Hello I'm new
I signed up to the site as a result of the BBC radio program about procrastination. Unfortunately, it took 7 weeks for me to get activated because Pro was so busy and of course the effects of Sandy. I hope Pro is doing ok and the apartment is now warmer! I am very grateful to be here finally.
I live in the UK. And I am a serial procrastinator. If I can put something off, I will. I worry all the time about the things I haven't done. I frequently don't return messages from my friends for days or weeks because I read them and think that I'll reply later. I have behaved in a ridiculous fashion towards prospective clients because I felt bad about something I had promised to do but couldn't. I find focus extremely difficult and sporadically employ different strategies to overcome my procrastination tendencies. I own a reasonable amount of self-help books although I hate calling them that.
My mum is terminally ill and in a nursing home now. She is only 62. There is much to be done for her and I need to get more done so that we can make arrangements, sell the house and make her life as comfortable as we can while keeping up with my work, my studies and my hobbies which keep me sane!
I am tired of procrastination. It feeds into my depressive tendencies and gives me reasons to feel bad about myself. I am an intelligent, practical and caring woman but this is lost through my procrastination. I am glad to be in the company of people who are similar to me. I hope that I can stick with the site and use it to help me get more done and be more at peace with myself.
