    I felt this way for years but it got stronger since I came to uni. I feel the irrational fear that people do not like me for who I am, not finding good guy for myself and being unemployed for the rest of my life. Also I think I might have depression coz I have random fits of crying or feeling down even if I don't have reason to and even if I have fun with some mates I get the moment of feeling really down and wanting to leave wherever we are. It worries me coz it gets stronger but I don't wanna talk to professional about it coz I don't wanna be shut in mental institution or something.

    Hi, it does sound like you could have depression, maybe anxiety as well. Please don't be afraid to talk to someone about it, these issues aren't going to go away, and will probably only get worse if you bottle them up. You don't have to go to a doctor, you could simply talk to someone from student support at your university, about how you're feeling and the concerns you have. It's highly unlikely that you'd have to go to a mental institution, there are lots of other ways to combat issues like depression and anxiety, counselling for example.

    I hope things start to get better for you soon :hugs:

    Same here. The crappy feeling comes and goes... i just keep myself busy
