hi, i'm a married mom of 4, and working on my dissertation, which is a painful daily struggle. though i've always been a procrastinator, there's nothing in life that is as daunting as the dissertation, and has such dire consequences due to my procrastination and resistance. if i dont call the plumber, at some point, i'm going to need a shower, and i wont procrastinate any longer. i believe that i am a compulsive procrastinator, and i lack self control in other areas as well. i dont have any other addictive behaviors besides for this area, but i do feel out of control. i feel that i have tried so many tips and tricks to help me focus and do the work, and i continue to fail. i truly hope that this website can help me and i pray that i can create a consistent habit of dissertating every day, to the finish line.
