Lack of motivation


I went to bed early last night. Partly because I was up all weekend playing video games and drinking with my brothers, and partly because I just didn’t know what else to do. Today, I should be working on school, but I’m not. This afternoon I should be going to treatment, but I don’t want to. I could be knitting, but I just don’t have the motivation for anything. I barely got through a shower. And I had to really work up to taking it. And only because I knew I actually can’t skip treatment tonight because it could jeopardize my insurance coverage. If I wasn’t going anywhere (like I want) I wouldn’t have showered. I stayed in bed 2 hours late. I haven’t eaten today. I’m considering taking a nap, just to pass time.

  1. Ugh story of my life at the moment! I have no motivation for anything either, everything I do literally takes all my willpower. I hope you fond where you put your motivation soon, you certainly need it at this point in your life. Good on you for still going to treatment 😊

  2. Can certainly relate to that. Ignoring life and responsibilities is basically my daily routine now. Do I have a report due in 2 days? Yes. Have I started it at any point in the last 4 weeks? Nope. Maybe I will tomorrow, we will see. I really admire that you were able to make yourself do what you need to do, you’re a better person than me.

  4. I know how you feel. I’ve been putting off school work as well. I haven’t been motivated to do anything but sit around. I keep telling myself that I can start doing other things once I get this work done, but it doesn’t seem to help at all. I don’t know about you, but even when I’m in a “better” mood, I find that I’m more productive on certain days of the week. It’s actually kinda weird. Wednesdays and Fridays are good for me. Not sure what that’s about. I hope that you find a way to get your school “mojo” back. I spoke with my BFF/Mentor today and I’m being more productive than I’ve been in a while. Maybe talking to someone who just “gets you” may help.

  5. it’s so hard to kick yourself in the butt when you have low motivation. I’ve been there. I applaud you for getting in the shower, number one, and going to treatment, number two! You don’t have to do everything in one day. The one thing you do matters more than a few other things you didn’t.

  6. I can relate… I have barely got out of bed for a week. 😞
    Admittedly having a shower does make me feel a tad more with it – even if I’m not going anywhere – but gosh is it easy to not.
    Well done for sticking with your treatment. 🙂

  7. I admire you so much for keeping going. I know what it’s like being that tired. And toy probably do need a lot of rest. It’s tiring going through therapy. You’re worth the fight. Well done keeping going through the struggle. Xx

  8. Being tired is so hard! I’m feeling the same way. Maybe it’s time to bust out some bath bombs and just be kind to yourself. You deserve it. What you’re doing takes so much energy!

  9. What a simple, but yet effect post. I’m sure this applies to many people, including myself. Keep up the great work! I’d love it if you could look at my Christian blog too –
