    Hi everyone,

    I've just graduated from high school and will be starting Medicine this September which I cannot wait for! The thing is I don't have any close friends. My group of "friends" in high school are all very happy staying in their own homes all the time and never want to socialise. They're pretty crappy friends they don't really care about me tbh. Plus they are all going to different unis .

    I don't think I'm a bad friend: I always want to chat, hang out etc. I just feel that we are different types of people that don't really mix. But i never really mixed well with most people in my high school year group.

    The thing is I'm concerned this is going to be the same in medicine and I'll be a total loner - especially at fresher week . I'm moving into the halls come September time in order to have a fresh start. But right now I just feel fed up and alone.

    Sorry for this ramble.

    Don't feel bad there's so many people around the world who feel the way you do right now and I promise it sounds proper cheesy but you will find that one friend who you trust with your life might not have been with the cluster of mates you had who seem quite crap but it will be soon, remember when starting medicine at your new uni there will be people just like you who are also feeling a little frightened as it is their first day too.

    The chance is that once you start uni, you will start losing touch with your current friends because of a lack of common interest. However you will make new ones with the same interests as you and if you are interested in hanging out then staying in halls will be a perfect opportunity to make new acquaintances.
