I've also managed to accomplish something today! I picked up my room, including taking care of the laundry. After that I took a break and I started thinking a nap might be nice, but I got up and got back to work picking up the kitchen. I'm now on another break before I tackle the living room. Normally if I stop after I've managed to get going, I never work up the initiative to get back to it.
I'm supposed to take my daughter to a pool party tonight, which will be a good test because besides depression, anxiety, and compulsive behavior, I also suffer from social phobia. Even with the Paxil I disliked social gatherings and would avoid them, but at least I was able to say my name in a group of people without suffering from a panic attack! I don't particularly want to go now, not because I want to avoid it, but because I want to get done with this cleaning and get on with my stitching! This is actually good news because despite my love of stitching and wanting to do it, I often found myself avoiding it. Once I got going with it, I was okay, but lots of times I'd put off picking up my needle. So being avid to stitch is a really good feeling!
