Depressed and demotivated, don't know what to do watch

    For the past couple of years, I haven't been very motivated. After being diagnosed with depression a few months ago, I figured that the depression was probably the cause of it, at least in part.

    As my AS exams rapidly approach, I'm still not motivated to do any work for them. The GP forwarded me to a psychiatrist, but I don't want to go. I don't like being helped and I like being happy - I would prefer to suffer depression. After doing a little bit of research online, I suspect I may have Masochistic Personality Disorder. I also show all symptoms for severe ADHD, though I haven't asked the doctor about it.

    I think I may have these mental problems, which might account for why I don't care about doing well in these life-changing exams. I simultaneously want to do well and want to fail.

    I simply don't know what to do. I'm asking for advice in this post, but I don't even know what I'm asking advice for. Sorry for being unhelpful.
