    Im in my second year at university studying textiles and I'm struggling like mad. I can do the work!! But i have really struggled being away from home. I am really close to all my family and have always had real difficulties leaving them, but since going to uni its all been magnified. Coming home in the summer after first year I basially had a complete breakdown. I was terrified about going back to university. I have started back, part time at the moment, but I don't see how I can continue. But what am i meant to do instead? The plan was always to go to university and enjoy it and do well. But I don't feel like that is even possible. But if I decide to drop out. My parents don't want me at home, they have their own lives now. Because I'm at home its causing so many arguments. My mum is always yelling at me that Ive done something wrong, and then always coming out with "well you wouldn't have to deal with this if you just went back to university". I know that they would be so disappointed with me if I dropped out. But how am i meant to go through another year of hell. I have no idea what to do and i feel so very lost. Help me!!
