So I'm just wondering but how do some of you get motivation to get out of bed most days? Like I can't even motivate myself to get that far.

      We're rather up and down, we won't be able to get out of bed for several days sometimes but other weeks we'll have several days where we're really productive. I don't know what the difference is for us, perhaps just different people in front or sometimes it's that we got triggered. Giving ourselves a reward for getting up on the bad days really helps, like "if you get up to get water you can play animal crossing when you get back" sort of thing

      i feel you. today's that kind of day for me. been in bed and it's already almost the evening; still can't seem to get myself up. sometimes i schedule to do something outdoors or with a friend so that i'm forced to get out of bed. asking a good friend to hold you accountable and call/text in the mornings is nice, too. in the meantime, be gentle with yourself. i'm sorry it's been rough. you deserve self-care and that kindness from yourself, too. sending hugs ♡

      It's really about building a life that works for you. I have a cat I saved off the streets. I sleep in past noon because I want to. Finding little things. Like I'm a full grown adult right, but if I want to watch cartoons in the morning, that's what I do.

      Adopting a dog was the best thing I ever did for my health. It was 5 years ago before my health had declined as much, but she’s the only reason I get out of bed or leave the house or exercise on a lot of days 🐕 I know it’s not for everyone though

      I have issues with this as well. I'm at a total loss trying to find motivation and I need to get things done, but I just keep putting them off.

      It can be hard, I do have my days. Maybe try setting a goal for yourself and when you achieve it reward yourself. Just remember baby steps. Whatever you are going through it will eventually get better. ❤️
