I am currently studying abroad. I have been abroad since October and I have another 2 full months until I return to the UK.
I have been reasonably happy for most of the year, until about March. Now I am becoming desperate to go home. I just feel listless and unhappy. It's all very familiar, as I have had episodes of anxiety and depression in the past, so I recognise that this is not healthy.
I have lots of friends here, but I think the problem is that the location of where I live is very isolated, and it's far to walk even to the nearest shops, and there is very little to do. Now the weather is becoming hotter, the heat seems to be affecting me and draining my energy, making it even more difficult to go out during the day.
It's coming to the point where sometimes I don't leave my room for days, because apart from my classes at uni I have no reason to. I do generally socialise at weekends, but it's not enough to keep me ticking over. I am feeling lonely and bored, and I feel like I have exhausted my time here. I have no enthusiasm for my course either.
Does anyone have any advice on how to keep my spirits up for the rest of my time here? I don't have the option of going home earlier. Thanks
