Procrastination with Bipolar Disorder

When procrastination becomes a way of life, it might have turned into an avoidant behavior. This is quite common in people with bipolar disorder.

excerpt from:

I have had procrastination since I was a young child. I had Bipolar Disorder as well. Now I find that there is a connection. I never do anything until the very last moment. School reports were always done the night before.

I do have to admit though I work better under pressure. It forces me to do things I don’t want to do and I usually do a better job.

I hope this gives someone some hope for future procrastination.

      I procrastinate over most anything. I don’t think my stress is it. Especially since I work better with a deadline hanging over my head. Though I guess sometimes I procrastinate because I don’t know what decision to make.

    I have terrible trouble with procrastination. I do not even notice the time go by most of the time. All of a sudden something is two weeks late and then two months late and I do not know what happened.
