OK, I have read some interesting responses. Thank you for taking the time to answer me.
(Potential massive derail ahead)
I'd like to follow up on the depression theory. What Bluesqueak said does seem to match what I'm feeling. However, I am pretty hesitant into getting medication because 1) I am afraid of potential side effects; 2) My parents seem convinced that this is all because of the difficulty I have in writing my Master's Thesis (I've already passed the dead line meaning I have to pay another years tuition, I've procrastinated and struggled with writing for months: I haven't spoken to my advisor in quite some time) and I believe they may be right, 3) Again, for long periods of time I don't feel sad, I don't feel hopeless, I just feel apathetic. and 4) I'm afraid that if it doesn't work my parents will be afraid that I "made this up" just to find an excuse for not working (they were quite mad when I tried getting tested for ADHD which led to nothing besides wasted time)
Perhaps I'm just feeling terribly lost: I've lost all interest in my field: every day I wish I had gone into something else, but I can't change now that I'm on the verge of finishing. Unfortunately I fear that the longer than usual amount of time I spent on this (as I mentioned in another thread
) coupled with the fact that this course is so theoretical that I feel as if I am graduation with A Master's without knowing how to DO anything (even this thesis is just plugging a bunch of data in a computer program and getting graphics) makes my future seem bleak.
If you feel like this discussion turned pointless feel free to lock this thread. Again, thank you for your time.
