I've been depressed for quite a lot of time now. I'm 20 and I've been on prescribed antidepressants since I was 16. I've had issues with self-harm and suicidal thoughts but I'm still here. I've always been a nerd and I never was underprepared for a test. However, this depressive episode has been the longest in a while due to which I couldn't concentrate on my studies and I haven't studied at all. I've never been in this scenario and now all I can do is panic. I can't bear the thought of failing because this is the only thing I was at least average in. I can't focus, I can't concentrate and it's taking a toll on me. Please can someone tell me how they manage to academically do well while being depressed? Since English is my second language, I apologize if this was hard to read.
