    i get like that.... when your tryna revise and nothing makes sense.... my mind is usually miles away, caffeine helps me get thru tho at times sometimes it gets a lot worse... any way try set yourself goals on what you need to do each day and try to achieve them, once you get thru with the stuff you need you'll feel so much better! good luck tho hope things get better

    You probably have ADD. You can get drugs for that.

    Yeah setting yourself goals is all you can do really and hopefully achieve them.

    I might try that. Thanks.

    I didn't even know there was such a thing as ADD until you mentioned it. It does sound like that is part of it,

    No not really.

    More obsessing over other things so not being able to concentrate on work as my mind are on those things. I do try my best to switch the other thoughts and focus but it doesn't seem to work. It always there no matter what I do- its almost like it is locked in my brain and there is no way of getting it out.

    You need to get some help. I know it is difficult, but go and talk to your GP and they will refer you for some support if necessary. I suffered from low mood (not quite as bad as depression) for around 3 years before I did anything about it. I finally decided enough was enough and saw my GP. They then referred me for counselling and things are much better since I completed my treatment.

    ye if you can't concentrate so much that it affects your life you should get it checked out. I'm trying to get diagnosed for it atm at a mental health clinic. A big thing that happens is I always switch off and start day dreaming if someone talks straight for more than 5-10 seconds lol.

    Have you been diagnosed with any mental health issues? If not, to speak to your GP and see what's wrong.

    What do you even say to your GP? Did you just make an appointment one day and said you were depressed or something?
