IDK..I have been feeling this since a long time. How do I fix this feeling?
Perhaps you have forgotten your reasons for starting down this road in the first place.

I recall being unmotivated in my 2ndary and post-2ndary years. That's because my immediate desire was to live my life for the day, and never mind the future. The future was an adulting thing, and I wasn't ready to give up my carefree teens.

I have a whole chapter in my ersatz auto-biography entitled "The Lost Years".

I wish I could go back and ask my 20-something self: "Where do you want to be in your 30's? Do you still want to have an unfinished education and no idea where your life is going? Because your 30's will come, whether you act or not."

Hmmmm. Can't motivate to study, can't motivate to get up in the morning, sounds like other issues in your life to me.
hmm I am also suffering from IDK I am taking 2 tablets-:
1) Risperidone sizodon
2) Sertraline Zosert

I guess I am taking medications for depression and asperger's syndrome.

I think as others have suggested…….you need to see a therapist/psychiatrist if possible. You sound depressed to be honest.

Anyway "Introduction to Statistical Learning" is seen as a good intro text to Machine Learning/Big Data and it's available for free by the publisher online. This one will get you started but leave you mathematically wanting more.

As is elements of statistical learning (A little bit more hardcore than the one above but its followup)

How did you succeed in any previous courses that used text as the primary teaching method? Anyway, you're not limited to the resource(s) provided by your instructor. You mentioned "big data" in your first post. A quick YouTube search yields countless videos. Maybe try some of those to start?
I succeed in them because they were numericals. It was easy for me to learn mathematics. It is hard for me to learn from pure text like computer science.
Perhaps he is exaggerating, but it is not at all uncommon for CS students to lack programming skill. After all, the focus of the degree is to prepare the student for academic research, not industry.

Is the problem, a reading or perhaps learning disability e.g., dyslexia? This has nothing to do with intelligence.
Perhaps finding a psychologist specializing in reading/learning problems would be more beneficial.
I have asperger's syndrome imo. In Nepal doctors don't tell you what medications you are getting for...I know the meds but i don't know what has happened to me...And we don't find it good to ask about that. I am sure I have ADHD, dyslexia or apserger's syndrome one of them.

You must ask your doctor about that. Explain your situation. These are serious issues that require professional help.

Well, I think we've offered all of the helpful advice that we can, and it's still worth talking more with your doctor about this. If the meds are not working well for you, they should be able to try others. There are a number of therapies to help you with your depression and other issues.
