    I am living in a constant state where nothing feels real and all that ever passes me is time. I feel that I am going to be alone forever, I have no idea what I want to do in the future, and I haven't been happy for so long I am so depressed at my current university, so studying abroad next year, but then I'll come back for a year left and have no idea what I'm doing after, and be left in this lonely black hole again.

    Take a short break from Uni so you can think things through properly after you've relaxed a bit

    Do you have hobbies, interests? And do you still enjoy them? What do you think would give your life meaning or happiness?

    Perhaps the change of environment i.e. studying abroad, is exactly what you need?

    I'm in uni too, literally having a mental breakdown, the amount of pressure they put on us is crazy. I cry myself to sleep everynight (quietly because I'm in the dorms :'()
