    How do you motivate yourself when you're failing?

    Last week I was reading a chapter a day as well as doing all the online assignments. However, since getting the worst grade in class I've found it extremely difficult to read or do any work as I just feel like I'll fail again - which I realize is ridiculous because obviously I will definitely do badly if I don't do any work.
    Try not to think of others, and focus on what YOU want to achieve. My attitude is that every minute studying has the potential to be an extra mark

    Well it's funny how no one replied to me when I posted as myself, but I get 3 replies when it's anonymous. Just proves my point really.

    To be fair this is a fairly fast moving thread and some posts can get missed quite easily. And sometimes people dont know what to say to people or havnt been in a certain situation so dont have advice

    Yes, just to echo what PandaWho has said. For example, people who post about bipolar or anxiety I can't help much with as I don't suffer from them. But if you post about personality disorders or voices, and in some cases of depression, I can help.

    Anyone else feel so embarrassed and self conscious after they talk to someone and not during the convo? I never really used to be like this much but lately after talking to someone all I can think is that I made a fool of myself or said something cringy even if the convo went well and I feel ashamed and embarrassed even when I don't have a reason to be.

    Happened today after I ran into my cousin's partner in town and it was just a bog standard general 10 sec convo "hi how are you, hows my cousin? Tell her I'm asking for her. Bye." and I still felt it.

    Well tbf some people like myself dont know a lot about any of these things, sometimes i rep if i can relate but if i cant then i leave it to others because i dont want to patronise people by pretending i 'understand' when i have never been in that situation and can only give out support but sometimes hugs arent always appropriate

    I'm so sorry to hear that Have you spoken to close ones about it? I think you need all the support you can possibly get rn - I understand it must be scary :hugs:
    I have - my mum knows and the people who were at work when it happened. I don't really know what to do about it though :erm:

    Feeling kind of ashamed tbh.
    Ever do something rash because it felt like the right thing at the time and you couldnt really see past that moment all you wanted to do was relieve that impulse at that time.
    But then having come out of that frame of mind for a while at least temporarily you have time to reflect on how stupid a thing it was to do ._.
    not that it matters, doesnt affect anything paticuarly but idk wish i could get good at seeing the bigger picture sometimes in such instances

    Thank you - you're so kind! Not sure but thank you again Anon 1 :hugs: Is it normal to not actually know how you're feeling? As in, you're feeling sad and you know why you're feeling sad but its difficult to explain why and comprehend it?? I feel like I'm the only one who experiences this

    I occasionally do this as well. I even feel it with my friends (usually the ones I'm less close to) or family sometimes I usually worry about having overshared to them or having talked too much or having said something awkward or something...

    Ah right well that sounds like an awkward situtaion then. I assume youve got to get the letter from the psychiatrist?
    Yeah hopefully she would have written it and I can collect it on Thursday when I meet her.
