Well, i am about to finish my University and this problem makes me keep thinking. I just have a thesis to write and submit and i am done. I am 24 yrs old guy and stay away from my family. Day by day as my submission date comes close, i am losing motivation to work on it. Sometimes i just try to avoid working or sometimes want to get it finished recklessly. I don't know what could be the problem but i have recognized a similar pattern of behaviour during my school and college. I went in to depression when i was about to finish my degree and needed so much emotional support to get me through.
This thing continues. Everytime i am near the end of something like my education, job etc. i get this paralysing feeling of anxiety, nervousness, loss of motivation etc. Strangely though, when i was in my high school... i was staying with my family and though my parents were anxious about high school exams, i was quite normal and cool and handled it elegantly. But its when i am away from my family, it gets worst. Is this a fear of unknown or something else? If it is, is there a way to overcome it?
This is a very common problem. All the time I have patients in therapy, who has done very well at the university but cannot get the last thing done.
Try St John's Wort from the health store. Take two pills a day. The effect comes after three weeks. Find a psychotherapist or a friend to help you with your studies. Make up plans with that other person and tell him or her every day about your advances. Decide how many hours you need to work every day to manage. Do something nice when you have finished your studies for that day.
