    I'll try to make this as short as possible
    I am currently doing a degree in maths in a university I don't like , I want to change uni and course but I feel so stressed about it , I used to be really sure about changing it but now I just have this huge doubts like what if maths were my way and I am messing it up just because I don't like the uni , or it could be due to my OCD which gets me obsessed to everything. I feel so clueless right now. I really need to hear from similar experiences because I know I am uninterested in this degree but at the same time I can't stop obsessing that my dislike may be just some form of laziness , unflexibility

    I haven't personally had to go through anything like this but my brother has and we're very close, so I could almost feel what he was feeling. He just started Uni and he wasn't really sure of the location or course he was going for. After a week or so, he wanted to quit. He really wanted to just give up and try somewhere else doing something else. But, he kept at it and now he is really happy doing the course. He's found things to motivate himself, he's made friends that encourage him to keep going and he's been making the course enjoyable for himself. I think you need to sit down and have a serious think about what you want to do with your life and where you want to go. I know it sounds cliche, but you just need to find a way to enjoy it. If you still think you don't want to do the course, look for something else. Keep your options open. Don't feel like you have to stay there just because you are there. There are always other places to go and courses to take. My advice is to find what you want to do and do it. Find where you want to go and go. I hope it all works out.
