Heyy OK so since the whole virus I've been at home with my 2 kids and my depression has got bad. I'm literally slacking on everything. The problem is I have major OCD with my cleaning. And having both the kids home it just seems like a mammoth task now. My house isn't dirty things do get done but once a week I normally have a boost of energy and do a massive house clean just to freshen up everything, but since this I haven't had that at all and I'm stuck in a massive circle I get depressed cause there's mess but I don't have the energy to do anything so it gets left. Then back to square one again it makes me upset seeing all the crap.. So yesterday I had enough I actually wrote down a list of all the things I wanted to get done. And lo and behold today I am on it!! I feel pretty good today I'm taking breaks between cleaning each room and eating little but regular but it's getting done. I just thought id share this see if it helps anyone else!! It might or it might not.. However your feeling today I'm sending hugs and you can do this!! Together we are strong!!!!

I have heard of a few people feeling the same as you are. It reminds me of when people come over to stay for the weekend and everything is untidy and so when they leave, you clean up and get life back to the calm and orderly place it once was.

Can you draw up a weekly timetable?

Exactly.. I'm currently doing one the night before just looking around see what needs to be done. I think doing a whole week's worth will be quite daunting so I'll do night before then once I'm back on track I'll do a weekly schedule 😁
