    My story..

    My first year at university I studied a Bsc Psychology and it went great, I passed with 2.2 grade and made friends, my second year I decided to move out and I didn't make new friends like I expected to do, I ended up isolating myself and trying to focus on studying which failed, when it came to the second year exams It got too much for me and I ended up having breakdowns and having anxiety.

    Now it's a month later and I'm still isolated, I got treatment for the anxiety by taking medication (a beta blocker).

    My worry is that I won't change to prepare to go back, or whether thats the right decision entirely, and even if I do go back I will get 2.2 degree (going off my average) and it won't be valued as much. I'm still isolating myself and it's getting to me not doing anything right now, but I can't make choices because I don't know what to do, I always think about the future and overthink my decisions. Furthermore, I met my girlfriend at university and we've been together for a year so all my decisions will affect us. Any advice will help
