> I just ordered "Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder" by Marsha Linehan and hope to just focus on doing the course. I have the teacher's manual to this book which I had ordered by mistake years ago and hope I do better with the actual course book.
I feel like you just described me! I think I remember that i have the teacher's manual to that book somewhere. In my house that meens it is packed up somewhere never to be found.
I hope you start doing better as I hope I do. Having a reason to get up in the morning makes a big difference. Yesturday I had planned to go on an easy Sierra walk. Of course I never got up in time. Today I was to get up to go to church. I would have to get up at around 9:30 and I got up around 2:30. Obviously I did not make it. Next week I am going to make plans so that someone will take me. When I am obligated to someone else I will get up and go.It is strange, but the very same things I want to do and cannot motivate myself to do I will easily occomplish if someone else is involved.
I do not really have much more to add.
Thanks for letting me know I am not alone. Especially that I have read some of your posts and you seem quite inteligent. It makes me think maybe I am not so dumb.
