I think I use my ADHD and my fibromyalgia as excuses

I have ADHD and fibromyalgia, and sometimes I feel like I use them as excuses because I don't know how to get up and make myself do basic things that need to get done, and then say it's because I can't do them. :/

Try to refrain your thoughts. Instead of seeing it as an excuse, maybe see it as a gentle reminder that you struggle a little in an area others may not and that is still okay. Ever tried practicing mindfulness?

I also have this, and I think itโ€™s important to remember that this is a really debilitating disease and not every day is the same. Sometimes yes we do make excuses for ourselves but also remember that often your body lacks a little bit more than others. Donโ€™t be too hard on yourself itโ€™s okay ๐Ÿ˜Š

I too have both fibromyalgia and ADHD and it is so difficult sometimes. I think that when I was doubting myself about the truth behind what is the real reason? Was often both in addition to the fear of hurting myself in the process. We are in so much pain everyday that it becomes a fear of ours. Or at least it is mine. Know that you're really not the only one in that situation. <3

Fibromyalgia can be reeeaally debilitating. While I don't know you, I feel like maybe you're being too hard on yourself ๐Ÿ™‚
