I’m a stay-at-home wife and I really don’t get much done at home. Doing the basic housework like laundry, dishes, vacuuming is about all I ever get done, and it takes me several days to get motivated.
I’m very slow-moving and I get so sleepy. That’s when I try to go outside and get some exercise, but then I’m scared of people, and crowds, so it scares me to go outside much during the day, though I do go out to walk my doggie. But other days I give up and go back to bed.
I want to spend my time sewing and writing, but whenever I try it all seems to be too much.
Started therapy (mental health) a couple of months ago since I have a history of depression.
I wish I were energetic and accomplished things. I worry because I do so little compared to others that I’m one of those who “shouldn’t eat because they don’t work.”
I mean, getting the dishes done and fixing supper feels like an accomplishment to me, but I think I should be getting more done.
Also, I’ve given up on a job in the “real” world because I was so stressed when I was working some years ago.
Any charitable thoughts? Support?
Thanks for listening.
