Thank you <3 You can do it!! Actually, if you don't mind, I can share some of that ol' therapy knowledge with you to get you started (this really helped me), for free--
So I have been going through like....behavioral therapy. Routines and things, so we did a schedule of the week, and it looked like;
The Action / When, How & Where / The thing that stops me / What solves this problem / The end result
So to the action you'd put, for example, doing the dishes, to the 2nd part it would be you, at home and then you'd put in the day when you would do this (daily or just a weekday), then the 3rd part is what is the reason you are avoiding it. Avoiding behaviour is the biggest thing stopping a depressed person from functioning. For example, the reason for me was physical pain, So I would ALWAYS avoid doing the dishes, -because it hurts-, even if it wouldn't be so every time. So the solution for it was to take my medicines and doing it daily, so I wouldn't have to do the dishes for long. Then the end result is what is the experienced and expected end result of you completing this task. So cleanliness, and a better mood.
The goal is to set reasonable goals that you can repeat every week, like essential tasks daily, and then once per day some days of the week stuff like, cleaning the toilet, vacuuming or dusting for example. In the chaos it's super easy to just look at it and despair like "where do I even start", but this provides a light schedule to stick to and start working on
Thank you so much! I'm missing my rugs coz they're being washed so it's not as cozy but FAIRYLIIIIGHTS
