I’m a student doing two courses simultaneously and from June 2018 to March 2019 I attended college for 12-14 hrs a day and then studied for about 4 hrs usually till midnight and that was my first time away from home . In December 2018 I started noticing signs of apathy , low motivation and concentration. I no longer had any interest in studying, performing well in exams . By February - March , I was beyond care - I didn’t care what I ate , I was not excited by going out for dinner , I stopped studying altogether.
But the fact is that I have very crucial exams coming up next month , and I can’t afford to be like this . All the work I put in till December will go waste . I need someone to help me out here . PLEASE .
I thought I had been sleeping a lot less , so from February, I cut back on studies and slept more . My mood has generally improved since then . I’m sometimes sad and sorry for myself.
I consulted a psychiatrist who told me I just need to relax a bit and exercise. It hasn’t worked.
I think I have low dopamine levels.
Please suggest something.
Thank you for hearing me out .
