Default No drive to do anything?

So my regular doc referred me to another therapist after the last one I saw regularly moved... anyways I spoke with them on the phone and they mailed me the new patient information that I have to fill out and return. I filled it out the day that I got it, but it's been about 2 months and I've not returned it yet. I don't really feel like going to the post office and paying to mail it. Nor do I feel like calling them to figure out where to bring it in person. I want to meet with them, but I just have such little hope for them doing anything helpful for me that I just don't do anything. Then I worry about it, and it makes the problem worse, and it's just a big bad cycle. Hooray for avoidance.

How do you break your avoidance cycles?

Well usually I have a long mental arguement and eventually I realize that the only thing that will make me feel better is just to get up and do what I need to do. I try to remind myself that I will feel really good when I get things done.

I find putting things off just makes it harder.
