    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    No motivation to work

    Title says most of it, but not all.
    As I said in a slightly unrelated discussion, I'm struggling with my dream school a lot mostly because I can't get anything done until I'm panicking because it's due the next class.
    Pattern goes like this:
    -get homework
    -forget about it for a while
    -pull it out on the night I should be doing it
    -stare
    -stare
    -feel increasingly disconnected from senses
    -stare
    -don't do it
    Meanwhile, I'm trying my absolute hardest to work up the willpower to do it, but I don't even have the willpower to do that. I only function (shower, eat, go to bed, wake up, get in car) because I am obliged to by my grandparents. I am at the point of congratulating myself for responding to a question. I cannot function at all.
    I don't care what happens in the long term, I just need to not fail school.
    What am I supposed to do.

    i'm really sorry youre going through this right now. i know what you mean. it takes all of your energy just to get out of bed and get dressed. people call you lazy. it's much more than that. from my experience i recommend getting help and possibly starting some medication. it's taken me some time to find the one that works for me, but i am so glad i have it. i have more energy and motivation to do things. good luck.
