I find useless tasks useless when they're useless to do, when you gave up on life. Kinda like going to college when you're gonna die of cancer in a few years. Exept, I'd love to die in a few years. Or getting dressed all fancy when you're gonna sit on your butt on the computer the entire day alone.

Ha, I bet I'm one of the biggest outcasts on this site, or any SA site, or any site actually, literally. You'd really be suprised.

-Do you shower or bath regularly? Just about everyday, but this, along with the grooming question is actually part of my anxiety. I can't stand to have anyone see me not looking 'perfect'. Though of course, I don't actually believe I look good at all, I just am compelled to go though the full hair styling/make up routine everyday out of anxiety.

-Eat a balanced diet? I am a Michael Pollan obsessed whole foods hippy. I make everything from scratch, so I would say yes.

-Participate in good grooming? (shaving, applying deodorant) brush teeth? Answered in #1

-Wash clothes and take care of your clothes? For the most part. The way our house is set up, I have to go outside onto the main street to get downstairs to do laundry. My SA has a hard time with this, so my husband does the laundry, since I will put it off to avoid any solo social run ins during that quick walk.

-Socialize? No. I have no friends here at all. However, when I am 'home', I do have a small group of really good friends that I hang out with. I am capable of more social things when I am with them.

-Exercise Regularly? Not right now. I was doing yoga, but we haven't gotten curtains at this new place and the only space to do yoga is my front room and I am worried about people seeing me.

-Avoid Drugs? Most of the time, except during summer at the lake, with my friends.

-Avoid Alcohol? Same as the drug question. I am not much of a drinker.-

-Get proper sleep? Not at all. I have a weird sense of when I am tired. My body naturally wants to be up at night, so I tend to go to bed very late, 3am or so. Then get woken up any time between 8 and 10 by my 4 year old. I tend to nap in the day, like a child, lol.

-Take vitamins or other meds regularly? No. I am horrible with remembering meds, and it takes me a long time to get into a routine with them-- which is awful with psych meds, gives me crazy headaches and stuff. I don't even have a doctor right now, or any meds. Bad, bad, bad and it is really affecting me but getting a new doc and GOING there is causing anxiety so I am avoiding it. /sigh
