I haven't been able to motivate myself to do anything lately. By lately I mean the past year or so but now it seems worse than ever. I find it hard to do anything, even making a sandwich. I told my friends I'd hang out with them this weekend but once again I "forget" to call. I just don't feel like doing anything. Even writing this feels like a waste of time and hard to do. I'm depressed but also just a waste of space, I haven't accomplished anything in so long. I'm a huge procrastinator. I have to lie my way out of things so I ca stay home and do nothing, where i feel safe. I have to take a shower today, make sure my hair is right and same wth my skin. There's just nothing to do, and if there was I don't feel like doing it you know?

It's very hard to describe. whatever.

I feel the same way. It's easy to get into that rut too. It seems the longer you don't do anything the eaiser it is to say "well what's the point now?" I soo want to find the motivation to get up and do something .. anything but :shrug: I just cant find the will power. At this point I'm telling myself it's just the weather and when it gets nicer I'll start going out doing things seeing people. Or when my face is clear. It's what's keeping me going right now. I know Ive gotta do something soon. The longer I just lay around on the computer.. the harder it's gonna be to stop.

maybe this Info will cheer you up, its a amusing

For generation, people are not only using garlic because of its medicinal value, but traditionally, people have rubbed their bodies with it, buried it besides their bodies in coffin, draped it on household walls and even prayed to it. This great bulb has a lot of benefits, because no other plant has been held out for so long as a cure for so many human ailments. That's why garlic has been considered as the "Wonder Drug". Garlic has been used medicinally for many years for treating bites, tumors, ulcers, snakebite, wounds, headaches, heart diseases, cancer, pimples, measles and many more. It also prevents infections such as the common cold, cough because of its Anti-bacterial, Anti-fungal and Anti-viral property.

Hi,

Everywhere in the world there are people with the same problem, me as well (i am in the Netherlands).

For me, i was afraid to go out of the house because of my acne, people always seemed to look at me, and collegues and friends always have to got to say something about how it looks.

Anyway, there are solutions to the problem.

The best idea i will give to you is: See a doctor, specialist, dermatologist and get the help that you need.

The second idea is, go out and find people with the same problem and talk about it.

Find a hobby to distract yourself from that what might become an obsession,.. just go sporting, fitness, or boxing, dancing, or anything to keep yourself busy, go and find out what it is that you like to do and do it.

Anyway, you live your life,... so do not care about what others say or how you think they look at you, it is not worth it.

Good luck.

before accutane? yeah. I've always been a slacking no good sonofagun. There are many things I want to do but I just cant get myself to do them.

at the end of the day I'm so concerned about my appearance and other BS that I have no room for my goals. Today I tried writing (I want to write a book or short story or something) but I ended up on the computer again. I've been on since about noon (its almost 5 here now)

its a normal weekend for me. I did however get out and see 300 on friday, which is the best movie ever.

Yeah I can sympathize as I was exactly where you were a good 2 years ago. Didn't wanna leave my house, hang with friends or just plain do anything except go on the computer and sleep.

Can't really offer any great advice other than you'll just get tired of doing nothing eventually. I know I did.

you know at least ur friends are ppl who dont judge you according to your skin so you should just hang with them. im sure they will make you feel much better. it beats sitting inside feeling sorry for myself. i know im miserable about 70% of the time but my close friends make me feel better. you know just foolin around with them. i know how hard it is though. i feel awful and soo depressed gettting ready to go out for my friends bdays and i keep on finkin oh gosh i look soo ugly but you just have to forget and focus your thoughts on something else.

You have to force yourself to find some sort of motivation or else you are going to sink lower and lower and it will be even harder to get out. Do something now while you still sort of care rather than waiting until you don't give a crap either way. Nobody can help you but you - so start.

Just look at it this way: if you DO get out and do something (anything) then do you really think you're going to look back on it and say,"Gee, I wished I didn't get out, and just sat at home feeling crappy?" I guess what I mean to say it, what's the worst that could happen?

I totally empathize with you. I have gone through the same thing many a times, and sill do fairly often. But the truth is, when I force myself to get out, I never regret it. Even if it's just a drive down the street to the park, or a trip to Target to buy nothing.
