So I made a post yesterday, a long old story about how I got to this point but today it’s eveb worse. I just feel squeezed and stuck in this rot. I wake up every morning thinking about the anxiety and stress that I have. It’s getting too much I don’t know what to do.
I don’t think I would ever end my own life and I don’t really feel suicidal but I never thought I could to this place either.
I need help.

I know you must feel terrible now, and there is little I can say that can make a difference. But I just want you to say that, even if it feels like you will feel like this forever, it will pass. Hold on. Happy times are temporary, but so are bad ones. I read your last post and it's normal that you're feeling stuck with all that has happened to you lately. But the positive side is that now things can only get better. Think that at least you have realized you don't like your university degree in your first year. I've known people who realize in their second or third year So you're good in that sense! It's normal not knowing what you want to do (I'm still figuring it out with 24!) and you have still a lot of time to figure out what to do next. Just give yourself some time.
And I know that when you're feeling depressed you don't have the energy to do anything, but since you used to like sport and football, I'd recommend you to push yourself to do some sport. I haven't suffered from depression but I have dealt with really bad anxiety, and sometimes sport was the only thing that made me feel a little bit better.
Hope you feel better soon!

Step 1. Inform your GP. They'll be able to explain all the resources available in your area.
Step 2. Follow GP advice. The hardest bit is telling your GP, once you've told them, and they've recommended treatment, follow it.
Mental health issues are OK. They're like any other health issue, they can be treated, and made manageable. There's this stigma that we're not allowed to be mentally ill, but that's just not the case. It's OK to be ill. That's why we have doctors.
