Still struggling, but hanging in there - woohoo!

I was struggling with motivation to stick with it. Then both my computer and my backup broke down and I thought I would go bonkers. I didn't realize how much info - pictures, contacts, calendars, and passwords I would have to redo - whew - I got tired just writing about it - lol.
I finally got over the hump. I now can see my computer desk, have donated a couple of large bags of clothes (although I must admit I bought some when I was trying to stay away from buying anything except necessities).
Another challenge I struggle with is starting and maintaining routines and schedules. As a new semester starts, I need to conquer this insomnia, and make time for eating, exercising, getting rid of stuff, being better about taking medication on a regular schedule, homework, housework, family and friends. I really admire people who do that well.
Anyone got any suggestions from their own experience about creating and sticking to schedules and maintaining balance at the same time?
Even when I block out extra time, I have a hard time letting go and getting my butt out the door or on to the next thing on the schedule. Hmmmmm - hard time letting go?
Maybe I hoard time, adding too many tasks without letting go of others? I always underestimate the time something takes leaving no wiggle room if something doesn't go smoothly. And I never seem to learn from my experience.
I heard soemwhere the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over again, expecting a different outcome. So far that makes me certifiable - aaaaaaaaaaaaargh!
Working on sanity - step by step.
I won't give up. That is simply not an option.
