    Have you spoken to the University Counselling Service? They have a range of support from basic study aid leaflets to group help to individual sessions with a counsellor to helping broker conversations with College about options.

    Maybe 'being paranoid about being recognized' is part of the problem - acknowledging that you're finding things difficult isn't some admission of weakness.

    Can you elaborate on what you're struggling with at Cambridge?

    Seek help. Aggressively. Don't be ashamed. Cam is a pressure cooker of stress and extreme striving, struggling is normal.

    Depression is very common, by some estimates up to 25% of Cantabrigians, with the work load and stress. My daughter had some difficulty in her 2nd year and, while her DoS was sympathetic and helpful, she was unable to get counseling help that was good enough. She did fine, but better support would have made it a lot easier.

    Go and speak to your tutor ASAP. You have college tutors for this reason. They are supposed to monitor your health, well being and academic issues about your subject.

    There is always a reason you are struggling, e..g the workload is too tough, you time manage bad so procrastinate, your diet sucks so your brain has no energy to work, not enough exercise so your thoughts are agitated and you feel distracted.
    Send an email to your tutor ASAP, and then go to their office and see them right away. You can ask for an appointment, but its better to see them directly, because this is an urgent matter.

    Everybody struggles You need to find some friends you can be honest with. People won't hate you if you're not perfect. Quite the opposite in fact. Getting through will be much easier if you have other people going through it with you.

    And second year is much easier. But yeh... tutor and counselling :yy:
