I have been diagnosed with borderline and schizoaffective disorder. I'm just wondering - does borderline cause chronic avolition? (inability to pursue goals, not motivated to do anything, lack of hygiene etc) I have avolition quite bad. I only shower once a week, don't dress if I staying home, don't clean house much or brush teeth or hair much, can't work etc. It's really disabling!

It does for me. I struggle to motivate myself. I am very sorry you are struggling with that.
