I am in need of Serious Help.

Postby Katie4 » Sun Jan 28, 2018 4:47 pm

Hi,
My name is Katie. i have been struggling with this problem for long. I don't know what to do, I simply feel paralyzed.
My problem is "I can't work"

Actually, I am a content writer/blogger/freelancer. I am good at my job. I get projects easily as my clients really like my work. I am also working on my own blogs and websites because I know I can earn more by this. Sounds good so far but the problem is, when i get a project, I can't work on it. If a client gives me 5 articles to write and 5 days to work on it. I will delay the work first or my mind wanders and when the deadline comes nearer I just give up.

I sit on my chair at 7 am in the morning and till 6 pm in the evening I sit on my chair. This is a lot of time to accomplish any big task but I simply can't work. I can't get my mind to think, my mind refuses to do any effort. I watch videos, and do random stuff other than "work" I feel paralyzed. I can't explain as anyone who will read this will think come on this is lame, Just get yourself working, but for me it is getting very very hard day by day.

Another thing I want to mention is that I need money for survival and the only way of survival is this freelance work. I know I can earn a good amount of money, but I can't work.

Let me explain it further, if I have to write an article for a website, i will open all the resources and when I start to think my mind gets blank. This doesn't happen when I write sample article for my clients. This happens in actual projects that can earn me a lot of money. I don't know I am able to explain my situation or not.

I went to a psychiatrist and she prescribed a Depression medicine. I started using it and after 2 days i had severe headache continuously so I stopped the medicine.

I also think about doing job in a company but I am afraid that I will not be productive there.

I have 2 projects with deadlines approaching but I am not able to work on any of them. I sit all day staring on the screen.

I started taking Modafinil 100mg once daily. I felt some change and clarity in my thoughts but it also didn't work for me. I know the medicine is not a magic that will get me to work, I have to do the real effort.

Anyone who is getting my problem please please help me.. I am feeling myself useless.

Hi Katie,

Good day, I have been diagnosed with ADHD for 4 years, I really feel what you are struggling right now, it is not easy. For now I've been reading blogs from websites to get insights to control my symptoms and at the same time I've have schedules with my doctor.

Thanks for your reply.
I am not sure if it is actually ADHD but whatever it is... it is paralyzing me. I went to a psychiatrist and she prescribed depression medicine.
