Does anyone else struggle with finding the motivation to do something you are interested in? Its very hard for me to pursue my passions and get out of bed. Any advice?

      My main symptom that first got me into the doctors office was a lack of any motivation. At the time back in high school it was diagnosed as depression but it's now clear it was from previously undiagnosed adhd. Lately I've been asking myself "what can i do, right now?". If i don't have the ability to do laundry for whatever mental of physical reason, i choose something else I feel capable of doing, like picking up trash from my desk or something. I do that with "fun" activities too

      I always get all excited with life about to make it better set alarms for me to have a normal sleeping schedule and get everything ready then the next day I blow it.

      I have a hard time getting the motivation to draw(or I have the motivation but lack the inspiration) sometimes for weeks at a time

      Same here. I like to day dream about them, but I think the fear of not being able to actualize them keeps my from trying.
