Well, not from another person. For some tasks, I need to nag myself into doing them. But I am naturally a worker and when things must/should be done, I do them regardless of my feelings about them.

Uh... I need to be reminded of what is necessary for normal people to do in normal jobs... While I keep up the pretence of understanding, most things are unfathomable to me. Like meetings, and minutes, and handouts, and presentations, and work emails... Ugh. Let me just roll around in black clothing talking about "breathing through the spine roll" in a calming voice
I thought of something else: I need to be asked what I'm feeling sometimes... I forget that a kind-hearted partner will need to know these things.
