Depression at college... Watch

    Okay, I've decided to make a thread because I felt absolutely depressed today at college. It's getting worse and I struggle to get up in the mornings.

    I'm taking a 2 year BTEC art course. Along with that, I am also trying to pass my maths GCSE, which is very stressful. It's taking me way too long and I'm not sure if I'll pass. I hope I will.

    To be honest, I only took this course because I had no idea what I was going to do. I enjoy drawing, but I only see it as a hobby, not a career or anything. Where I live, these jobs are rare and pretty much non-existent.

    I'm nearly halfway through the first year, and knowing that I have another year and a half left is suffocating. I can't breathe. I cry at night because I don't want to wake up any more. I've never felt like this and I'm really scared.

    I went to therapy last year, which was my first time. They didn't prescribe me anything and thought I was healthy enough. Well, it was okay after I left, but it started to go downhill months later.

    On top of not enjoying college, I also have nobody in my class I can talk to or relate to in anyway. I feel so left out. Someone asked me if I was alright and I nearly started crying. I held my cool and replied "of course".

    My parents know I'm unhappy. My mother insists that I stay there until I pass my maths, then maybe drop out afterwards. An apprenticeship is a possibility, but I just don't know. I'm not interested in anything and I feel so worthless.

    I just don't know.

    I can't directly help you, but I sympathise with you completely, I'm typing this now sat in the library by myself, pretending to do work which I don't actually have. I'm halfway through a 2 year photography course and the only reason I did it was to pass time in the hopes that I figure out what I really want to do before its over.. I wish someone would come up to me and ask if everything is alright.. All I can say is you're not alone
