    I'm a first year student studying Accounting and Finance. I've had severe depression, BDD and social anxiety for a few years. When I came to university it actually got much worse, especially after a few particular incidents. Things became overwhelming, I was struggling to cope and I attempted to take my life in January. My mentor told me to take some time off to recover (lecturers had been informed). I'm feeling slightly better now but I've missed a few weeks of lectures and now I'm panicking majorly because I hate missing lectures. The lecturers upload the slides online but it's not the same as being in the actual lecture. Am I screwed? I have passed all of the modular exams we've had so far but I am having a huge panic attack now. Can I bounce back academically or am I f*cked??

    And prior to my attempt, I hadn't attended all lectures before that because my social anxiety go so severe I couldn't even leave my room.
