    I've been feeling depressed for the last 1.5 years about not getting into the degree/career I wanted to and settling for a degree/career I don't want to do but have to because I'm going to retry and apply again as a graduate which is even more competitive as a graduate as there 100s of applicants and only about 20 places

    I've worked hard my entire life and just missed out by a bit and everyday it eats my insides I have a close friend doing the course and every time we go out all my other friends worship him because he's doing well I'm happy for him but I can't seem to think to myself what could have been If I got into that degree

    As a result of this depression I eat a lot, not obese but just overweight, I listen to music way more than I should to distract me, I've also aged a lot, I look 5 years older than my age all this stress has done me in which doesn't make me popular with the ladies, no one can ever guess my age correctly

    I'm just tired with my life, I cba anymore

    If you're talking about Medecine I say welcome to the club many many people( many future Doctors even) don't get in first time and that can be soul crushing. But life and adulthood is full of many many suckish and depressing events. I do get what you mean but at the end of the day it's only over if want it to be. If you really want that career prove it by picking yourself up and goingbfor it. It's your life so you've hot to make the decidion to either let go of that dream and make yourself fufilled in your current career and not allow jealousy to ruin your friendships,dreams and self esteem or make a game plan to act now go for it. For some the path to the same place is way harder and longer but it will be more satisfying and more character building than you could ever imagine.

    Hope that helps lol-Good Luck!
