I am a student. I used to be a very avid scholar but recently I can not concentrate on anything. Even when I am studying, there is something else going on in my mind, be it the most useless or random thought. I find it hard to study or solve questions without putting on music on my headphones. I can't remember the last time I concentrated solely studying for 15 minutes. I seriously lack motivation to the point that I would rather sit idly or sleep the whole day rather than studying. I did have a period which could be undiagnosed depression 2 years ago but I got it through via self-counselling. Could my condition be psychiatric or is it just a phase? One thing that translates to OCD is that I sometimes add up the time in my watch to decide about something I am not sure of. If it adds up to 13, I feel I shouldn't do it. I have consciously minimized that as well now. I can browse the Internet, watch YouTube videos for hours but study is main area I'm unmotivated about. Another thing I've noticed is that I've completely lost the urge to compete and succeed. Could it be ADD? Thank you for your help in advance.

Are you suffering from extreme depression? Does your depression episode continues for a long time and makes you feel too tired to get out of bed? Chronic depression is capable of turning your life upside down, causing turmoil with all your activities, thereby, spoiling your regular life totally. At times, a person can get so drained by depression that getting out of bed seems impossible because of fatigue. It is quite difficult to deal with such situations.
Here are some important tips on how to overcome your chronic depression and get out of bed.
- Be depressed upright: It is likely to be driven by the voices in your head during your depression. You should respond by replying to the voices that you are depressed, but you are going to be depressed outside. This is important, as activity and depression do not go well together. You should try to stop your thinking totally and put yourself in an automatic mode. Preparing to deal with thoughts from before is beneficial. When your body is in motion, it is easier to deal with the thoughts.
- Try to make it to the shower: When you do not feel like leaving your bed at all, you should try making it to the shower somehow. Taking a shower makes you a bit relaxed and diverted and you can expect relief from your depressive episode. This is an effective way to get yourself up and running from bed, instead of isolating yourself under the blanket. Taking a shower might bring you some hope and encourage you to step out of bed and do something productive. Even if you decided to be in bed all day strictly, a refreshing shower is likely to change your mind.
- Bribe yourself: You can try bribing yourself as a reason for getting out of bed. You can remind yourself how good you will feel after having a cup of hot coffee, or how nice it would feel to listen to a certain song while going to work.
It is important to give yourself a purpose or reason to get out of bed. Many people believe that they might feel like leaving the bed in spite of being heavily depressed, if they had a worthy purpose. It is very important for you to get involved in something. You might hate a job, or hate working, but it will give you a reason to divert from your depressive thoughts. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.
