    When I went to uni I expected it would take a bit of time to settle in and to help me I got involved and made a good group of friends. I am doing the course of my dreams at the closest university to my house that does it (1 hour away). But after about 8 weeks of enjoying my course, accommodation and spending time with my friends. I still was really struggling with being away from home so I went to see the university councillor who recommended I tried not going home as frequently. I lasted about 3 weeks but then my mum had to pick me up at the end of term because I became very stressed and ill. Over Christmas I was like a different person and I was really happy and I had talked myself into how going back to university wouldn’t be that bad and was a bit excited to get back to my friends. But the second I walked into my bedroom at halls I instantly began to panic and wanted to be sick. Since then I have hardly eaten and really struggled to revise for my exams. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on how to help me feel less overwhelmed and anxious.
    Thanks

    Hi,

    Have you seen your councillor again? That might be a good first step; update them with what you have said above. You should definitely reach out for help from your Uni if you are struggling.

    Take things one day (or one hour) at a time.

    Hope that helps even a little.
