apply to me.
I need help, but I want to help myself, and I feel that your web site
might help me with this.
