Need some advice on what to do with my AP Physics course...

Hello, everyone! Thanks for coming to offer me some counsel. I currently have a %61 in my AP Physics 1 course. I am a high school junior and a very intelligent person, but an awful student. I have been depressed and have been seeing a Psychologist for about 2 months now. I am afraid I am going to fail the class. I am also taking Precalculus, AP US History, and Dual Enrollment College Art History, and am doing fine in those. I have extreme procrastination issues and I feel like I have been left behind in the class because the assignments are so long and I have the class 1st Period so I just answer key them right before class and don't learn anything or in many instances, just don't do them. I know how awful an F can look on a transcript and I by no means am trying to get into an ivy league. However, I have a target GPA and ACT score I am trying to meet; being a 30 on the ACT and 3.75 high school GPA to get a full ride to the college I plan to go to (Colorado Mesa). I currently have a 3.82 and a 28 on the ACT. I live in an egregiously small town and we barely have anything in terms of AP classes we have no honors program. We don't have weighted GPA's, so all of my classes are unweighted. I currently see 4 outcomes; best case scenario I pass with a C and take another Semester; I fail this semester and drop the course next semester; I get a C and drop next semester anyway; or I fail this Semester and show some perseverance on my transcripts and get a C/B next semester. I would be a fool to blame my situation on outside forces and it is strictly my fault, but I am looking for some advice from people who have been or know someone who has been in a similar situation.
