I am a hopeless case. I graduated highschool with a C average then I went to a community college and got C's. I worked my way up to a more major university and I can barely make D's. I cant pay attention in class, I am depressed and I can barely get myself out of bed to attend class, I dont care about the material-none of it is interesting to me. Id rather be working earning money then sitting in class.
I cannot take a test for the life of me...I clam up and forget all the information, or the little of it that I memorized. I can't study, I can't read text books that well without losing my concentration.
I cry about this, it upsets me so much because I want an education so badly, and I try so hard to make it work but it is going nowhere but downhill and im getting into HUGE debt. I also have to work 32 hours a week on top of taking 15 credit hours in order to survive and support myself. I am burned out to the core and it kills me to see other students understanding material when I cant. I am pretty, bright,creative, and innovative...but I cannot do textbook work or mathmatics...I hate sitting in lectures, my attention span is so short.
I need some serious help. Ive heard of college not being right for everyone...but do I fall into this category??? Others have also told me that my only problem is that i'm taking too much on and I need to cut it down a lot like to only 2 classes a semester to keep my focus.
Maybe I have a learning disability or ADD or something...I feel like such a failure that I cant make A's and B's like i'm supposed to be doing. This is constantly on my mind, but the more I try to study, the more frusterated and depressed I get.
Should I go to a doctor?
