I've been depressed for 3 weeks, please help me.

Posted , 4 users are following.

I have been depressed for about 3 weeks now. 

I tried talking to my parents about this but my mom said that I was stressed because my final exams are in 2 weeks.

When I sleep it takes me at least 2 hours to sleep. This is been going on for an year now. Sometimes at night I feel someone is in my room which freaks me out. Even if I have a good day and i dont think about something scary I can't sleep. I really can't concentrate on my studies. Whenever I open my books I cannot focus on it. That's not it. I feel bad almost everyday. I feel like I cannot accompalish anything. I feel like I will just have rejections in my life.  I have many friends I talk to them but still can't feel better. 

Please help me.

    Hello. It sounds like you suffer from anxiety. I also do. It can convince you that something is wrong or scary. There is help. You need to contact a doctor and counsellor to get back on track,

      Visiting councellor would not be possible right now because firstly I have to tell my Parents about this and make them understand that I suffer from anxiety. 

      Thank you for your help smile

    Hello Eva

    Personally I do not feel medications would help you this close to your Examinations.

    When I was studying I would get the same feeling as your Anxiety, I become unintrested in my subjects and my Examinations. I suffered Anxiety, fear and confusion the more I researched the worse I felt and I would site at my desk in my bedroom looking at my books and it seemed nothing was going in. I tried all ways to study and I was really stuck.

    One thing that did help was to have a day off at the weekend and go out with friends or any other activities you enjoy.

    Study in bites, of say one hour, then rest for 15mins and study again for another hour then another 15 mins rest and move on through your studies in a more relaxed way.

      Thank you so much for your suggestions but I have tried doing this. It still didn't helped me. I mean sometimes for studies but not the sleep. And as I couldn't get much sleep I feel tired all the day which then stops me from studying with focus.

      Thank you anyways for your reply :D

      If you are having problems with your sleep paterns, this can be caused if you are not following reguar times especially if you are studying late on through the night. If we suffer anxiety this can affect regular sleep paterns so try and return to what you know works.

      Studies become counterproductive if we start burning candels both ends.
