I find doing yoga, meditation/mindfulness or tai chi, even for 10 minutes can help you deal with stress and mental exhaustion much quicker. It should also help you to manage long term stress if you do 10 mins every day. Try this book called Get some Headspace by andy puddicombe:
Hopefully this will help you to find the time and energy to socialise

its sometimes good to be antisocial- you shouldnt do things because others do them, but because you want to do them. study crack on and reap the rewards!

I found that even in university, I struggled to balance work and play. It really helps to pick and choose where your hours go to during the week so you have a rough idea. It eases a lot of pressure to get into a routine as well.
It's really hard at the start and there will be all sorts of different things being thrown at you from all directions. So I understand it is hard, I myself have been out of education for 3 years and went back this year only to drop out (health issues and such).
As said above, maybe try practicing meditation. I know things like sun salutations first thing in the morning are refreshing and relaxation poses at night to help you sleep are a tremendous help.
Maybe it's your body telling you something? Maybe you just need to take some time to yourself, or maybe you just need to allocate your time more wisely when doing things. I know I've had to recently as the stress of trying to be social has been incredibly draining. Just let people be aware of how you are feeling, those that matter will understand
Try getting yourself on track and being okay yourself before you start to focus your time on others.
