I take hours to work, and I can't even hang out because I forget to plan it out. Its terrible. I recommend medicine. It helps. But you just have to try what works for you. Ive heard counciling works for severe cases. Not for me...
This is exactly how I was. EXACTLY. My grades hit the ditch which caused me stress. The original reason I didn't want to take them was exactly that - I did not want the zombieness. And indeed, I did have to put at least 10x more effort to even match other students.
