Can't concentrate, no motivation, and always want to be alone - May 30th 2012, 04:32 AM

I'm new here, and really need help/advice. Lately, I haven't been able to concentrate whatsoever. I'll have all my homework set out in front of me, but then just daze off. My memory hasn't been as good lately, and the only place I feel good is outside walking around my neighbourhood without anyone there or any distractions. Sometimes I'll just be home alone and lock myself in the bathroom or just sit in the shower. I don't have anyone to talk about this stuff with, and I'm too ashamed to ask my parents for a counselor. If anyone has any information or anything to say, it would really help. Thank you.

Hi there,

I was wondering if about how you are feeling at the moment? Have you felt or seen a change in your mood? Sometimes when we feel low we can struggle with consentration or maybe there's a lot going on with school work or at home and it's stressing you out? If there is anything, you can talk to us about it.

You say you feel better when you go out for a walk and you're on your own. How about if it's nice weather where you are, you go out to a park on your own and take your work with you and see if that helps a little? It might not help but it might also be worth the try.

Remember to eat well too. You need your energy to focus and work and tyr and get good hours sleep. If you want to talk to us, we're here. You're not alone and we'll try and support you as much as we possibly can do.

Keep your chin up

Has something happened that has started this off? Or has it been like this for a while.

I know this is exam season and if you have a lot on, your concentration and motivation can dwindle.

Do you have a library nearby or can you go outdoors and do some work. (I did an essay once in my back garden because it just felt right). I found I was easily distracted and the library because it was quieter helped me a lot.

If you ever want to talk, I'm here.

Take care and good luck.
