The Joker Posted August 3, 2008 Share Posted August 3, 2008 (Please do move this topic to the accurate section if this topic does not belong here. I am very sorry.) Hello.. Just to quickly introduce myself, I am obviously a new member. I am a 15 year-old female who will be starting her first year of high-school on August 19th. Seemingly, I am probably one of the youngest members here, seeing how many members are in their 20's and 30's.. Ahahah. As I said, I am about to enter high-school, and am a little nervous about it. Despite the fact I am one of the more intelligent students among my peers, I just barely made it out of 8th grade. I received a few F's and one or two D's on my entire report card. The reason for my low grades is that I have a very hard time getting my homework done. I just do not feel motivated at all to do any of my work. I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism at age 8, and have been diagnosed with depression about a year ago, so I think those might be the underlying causes of my not doing my work (my under-active thyroid leaves me with little energy as it is, and the depression just makes it even worse by taking away my motivation and will to do anything). I am on summer break right now and thereforee am not as depressed; but while in school, I get depressed very easily and I become very fatigued. I come home with weary eyes, a headache, am in a very grouchy mood regardless how good my day might have been, and all I want to do is relax. Once I come home and do the things I enjoy doing, I can't seem to want to start on my work. Do you guys have any advice as to what I could do? I really need to start doing my work, because I am going to get a lot of it in high-school. How can I get myself motivated to start on my work? And do you really think it is a good idea if I worked away from the computer? The computer seems to be a very big distraction for me. . . Just so you know, it'd be idealistic if I could come home to relax first and then do my work. I look forward to doing the things I like to when I return home, as they help me relax and get my headaches under control.. Thank you so much in advance. I'd really appreciate the help.
