    Hey everyone,

    I'm currently studying history and education at Durham university, I'm in my first year and second term. Overall I feel like it can't be worth it, I haven't really clicked with anyone, I dislike my college and (worst of all) I can't handle the pressures of academic life. I never have been able to, A levels broke me down but I had family and friends to help me through it. Whilst I have friends at Durham I don't know them well enough to burden them with this stuff. I fear it's getting serious though, I've been diagnosed with depression. It gets to the point where I can't finish work as a result of reluctance to face any mistakes I've made, it;s ridiculous. I do work hard but can't produce any pieces of work I'm even remotely pleased with I know this is all incredibly trivial but I wonder weather this kind of course is the right path if this is how I am going to react to it. I've seen my tutors and they've been very helpful but the only advice that's possible for them to give simply move my problems further away. Any advice or comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Wow, I have a friend there who's also fed up of the place, I don't know if he's in a similar situation but he isn't motivated to work.

    My friend also HATES it there ditto with you except the deprsesion i think she's trying to stick with it though
