Unhappy Getting All Worked Up...? - September 24th 2011, 08:55 PM

About 98.9% of the time while I'm in class (mostly Math) I'll get all pissed and depressed in class and then I have this feeling like "What difference does it make? I'll just stop trying, I don't get it, I never will. What's the point?" And then I'll get home and stare at my notes and then the one of my questions and evidently I don't understand all of it and then I get pissed off at myself for being so stupid and not paying attention.
I'm just tired of this cycle of the "what's the point, I'll just quit" and then deciding when I get home that I should have payed attention in class so this would be so much easier.
Could this be possibly be a form of bipolar?
I don't know, I just want to quit it all and stop having to stress but in the long run it won't help me to quit.
Please help

Hello again

I don't know much on the Bi polar side of things so i won't comment on that.

The feeling of giving up is fairly common and you should try to stop feeling oppressed by the magnitude or difficulty of work you have.

Right now you think giving up will be better but in a few months you'll realise that you should've worked harder. I think you understand that so you need to tell yourself what you want in the future and only the work now will help it.

A lot of people struggle with maths so your case isn't new. Try asking your teachers after lessons to go through things slower.

Remember this all the time... asking questions doesn't make you stupid, it means you want to learn more.

Try not to get angry at yourself, instead change those feelings to a feeling of determination

PM me if you feel like talking about anything else

Good luck in school

It's just weird for me to want to give up though because I'm usually a straight A student, and this year (7th grade) I was put from basic math (which would be Course 2 now because I'm not in 6th grade anymore) to Honors Math (8th grade or Course 3) and the lesson load is just so much on me right now.
And I do occasionally ask questions but how the student teacher explains it doesn't really make sense to me, and I'd feel stupid if I asked him to repeat.

Trust me, everyone goes through this phase. It's normal, try not to feel disheartened by it.

With regards to your teacher, try asking a different teacher or ask your friends. I hate bad teachers just as much as the next person, it's just a case of do the best you can with ALL the resources avaliable

You've already answered your question as to what the behaviour is: being pissed and depressed. From what you wrote, none of it even remotely hints at bipolar disorder. There are several reasons I can mention although that is more suited for the Mental Health section.

Regarding your struggles in math class, there are always many solutions you can try. For starters, ask a class-mate after class. Ideally, ask someone who gets high marks in class. If your friend gets low marks, then it's useless asking him/her even if you feel more comfortable doing so. You can also ask the teacher outside of class as well. Since it's basic math, any other science or math teacher could explain it to you. However, you have another resource: the Internet. There are many math lessons on YouTube and other websites, just Google the level of math you're taking and hopefully that can help. Part of the Internet also includes TeenHelp, feel free to ask math questions here as there are people who struggle like you do but there are also others who have university degrees in math and science. I'd be willing to help you out but you have to explain exactly what it is you're learning and don't understand, as well as post some of the math questions on here. I'd be willing to do some of the questions but not all of them, only a few. Lastly, describe the teacher's explanation on here so we don't end up saying the same thing.

Your stress hopefully will decrease once you understand the math you're learning.


I can rip you off, and steal all your cash, suckerpunch you in the face, stand back and laugh. Leave you stranded as fast as a heart-attack.
