.

How to Clear Prelims 2017 in 2 months? Please read the Details.

I gave last attempt but I couldn't clear. For past one and half year i am suffering from depression. I just like every one else thought depression was normal mood thing and would pass in due time, but it didn't. Everyday i woke up feeling suicidal and not wanting to get up pushed me into depths, now after i went through medications i feel better. But, now this feeling of guilt and less amount of time is pressurizing me. I would like to ask those who have cleared in such less amount of time, how did they do it and can i do it too? Please be honest with me, i seek your guidance as a younger brother.

  • @hungry4more Stay strong bhai, I say this as a fellow sufferer. I am glad you are on medication. If there are days, you feel fatigued and listless even after getting up, make sure you take vit D supplements as well as L-theanine along with your morning chai/coffee. D-Rise 6k is like 4 tabs, 1 for each week, Rs 190 odd. L-theanine is pretty inexpensive as well.

    You can do it!

    @CitizenMonk guide him buddy....
    I'm back to square one. Sorry to disappoint you. How can I show others the path when I don't have the light within me! While I type this, I'm walking out of a premises that I wonder how I ended up here, from that happy go lucky kid I used to be, playing hide & seek in my hometown. May nobody has to go through what I am right now. Was too ashamed to vent further, so asked root to close my thread. But I was tagged here, so here I am.

    What helps me is sticking to a routine. Doesn't matter what. Muscle memory is very easy to trick your body into. But try to stick to a fixed routine. If you gotta poop at 6:50, you be there on the toilet whether you like it or not.

    Have you considered going back and living with her? You can prepare from a distance as well, most of the test series are online...

  • I find music very relaxing. Especially try listening to Sigur Ros. You'll feel calm and energetic at the same time which definitely is going to help you to go into berserk mode for prelims.

    hey dude ... even i am passing through same. Can understand you. Live in the moment and do what is necessary. Don't think much about the result or future. Easy way to be in relax mode. even though i am advising you all this i myself go into depression and get anxious momentarily 2 -3 times a day. pm me whenever you feel depressed or anxious. will be of great help to me as well.

  • @"बागड़ बिल्ला" this is what i needed, I know i can't go down easily. Life do throws you at bottom sometimes, it doesn't mean we can't rise to the ground back.
    @CitizenMonk definitely, Let's meet, for a walk in evenings in ORN. I have devised strategy, including MCQs extensively, last year i was overconfident & didn't solve much of the papers.
    @Tudor I will try to hold myself together now.
    @saitama Yes, i've found my solace in bhagvat gita. It helps.
    @sylvian_10 i can relate to the blog, totally.
    ·
  • @manjeet6561 yes, we can go for 15-20mins walk in evenings to discuss and plan ahead.
    Above all,
    @all I am so grateful to each one of you, now i know why everyone says @forum is like a family. I never thought i will get such a response. It does feel like, a new beginning.

  • I was in a similar situation, but started prep slightly early (last month), so I am done with the static portion, except Indian History, which I always leave out. I am still in a fix regarding the preparation of Current Affairs. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
