Do you find it hard to do everyday tasks

I do. I find it so difficult to find the willpower to get up and cook, or clean. Somehow I manage to keep up only because of my kids and I don't want them in a bad environment but it gets so difficult.

 Sometimes, yes, I do find it VERY hard to do just my normal daily tasks, such as showering, doing dishes, maybe running out to the grocery store, making dinner, etc. It really sucks because as the mom and the "woman" of the house, those are things that are just kind of expected of me, and I know in reality it's NOT too much for my family to expect these things from me, after all, I don't work, so it should be easy, but sometimes it's just NOT! I understand how you feel.

I can relate. It is a struggle just to get out of bed some days, but I do it because I need to go to work to support myself and my daughter. I am a single parent so if I don't do it, no one will.

With the chores, I have good days and bad days. Sometimes I will have a bad week. Last week I was sick and having more anxiety than usual, and didn't get as much done as I would have liked -- really got next to nothing done except keeping the two of us dressed/fed daily, and doing the dishes every couple days.

I definitely struggle with motivation on a regular basis. You're not alone.

In my depressions or pain flare-ups definitely.  There are days that I feel so bad where I just try to get one thing done. At least its accomplishing something.

Do you have an SO, friend or family member that can help?
