I thought I would try and be productive today and turn a lazy Sunday into writing an assignment that I have been putting off for about a month now! But since having depression, I have found it so difficult to concentrate for more than 30 minutes! Even on things that I enjoy: movies, television, reading!
They are not too much of an issue of course!
But what is an issue is that it is now affecting my job and training!
I am a trainee veterinary nurse and I work 40 hours a week in a veterinary practice but also have to do exams, assignments and a progress log! I knew it was hard work when I signed up for it but when I have zero concentration, it seems pretty impossible!
Throughout school and college, I have always considered myself very intelligent and have always got good results! But my depression hit me really hard at university back in 2012 and it has been with me ever since.
I just keep comparing myself to how I used to be and wishing I could get back to that!
Does anyone have any tips to help with concentration?
I am of course putting off other things today too, like getting up and showered, doing my food shop and cleaning my flat! But they can wait!!
Also, I apologise now because I think most of my blogs are going to be about struggling with something!
