I lost the ability to study

Title says it, i cant study even though i hate myself for it. So it all started in this semester the last year of high school. We have two big exams on the end of the year. Just like everyone else i had high hopes for myself and it was going good i was studying like normal and my test were coming out great. Until the second part of the semester hit Out of nowhere i couldn't concentrate, it was like something was missing. I didn't know what it was but i could feel it. I tried studying again, i said to myself today i will change, today i will break this chain but it didnt work on the long run. I just studied like 2 hours then i just left it. for month this cycle continued, i would say to myself i will study and in the end i wouldn't or i would just study way less than i planned. Eventually people begin to pass me on the tests. i was on the end of the lists, when i was in the top 50 months ago. This hit like a truck. like i know it is natural if i dont study i would drop back, but it hurt knowing i had the potential to be better and here i was slacking off on internet etc. on top off that my family pushed me too >"why are you not studying?" >"do you think if you leave it to the next year it would be better?" no i know it wouln't be, i don't know why am i like this. they started to get more aggressive with me as the exams got closer. And then one day after the usual debate with my parents i felt so angry at them that I GOT IT BACK, the missing piece, i felt like i could study again. it felt so good i can finally study like usual but as my anger calmed down it left me. i tried to replicate the feeling but it never came back. And now im here, there is like 2 weeks left for the exam. I've been depressed for the last 3 months. My mind is too complicated right now i feel like there is 5 differents personas of me, each of them screaming at my ear >"Why are you not studying?" >"Just leave it be, it's not like it was your fault" >"It's all because of this stupid exam" >"Maybe if i study on this 2 weeks i could manage it" in the end im tired, depressed, sleepless, concerned about the future and i just don't know what to do.

hey guys,, does studying in a library works? help me decide whether to study at home or library?

well,, recently i have bought myself a sit stand desk to boost my productivity and i really like to have my personal workspace,, but am still lacking in the productivity part,, as i study alone around the 4 walls of my room,, so its a bit of friction to start my day with productive hours,, i tried going to library and study but the thing is i watch online vdo lectures or do some classes or anything online most of the time so i have to put speakers,, but in library you have to put on headphones and work,, so as long lectures could put a stress on my years i discontinued going to the library,, i find it comfortable to watch lectures at home,, what you guys do to maintain your productivity throughout the day? go to library,,work at home or do both? any tips?? edit: now i am thinking to join a library in the first half of the day where i complete the assignments and all,, and then come back home in the second half to complete whatever online video lectures are required for my studying,, will this be a good idea?

Has anyone focussed for 3 hours in one go in a deep work session? if yes, then suggest how you do it?

guys i need to study around 12 hours daily so i think studying in 3 hour blocks would be helpful for me as i could complete my targets and goals in a more efficient way,, but the thing is sometimes i get exhausted by thinking i have to work so much and then i just tend to procrastinate,, how do i fix it? how do i not procrastinate and achieve the flow state?? BASICALLY JUST TELL ME HOW TO GET THINGS DONE EFFIECIENTLY,, I CAN STUDY LIKE 4-5 HRS PER DAY IN AVERAGE AND THATS NOT ENOUGH FOR WHAT AM STUDYING,, HOW DO I KEEP THE MOMENTUM GOING?
