I have been interested in writing a book for quite a while, but have a foggy brain and no motivation.
Im trying to decide if I should enrol in an online writing course next year, but also wondering will I have the motivation to do it.
A psychologist I saw a few times this year believes I have PTSD from the two armed robberies I was in, in 2006.
Due to this I have made my world smaller by cutting out activities I used to do eg. fencing, going out, parties, and not leaving the house much, so as to feel safe.
Home is my safe place. I wish I never had to leave it, EVER.
A result of doing this is making my mind bored and is partially the reason I am depressed.
She told me of a PTSD clinic at one of our universities and I have been on their waitlist for a few months.
I have my initial appointment in January to see if I meet the criteria to be able to do the program.
I have bought a couple of books online about writing. Maybe if I can motivate myself to read those, maybe I can motivate myself to the do the online course.
