    Hi, I have recently noticed I don't have the motivation to do things anymore. I wouldn't say I am depressed or in a low mood and I've had blood tests because I am constantly fatigued and they came back normal, so I am really confused as to what causes this.
    Sometimes my potassium level fluctuates but not to extremes.
    I have absolutely no motivation to do uni work and its only the first week back, even stuff that interests me I just feel like I can't concentrate.
    I know some people can't wait to get a job after uni, but i'm even dreading that because I just do not feel up to it. Don't get me wrong on my days off I will do loads of stuff and wouldn't say I'm lazy so I just dunno whats going on and I don't want to get bad grades due to this.
    Anyone else like this??

    That's kinda how my depression started for me. You might find resources on mind.org useful. You could also see a doctor. While this is pretty typical of depression it can also be caused by things like vitamin deficiencies and other illnesses. It's worth checking out.
    Hope you feel better soon
