MD- poor performance in school?


MD- poor performance in school?

All my life I have found school particularly challenging, just because it's so difficult to focus, and after a while I just kept getting discouraged.  However I'm still to pursuing  my education. 

I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this?

Does anyone else feel like they developed/started daydreaming more when school got more stressful for them? Almost as a way to cope with their emotions? For me personally, I had always been…Continue

That's great that you're in medical school. I'm actually planning to go to pharmacy school and that's what is helping to control my daydreams , so I wont getting anymore low grades..

I was the top student through all years,starting from elementary school till high school,I started to daydream excessively in my final year in high school and hence I got 91.3%, a grade that kicked me away from the university that I've always wanted to join.I am majoring in medicine like I've always wanted but not in the university that I want.The worst part is that I don't get high grades in medical school,I pass all the exams and my colleagues thinks I am the top because they observe me answering in lectures,discussion sessions and practicals but deep down I know that I am not that good and what proves that is my grades in exams.I've tried to control my daydreams to promote my GPA,but when I start to study I lose the motivation to do so and drown in daydreams.

My grades have suffered tremendously because of my MDD addiction. Since high school, my grades have suffered. I graduated from high school in the 11th grade with a 2.63 because of daydreaming. Now in college I have a 2.41 even though I did well this semester. This semester, I just got off of financial aid probation because I got behind in school because of withdrawing and repeating classes do to my MD problem. Each semester, I trying harder and harder to control it and make better grades because I'am way too smart to have my grades look like I'm a bad student. School is fairly easy for me, I just procrastinate and wait until the last minute because of my MD problem so a lot of my grades have suffered. My horrible gpa is what motivates me to control my daydream a lot more now.

Was a straight A students all throughout my middle school years till high school. But when I started my 11th and 12th grade year I began to Daydream excessively  and my straight A's turned into D's and Fails.

Of course I had always had trouble with school even if I was getting good grades as I always took a lot longer than others to do assignments as I always procrastinated because i rather daydream. I spent countless nights sleep deprived and stressed because I had to finish an assignment I did no because I was daydreaming all evening. 

It sucks when I go to school and some kids just say "oh your so smart! your just lucky." They have no idea how hard I work, its not that im smart I just try harder. I wish I could tell them about my daydreaming but they would never understand. I guess in a way all us Daydreamers are very hard working because we have to live  with this (gift or disorder) yet we still try our best to move on. We work harder than any other person in our job, class, or whatever.

Only if others would consider that when they look at us and just nod a no like if we are lazy or over exaggerating.  We trying aren't we, people are too quick to judge. Daydreaming has totally impacted my education, I cannot listen to a lecture for more than 5 minutes without zoning out. Sucks butt =(
