Same here, but after so many years, the backlog has built incredibly. It is stressing me and getting out of hand. So I would try to not let it grow beyond a year's backlog. I don't do this well. First I'm bad with prioritizing enough that the essentials get done. Second I do many little things which I think help my mood, but they are stressful too. I believe there are other relaxing activities I should be spending time on, but I have trouble starting them and staying with them. I want to stop them and do something on the computer instead. For me it's a big problem. Third with socializing, I drain my energy too much, but I have trouble limiting it. I can't just tell my friend to go home early when they've already driven just to see me. I wish I could have smaller more frequent socializing instead of what I have. Even with posting or chatting on this site, I don't know if I can spend the energy. I need to have contact with other ill people who understand, but I'm not getting enough things done. I need and want to see a therapist, but that is a lot of energy to spend. That sounds good, you are guided by them, I wish I could do that. Yep. That's smart. I try and do this, but I just don't do well at it. I need to change this. It's getting in the way. I also don't know if I can change it. I've functioned this crazy limited way for so long.
