So I spent all of last week trying to follow my new chore schedule. It was so great to not have to make a decision about what to do each day. Everything was planned in advance from chores to meals and it took a lot of stress and anxiety away. The decision process was brought down to the bare minimum. All I had to do was decide to do it. Not as easy as it sounds, LOL. I have to admit that sometimes the procrastination got to me and some things were left undone or postponed. It's okay though. I'm not beating myself up over it. I'll just tackle it this week. I need to remain flexible with this process or I'll drive myself insane.
All in all, I'm satisfied. I tackled one of my problem spots that had me anxiety ridden; the laundry room. I wasn't able to finish all the laundry because I had to tackle the clutter first, but I should be able to finish everything come next laundry day.
I haven't taken medication for the ADD for a couple of years. I was on Strattera, and frankly, I hate how it made me feel. I felt light headed or numb and my appetite completely went away which made it really hard to plan meals and do groceries. This led me to try to overcome some of this on my own. I have an appointment to get re-evaluated for ADHD and social anxiety, and I have another one to begin treatment so I'm hoping that once I get back on medication and proper treatment that some of this will be easier.
