    Basically its now my 2nd year at college and its been difficult...

    I have had no friends since my first year and it looks like its going to be the same
    this year i feel so alienated and isolated that it has become the only thing i know it
    pains me when i see other people around or groups of people sit on the table next
    to me it just makes me feel pathetic for not having one single persn to talk to.
    I hardly ever eat or go out when in college because i feel that my weight is the
    reason why i feel so negative about myself and if i get thinner people will like me
    sometimes i do eat there but I eat in the toilet cubicles so people dont stare
    i found the colleges counciling service deatails but im too afraid to call because
    i feel like im not worth it.

    one time last year some people asked me if i would sit with them because one of the girls in the group had a crush on me but i declined because i felt like i didnt
    deserve it.

    It was durind the end of my first year where i ended up cuttng my wrist due to how bad i felt but i have not done it since i just wish i knew how the people there think of me because some of them keep looking at me.

    I just want to get through this is there any help anyone can sugest?

    Just wanted to say thanks for joining The Student Room: welcome on board!

    How's it going so far? Found what you need? Below I've listed a few things you might fancy trying on TSR. If you've got any questions, add them to the TSR news, help and feedback forum.

    Put your work head on:
    No matter what level or subject you're studying, you'll find someone on TSR who can help. Find your subject in the Study Help forum and ask a question or visit our brilliant revision section for help and advice. And if you're planning on going to university, you have to visit our uni applications forum. It's full of people who can help you through the whole process.

    Take it easy:
    You know there's more to TSR than studying, right? In Hobbies and Interests you'll find people talking about everything from the latest football scores through to what mobile phone to buy next. Or how about the Debate and Current Affairs forum? Latest news, politics, education...it's all fair game in here.

    That's just a taster, of course. To find even more conversation, head to the Forums page and find a place to start up your own discussion.

    Enjoy the site!

    Ollie, from the TSR community team
