Having a Bad Morning

Postby RosaD » Sat Dec 14, 2019 4:12 pm

Getting out of bed is problematic. Off and on, getting up has been a issues for decades. Mornings were not safe at my childhood home. As an adult, it is still safer to stay in bed. I felt ridiculous for typing this. My adult home is safe, so why is this still an issue?

I have been making progress. I see it. But, sometimes (like now), I take a couple of steps in the wrong direction. I know the steps backward will not help. Still, I feel powerless not to take them.

That to say this.....I am no longer hiding the fact that I am having this issue. Not keeping the secret helps me not feel so ashamed. Maybe tomorrow, I can take three steps forward to make up for today.

How so?

What you have posted thus far is replacing one distraction for another. It is like cutting out sugar but pouring blue cheese dressing on the salad. It might seem like progress when it isn’t.

Not watching television but replacing it with online forums might seem like progress. It doesn’t get you out of the house. It doesn’t get you out of bed.

Note, I’m not saying you are not making progress. I’m only saying that it isn’t clear what that progress is given what you have posted.

Would you mind sharing? What progress have you made?
