Thanks for the query.

You are provided me with good information.

It is good to know to that you are interested to be a doctor.But to be a doctor you will have to finish school first.

1.Are you facing any problem in school like ragging which makes you not like school?
2.Are you having any other problems at home that makes you lose concentration?

You should never hurt yourself because you are disinterested in school.Instead try counselling from a Psychiatrist who will try to help you out from your fear or disinterest in school.

They are many modalities of treatment like Cognitive Behavioral therapy .
CBT can help you to change how you think ('Cognitive') and what you do ('Behaviour'). These changes can help you to feel better.

During the course of treatment, you will learn how to identify and change destructive or disturbing thought patterns that have a negative influence on behavior.

Whatever the type of treatment you undergo it is finally up to you to make up your mind and do the best so that you have a bright future.

Hope i have answered your query.I will be available for follow up queries.

Wishing you good health.
