Depression and studies

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.

I used to stutter study. Since i was like you my focus only lasted a few minutes so i studdied one important thing, then did something fun, 30 later id be refreshed enough to study another single thing. If you do this over time it can work out even when you feel like you cant focus at all.

I will try that out. Thank you for your suggestion!

Hello, @Tiredtotry I understand the circumstances from which you are dealing right now and I genuinely concern about your state. You are a newbie here and I know you expect something good from this forum, always remember, the state you are dealing with is not permanent, These are just bad days from which I also suffered in my past. Here I would suggest you to take a look at this worthy article so that it could help you to move on from this state.

I hope it will help you.
Regards Brack.
I look forward to reading this article, thank you so much for your concern Brack, it means a lot to me :)
