Just getting through a day is hard. Everything seems to get disorganized in 5 minutes -- no sooner do I get focused and try and straighten up -- things will look good but don't open a closet or drawer -- something might fall out, But I can't function with the clutter, disorganization -- it makes me depressed -- I want to be able to find sturff and not waste time looking over and over for it. Everything seems complicated -- whenever there is orgainzing thoughts, paper work or organizing at work -- it seems to take me forever and I lose track -- too much to remember -- overwhelming -- Yet I never seem to have the time to get it done -- either I get paralyzed by the extent of what has to be done and I do nothing -- except walk around, etc. Or I'm compulsive and have to get it all done now -- and please don't interrupt me because I'll get pissed off. But even after doing that thats only the surface there is sooooooo much to do. The teacher said my daughter has trouble managing her time -- gee I wonder why -- could it be me? Just adding on something else that life throws you -- like my step father being in the hospital for almost 2 months -- I hardly have time to see him -- the kids and their schedules, etc. and working and just doing the balanacing act -- which I'm tired of doing. Is anything ever easy -- I'd just think it's ridiculous to go through this way of feeling day in and day out -- needs to be more than that Get rid of the anger, frustration, etc. Instead of starting a project at night after kids are sleeping (9:00 or after) -- I'm too tired to start a project -- b ut looks like the only time to start one, but I'm too tired to start, or am afraid I won't finish. Example -- painting my front door. Cleaning out the shed. Yard cleanup, laundry, house cleaning , work p/t 20-=26 hours a week, clean out papers -- I must do that a few times a week =-- it builds up that fast -- and it makes me crazy and I can't remember anything. I like just maintaining the plants and flowers -- I don't want to go crazy - because of al the things I'd like to do -- b ut not enough time. I can only do the best I can -- I have to believe that. thanks for your response to my carryinjg on. Hope I at least made some sense. Thanks, Debbie -- hard to get motivated even though I mean well and would love to have some of these things done and would be great to pay someone to do -- I'm dying to get a professional, but husband does not approve -- That would make my day and just have her come back periodically to keep me on track -- I think it's well worth the money. Let me hear what you guys out there do for support.
