I just let my problems stay as is and I don't do anything about them... too anxious to do what's needed, too depressed to want to do anything at all

My anxiety holds me back from doing things to improve my life. My depression makes me unmotivated to deal with my problems. I struggle to force myself see a GP and that's because of my social anxiety. Like I've mentioned in other posts I am failing my 1st year of university and I don't even see any urgency in this, and I guess it's owing to my depression but I haven't put any effort into the course at all for several months now and I've made no efforts to contact the university about this situation. I don't even know why, I just don't do it. In fact I've already failed 1st year of university at this point. I'm such a failure honestly.

When anxiety and depression combine they make everyday life tasks so difficult. Everything from forcing myself to take a shower in the morning to making myself go for a walk after about 5 months since the last one, despite the fact that I get extremely anxious about this. I prefer to not expose myself to the anxiety symptoms as much as possible and that's why I avoid so many triggering situations. Maybe that's why I failed so bad at university. Since I didn't socialise with anyone, I didn't feel motivated to progress in the course. I was too anxious to even attend any tutorial sessions, where face to face discussion in small groups takes place (which absolutely horrifies me and gives me horrible physical symptoms of anxiety), and this meant that I had already lost out on 20% of my total mark from the start of the course.

I'm just so unmotivated right now. Not seeing a point in life anymore. Not wanting to do anything. Not being able to do anything. Every day since I left school over a year ago has just been me sitting down at my computer all day, and every week I think about how I could improve my life, but never make any progress. Again, since I'm too anxious to do what's needed, and too depressed to even care at all.

Same here, although wasn't so much anxiety as it was being so into video game routine that made me never really socialize and get involved at Uni.

It's hard man but personally I want to try to find a metric fuckload of support either through therapy, or astronomy / hobby clubs or something to meet a small group of peers in person, not some socially distanced BS, perhaps a small wtv number of people group could be good for you too, however few to make you not anxious

Hi I'm like this you remind me of myself. I need to see doctors for various reasons but too anxious to go. I don't know what the answer is, I know what your dealing with.☀
