Knocked down. How to get back up?

Posted: 05 December 2013 - 07:18 PM
Hi LB :)

Please don't give up!
Grab a trash bag and go around filling it up with any obvious trash, take the bag out to the dumpster.
You CAN do this. :D
Then get all dishes into the kitchen, find & fill the sink with hot soapy water and get a bunch of dishes soaking.
Gather up & bag all dirty laundry.
Get all old food bagged and out.
If you have any pets get any pet mess you see cleaned up.
Make sure that all doorways and windows are clear.
That is what is needed in case of emergencies.
You have 2 full days and CAN get a lot accomplished.
Good luck and best wishes. :D

I have always been a hoarder/clutterer/etc. Not so serious that you can't see from one side of my apartment to the other, but enough that I know it is a sanitation issue and that I don't want to even be in my own apartment anymore.

I was informed of a city inspection and worked my tail off, by myself, to try and address the issue. I know that I didn't get it all cleaned but I still thought I did well considering what I started with... however the inspector came by today and failed my apartment. I have until Monday to fix it, but I seem to have lost the will to do so. I'm at that "why bother? it's never going to be good enough" stage and I just don't have the motivation or the time to keep going.

I don't want friends to help because they all live too far away and I don't want them to know about this part of my life anyway.
