I don't mind your asking. My daughter just turned 5. She's a handful, and like yours, my husband is inordinately helpful. There have been periods I've had to be a single Mom and I don't remember how I survived. Meds must have been working. It seems like he does everything. I was thinking of starting a post about that -- spouses/partners who take care of us -- is it helpful or enabling?

You mentioned driving -- do you not drive? I have a job but I can't manage to go to the grocery store or do other errands so my husband does all that stuff.

I agree - I don't think it's about self-motivation. I've tried all that. The only time I'm motivated is when my meds are working well. Ugh.

Other times I feel sharp and alert and work flies effortlessly from my fingers. I can't think it's a change in motivating myself, because if anything I work far harder (trying to make myself work) when I can't work than I do when I can.
