Question Addicted to Quitting - December 30th 2011, 04:28 PM

I am addicted to quitting everything I start. Compulsive quitting is what its called. I have had over 10 jobs in my life, all less than a month of employment. I have tried College 3 times already, and all 3 have ended up with me quitting middle of the first semester. I would like to write a book, but quit. I dont follow through with anything that I start.

My true dream is to become a massage therapist and move to Maine to live out my life with my husband. I am very depressed and I have anxiety as well, and none of this helps my situation.

At times my mind gets cloudy and when I try to talk all I get is gibberish or stuttering. Sometimes I feel like the best place for me is a mental hospital. Should I admit myself?

It sounds like at the very least you have severe comitment issues.

It sounds more likely that you have a self destruction addictions (or possible fetish.) or a fear of sucess.

All three of those require psychological help from a trained specialist. You have the God given right to suceed, and to be happy and safe. Get help to ensure you don't self-sabatoge.

Hey there,
You don't need to admit yourself into a mental hospital straight away. Perhaps try and talk to a professional counselor or therapist first so that you can carry on your normal life while receiving help. Since commitment is something that you fear, it may actually help to have to continue living while you get help. Either way, you know you need some form of help so I'd encourage you to seek it.

s little, my papa told me to try just one more step. If you feel like you're at your limit with something, just try one more time.
