Today I am not a perfectionist!

I am a perfectionist.

Only, chronic pain stops me from being perfect.

In fact,it stops me being good at anything.

It stops me from working, training and socialising.

It’s made me depressed, anxious, unmotivated and unreliable.

What’s perfect about me now?

Right now? I’m perfect at nothing.

And today, that’s good enough for me.

  1. You don’t reveal how old you are. But, for the record I am 74 and 10 months old. I reveal that because, no matter how hard I have tried over the years I still am OCD/Perfectionist. And it has affected me too much. Seven children (2 boys and 5 girls) plus 10 GKids and 3 GGKs, and a challenging wife, I still can’t get over stressing over stress and worrying about worrying. “They” say there is still hope for me, but I am beginning to wonder. I hope you are finding a way to deal with it all.

    1. Thanks. I am 34 yrs old. I’ve had chronic pain for 4 and a half years and been diagnosed with depression and anxiety 2 months ago. Life is tough at the moment, but hopefully there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
