I've been dealing with depression and anxiety for about 2 years. I talk wellbutrin and zoloft, and see a counselor when I want to and a psychiatrist every couple months for an update.
I'm in an accelerated masters program for Mechanical Engineering. I was supposed defend in March, but it was postponed to May, now it's postponed until the end of summer. I basically had to drop what I was working on for 1.5 years and go a different direction. I've always hated the field I'm in, not ME, but the specific area. With not liking the field, having to stay here for many more months, and dropping what I was working on I feel like I can't do it anymore. I haven't had a break to deal with this depression/anxiety. Sure I take pills and do a few things for it but haven't been able to face it head on. I feel like I won't produce quality work until I feel better. Everyone wants me to stay though, "I've already done so much" "I'm also there", but it's so hard to work. I have no motivation, I'm always tired, and I feel like my brain doesn't work. I don't know what to do. Dropping out sucks... But so does staying. Staying may be good in the long run, but what about my well being?
