Depression cause of procrastination?
Just had enlightening talk with s.o. and realized that I have probably been suffering from an extremely long bout of depression, which led me to totally letting my life go (not applying for jobs, getting evicted, etc.)
It's like that normal "warning bell" inside me isn't ringing, isn't doing anything, like I'm in a comatose state emotionally. I think it's probably from post-trauma: hospitalization and diagnosis of chronic illness 2 years ago, being left by ex, finding out he's living with/marrying someone else, getting monthly financial support from family pulled from me at the same time I found out about ex, losing several friends from an argument -- all happened to me. That's when I went into 12-step recovery for 4 months, went into church ... and I got that "safe" feeling and just didn't take action. Needed that comfort like a baby blanket .. and totally dropped the ball as a result.
Anyone else notice a correlation with depression/post-trauma and avoidance/procrastination?
