I'm doing law in university. First year. This is supposed to be a pretty demanding course.
I've been clinically depressed for about 2 years. I'm an international student. I've been seeing a psychiatrist for about a year now in my home country. I've been on medication for a year. I honestly thought I was getting better and maybe even cured. My psychiatrist was planning on decreasing the dosage and gradually weaning me off the meds. However, ever since I've been at uni, I have been depressed again. I can feel the sickly ****ing disease again. At first I thought I was just homesick maybe. Just miss my family. Everyone has the occasional blues. But I've been like this for 2 weeks. I haven't talked to anyone about this yet. The thing though is that so far, my studies have been going brilliantly.
Any pointers on what I should do? Did I make a big mistake going to uni in a foreign land?
Would you pay less for a humanities degree?
