I'm Finished. The Uni is finished too. Social crisis. watch

    I wish I could bury myself in work and studying. However I can't focus, I can't even focus while Im watching a movie because all that goes on in my head are the horrible things that I've been through for the past 1.5 years, which is why I've suffered through severe depression and has severely affected my studies. So my question is how were you able to focus? Because I'd really like to stop thinking about everything and bury myself in my studies too.

    Btw I just clicked on your profile and it says you're a English teacher - I too want to eventually become a teacher! I currently tutor IGCSE economics and accounting but would really like to become a qualified teacher one day!
    It's hard. Honestly, I only got my focus back after I was put on antidepressants. Before that, I found I could focus for a few hours or even days, but after that I kind of lost it. That's why I dropped out of college so many times.

    If this is really affecting your studies and work, don't rule out counselling as an option. I know it seems like weakness if you can't deal with it on your own, or maybe you don't believe it will work, I thought all these things too. But it really put my life back on track. It's how I am where I am now.

    Anyway, you shouldn't bury yourself in work to escape, you should do it because you want to do it, and to help you succeed. I guess that's why I could never truly focus for a long period of time before. You need to prepare yourself emotionally, and be really ready to change.

    OP, have you knocked the door of the new flatmate, 1) to introduce yourself, and 2) to check on the wellbeing of another student that may be feeling as isolated as you?
    I wish i would but it has gotten increasingly worse with me being an outsider in halls.

    I've realised the new flatmate doesn't even put food in her cupboard :confused: so it does look like a strange case.
