Hey all, I make ToDo lists for several reasons and generally find them helpful. However I also often find myself paralyzed by internally demanding that I be 100% sure of the "best" or "optimal" task to do first. My OCD and anxiety go through the roof and incapacitate me into inaction and... I get nothing done :/ I've wracked my brain for any reasons as to why I'm terrified of not doing the optimal task first but I just can't put my finger on it. I have severe TRD so it could be that I tell myself that I "have" to do the most important/best tasks whilst I'm feeling well enough to be able to do them, and that disaster would ensue if I didn't. But I just don't know TBH. Anyone else get this task-prioritization OCD & anxiety? Any insights, techniques or tips? I tried randomly ordering the tasks today which helped somewhat, for example. Best to all, Pete P.s. due to the TRD I'm crap at replying but I will eventually reply!
Just wondering thoughts of other people. I tried getting some work but unemployment is so high there is not much I can do, Since I reveal MI. So I thought about helping older people getting onto the net, so they could communicate with other family members, I offered training and a couple of free laptops. But heard nothing back, with chasing them. So I tried doing drug research but the nearest place is 30 odd miles away and I do not drive. So I have a new plan to go to a local uni that trains dentist, the only thing that worries me... other then the agoraphobia and haptophobia. Plus my teeth are in bad condition, so I feel like I am helping someone, but the thoughts make me think otherwise. I guess I am asking that if I can not put much into sociality maybe I can help others?? Thank you for reading id
