So I've been feeling low lately for the past 3 years. I dont think i have depression or anything but sometimes i get in a bit of a funk and cant get of out it no matter what.
I try to keep busy but when i get some thoughts in my head it sticks. I just feel really lonely and isolated. I'm at university and a have a small group of friends who are amazing and a few friendly associates and i go out and stuff. At home i have a few friends but not very close and I hardly seem them and im worried that im gonna end up alone, which adds to my problems and makes me worry.
I try to be social but I'm shy, i push myself but i feel like a complete idiot, and they are just being nice to me because they feel sorry for the awkward girl. I am starting my second year university and with new modules and new people im worried as hell, i dont want to be a loner like i was in high school.
I have anxiety it but i try not to let it stop me and really push myself,
But lately everything is getting on top of me. Im generally a happy friendly person but more and more im having to push it out and i find myself smiling when i dont want to be. Im a very resistant person and get on with things but i just dont know what to do.
I know this is not a biggest problem that people have posted on here but I'm worried and would like some advice on what to do. I dont think i need meds or anything but some coping strategies would be good

Your uni probably offers free counselling that you can go to.

Cbt might help with the developing coping strategies/different ways of seeing things

I agree with little popcorns, checking out CBT might be a good idea to help with these feelings. There's an online CBT course called MoodGym that you might be interested in - way shorter wait than on the NHS.
