I'm not sure whether to stay or go on study abroad?
I applied at the beginning of Uni and then my department assigned me a place in a University in China this year. This however is dependent on me getting good grades this year.
I really want to leave home and have more life experience. However I've been struggling with a lot of depression this year and it's been really tough. I've had days where I can't even get out of bed, and I've had some suicidal thoughts. So I'm not sure if studying abroad is the best option for me at the moment.
As when I get to China, I will know no one, and have no friends or family there. I also won't get any counselling support and I've just been told that it's not possible for me to receive extra help for my dyslexia as I do at home. These are things which I feel are vital for me at the moment. On top of that I've been told that the dorm room that I have applied for, I'll have to move out in holidays, so basically in the holidays I'll be homeless as I'll have to find somewhere else to stay.
I am starting to question whether this is what I really want? As I didn't choose China and they picked it for me :/ However I don't want to just throw away an opportunity like this, as I know the potential in China could be really good, and it could even change me for the better.
