I have so many things I need to do, and plenty of other things that I want to do. The problem with this, for me, is that I can't decide on what to do or if I should do something first. Some tasks, such as personal care (bathing, cleaning my apartment, paying bills, etc.) I know I need to keep close tabs on. Other things, however, are long overdue (thank you notes, practicing piano, possibly changing my website SLIGHTLY, calling a friend, and plenty more).
So at this point, I know I have to get certain things done, but I'm feeling the urge to do the things that don't need to be done. Then, I can't decide which less important task to work on. The biggest issue that comes from this type of situation is the fact that by the time I decide on what to do, I've lost interest in it. In the end, I tend to not feel like doing anything, have nothing accomplished, and start to feel overwhelmed. Sometimes, it gets to the point where I shut down completely, and I CAN'T get anything done.
Occasionally, I wonder which part of this vicious cycle is due to the Aspergers, and which part is something that everyone goes through.
More often, however, I wonder how I'm going to break the cycle, or even prevent it in the first place.
