BS. There are plenty of people out there with clinical depression and anxiety and other physical, emotional and cognitive disabilities — including myself — that desperately want to get things done but can’t due to despair, fear, lack of energy, lack of motivation or pure and simple demoralization.

Projecting your ableist point of view on the problem — “you’re failing because you aren’t trying hard enough, you don’t *really* want it hard enough” — is irresponsible and damaging to people who need actual care and not patronizing advice.
