You asked a broad question that required more information.
Rather than replying with the needed information you have just given me negative feedback. That was a small clue that you may be suffering from depression, but it is not enough to allow me to help you and give you a proper answer.
Please tell me more about some of your behavior other than saying you have a problem concentrating. The more that you tell me, the better I can help you.
I shall be waiting to hear from you.
