I am severely unmotivated and just can't bring myself to go classes. I don't know if it's depression, but I can't bring myself to do anything productive. Every time I try, I fail and end up hating myself anymore. I have no emotional support and so many things to worry about. I've talked to Health Services and they weren't must help. I just don't know what to do.


  1. Hi there - I'm not sure if this would be much help, but if you'd like to anonymously talk to someone, feel free to send me an e-mail at I'm no therapist, but I've been through really hard and lonely times, especially in my second year, I nearly failed, but I'm in a better place now. I would be more than happy to be someone you could message anonymously if you need some support. School, and life in general, can be very difficult and stressful. Please just know that someone is willing to listen to you if you would like.

  2. Hey, you need to talk to someone, preferably a professional.

    Waterloo has counselling services:, or 519-888-4567 ext. 33121

    You can also call anytime for HERE247 for help as well: 1884373247, or They help with addictions, mental health, & crisis services.

  3. dude... you are paying money for these classes
    Just go for the sake of going
    It's like buying food and throwing it out right away

  4. For $25 a week I will forcibly drag you to all of your classes

  5. I feel the same way. Depression is like a rain cloud above my head and all I'm doing is waiting for the sun.

  6. It's okay to feel like absolute shit and hate going to class. I was in the exact same position last semester where I could not drag myself out of my room, no matter if it was a lecture or an exam.

    What worked for me was talking to the folks at Counselling Services, and especially taking down my course load and switching majors. It may be that for you, it may just mean you need a break from school, and that's completely normal! Fuck the haters and good luck, you'll get to where you wanna be soon :)

  7. It was never about motivation, it's about discipline. Don't ask why just do it. Give yourself deadlines and promise yourself you will meet them.For now emotions should be separated from work, the motivation and passion will come in later years but for now you just have to practice and develop discipline.

  8. Hey I've been there too,

    I was completely unmotivated. I was missing most of my classes and just felt worthless and depressed. I would just lay in bed as much as I could not wanting to even talk to people.

    To tell you the truth, the one thing that made me feel better was getting back to being productive. I forced myself to start going back to lectures and to start working more. After a while I started to feel a bit more accomplished, and more happy.

    I don't know if I was in the same boat as you, but it worked for me.

  9. don't get dragged too far down- I mean sure, school is kind of silly and often useless but it's something we have to do in order to get a job.

    try considering switching into a program you're passionate about. there should be some form of employment out there that fulfills you. if not, I don't blame you.

    it's not your fault that the things you once loved don't please you as much any more.
