I have been with anxiety since i was young and now being 20yo i am wanting to improve my everyday life values.
I find very frequently, to the point of it effecting my work and home life, that i am unable to get motivation, or i get a foggy brain, or i procrastinate. I am unsure which one at this stage. I am seeing if anyone has some ways to over come these?
I struggle keeping up with personal hygiene like washing teeth, i struggle washing dishes or clothes. I struggle putting rubbish from my room in the bin. I struggle focusing on topics that i find unappealing. I also struggle to eat and drink. Its has become particularly bad since moving out of home at the start of this year. I am on an SSRI anti depressant and go see a psychologist every 4-6 weeks. As well i have tried EMDR therapy (only 2 sessions).
My motivation to get up for work is always pretty good. I will wake up on my first alarm at 4am mon-fri and go for a shower straight away. I find i am starving myself so much/making myself dehydrated enough that i start getting nauseated and feel like vomiting. My blood sugar seems to drop (not diagnosed with the GP) so i have a little sugar like a jelly bean or a little bit of juice and i feel good again within minutes. I believe this is from the antidepressants however i feel that not eating or drinking much does not help and possible makes the symptoms worse.
I also want to see the GP regarding having ADHD. I dont have proof myself ( my parents might from school reports) with my lack of focus or inability to stay focused. I have social anxiety too, so socialising for me to new people is very tough. I also find that i can be talking and completely forget the earlier part of the conversation.
Any and all help will be appreciated. Thanks Everyone!
