Who are you calling random?!

Today, I failed a calculus exam because I simply was too burnt out to study for it. I have not wanted to even look at a math problem since the beginning of the year, and I procrastinate all day instead of doing work, and it leads me here, typing at 2 a.m. to random strangers while having to get up tomorrow at 7.

Have you had yourself assessed for ADHD? I didn't realize I had it myself until a bunch of things I read online clicked, and looking back, my whole life made a lot more sense. The procrastination-cramming cycle was one that I definitely fell hard into, and it left me far more burnt out on a regular basis - Because even though I wasn't doing my work, I would still stress about it all the time. Also - If you're a night owl, it might be another piece of potential evidence in favour of that - It's highly comorbid. But, basically, my point is, if you do have ADHD, it's far better to get it managed and help deal with frustrating impulses and behaviours that you might not otherwise be able to handle as easily.

How do you get burnt out from procrastinating?

So, if you do get burnt out from procrastination, so you start doing your work in a timely manner? How ironic!

Do you have access to psychiatric help? This sounds like either something on the ADHD/Autism spectrum or severe clinical depression.

Or they chose the wrong major. Lots of students choose majors that require high-level math either to impress their parents or are forced to by their parents. Switch to a field that doesn't require math and accept that you're highly likely to be in a low-paying career (not that there aren't exceptions, but the probability is low, and you most likely don't understand probability anyways.)

You think you're burnt out, how do you think we teachers feel? We're tired of your procrastination.
