Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
What do you need assistance with? The other experts you've requested will have access to this thread.
I will wait for you to come online?
Is it something specific you want to post now? Only one expert can post back and forth to you at a time.
They will see their names as you've listed them (the same way I did) I'll assist you as best as I can.
I see now. What had happened is that perhaps this is perhaps due to anhedonia and you're using the term "lazy" when other people may misunderstand it. Being unmotivated and having low energy and poor concentration can indeed be found in different conditions both mental and physiological.
I do agree that one can try to do their best despite these problems. What is going to be the best for you may differ from another person with the same issues or someone without these issues. You're living your own authentic life. You know what your base line is (and your treating MD knows it most likely) That means- what is your usual level of functioning that is going to remain rather than get "cured."
By knowing what you can and can't do, you can set goals for yourself that would be realistic/achievable.
Anyone can have set backs- those who have any kind of an illness as well as those who do not. How one deals with this is what would lead to overcoming these set backs.
You're able to do your volunteer work and that shows a level of commitment, consistency and ability to do the work. And, you can go by those things that you've already achieved to decide what other things would be possible/doable for you to accomplish over time. Staying proactive would be of importance. Meaning- not giving up when disappointed or when things don't work right away. It also means, changing one's goals when needed. Making these goals something that you can remain interested and stimulated in pursuing. You can think of a saying by Confucius- "our greatest glory is not in never falling down, but in rising each time after we fall." That is how life is - with ups and downs for everyone.
When you've mentioned that
"6/10/12 11:17 PMbut the another expert said it's not my fault am lazy and so did my psychiatrist and care coordinator..."
Don't compare yourself to anyone else. Your experiences are your own that you've been struggling with. What is the similar is the presence of anhedonia. How you deal with that is individual to you. Others may be doing it differently since people have different coping skills.
Some tasks are not as stimulating/interesting as others. That applies for jobs as well. You could of found yourself disinterested because of some of those experiences. Then, there are the memory and energy issues you're having because of your psychiatric conditions. All of these factors ought to be taken under consideration.
A person can learn things without necessarily having to sit in a classroom.
