When dealing with chronic pain and fatigue, how do you find the motivation/energy to clean? I need to clean urgently and between life and college, I never have the energy and am in pain constantly. Transitioning from being in bed to moving around is an impossible chore, how do you personally deal/move past this?

      Sounds just like what I’m currently dealing with, some days I just can’t and I have to pick and a choose what’a important to do that day but then I’m behind chores or other stuff 😩 sometimes family helps but I hate to ask and bother that I just don’t do it u till it gets bad and then I have no choice.

      In the UK the government funds my care needs due to low income but also they have said they can pay for a carer to clean, cook etc . Anything I need. Is there something like that available for you even if you don't need actual care hours?

      I also have a disorder which prevents me mentally from starting tasks. I have no one to help me with the cleaning either ://

"Try to start with something extremely small.. for example if you need to clean the bathroom.. space out what you need to do. It helps if you write it down on paper or use your notepad on your phone… put down everything you need to do in the bathroom and then do one task at a time and mark it off… rest in between.. it takes longer to get it done but that’s the only way I found I’m able to at least get some things done." Another person suggested, "for me making to-do lists helps start the day and organize everything and having a way to reward yourself at the end of the day once you’re finished everything is a nice way to motivate yourself!"
