Guitar Lessons: No Desire To Do Work. Just Stopped Caring?

OK its hard to explain. All my life Ive been working hard in school and listening in lessons, handing in homework etc. But the last two and most important years which actually count, ive just stopped. I dont know why. I know I need to work hard, my grades are the lowest theyve ever been, I dont listen in lessons, I dont work and now Im two yeard behind on work which I need to hand in next week.

Ive got some sort of mental block, the second I pick up a book or something, I just put it down and do something els and try to block out the fact that I have work to do. usually I pick up my guitar or play a game or something.

Ive asked a few questions and people have told me I suffer from anxiety/depression. Its a logical explanation since I feel like crap 99% of the time.

What the hell is wrong with me? Plus I have a crap report meaning I wont be able to go to college until next year.

    i think you got depression. try involved in regular exercise. Modern teenagers often spend vast amounts of their time in front of the computer or television.

    Sedentary lifestyles like this can create depression. Gym class does not usually provide enough exercise, so encourage your teenager to sign up for a sport after school. Also, limit computer and television time. for more information maybe you can search in here

    hope it help.

    Well, I’m not sure exactly what is wrong with you, but I do have a few suggestions.

    I know that everyone says you should “live in the moment”, but for your problem, think about your future, which all depends on your education. Think about what a great life you’d have if you went to a good college, and then got a high-paying job, so you’d never have to worry about money. All that can only be achieved through hard work.

    It’s not a mental block it sounds as if you are in a depression without a doubt. This would take away your ability to concentrate or even care about keeping in on the things you need to like your studies. Why don’t you go to the site This is the site for the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill you can find any information that you want about depression. You can find the chapter that is in your city or town. They are extremely helpful and reccomend or refer you to someone who can help you, this would be a psychiatrist. You can’t ignore this because it gets worse and doesn’t get better without professional help. With help you can get to your studies and pick up your grades and live a productive and fulfilling life. Without help you are stuck where you are and possibly worse depression. I hope that you will make the next step and get help so that you can do the things that you need to do always. Please do this and check out depression and symptoms. Nobody on this site can diagnose you only a psychiatrist. Please get help!

    If you feel like crap 99% of the time, something is definitely wrong. That’s not normal, assuming everything else in your life is reasonably normal. Have you seen a medical professional? I used to feel the same as you describe. Turns out I suffered from ADHD, depression and anxiety. Got on meds and now I’m a different person. It’s probably worth a visit to a doctor or shrink.
