But it is often intense periods of unhappiness and I feel like I can’t beat. I am talking about only in the evenings when I am alone in my room at uni. Motivation is not a problem if I find my course content interesting then I will be able to study for it. It’s just intense feelings of unhappiness especially with myself. A few days ago being grateful and thinking about the good things in my life helped but the feelings are back again.

I am scared that I might be misdiagnosed if I go to my GP.

I am worried about using medication.

Do you have other symptoms? What are you worried about getting misdiagnosed with? You don't have to go on medication if you don't want to, they can't make you.

These are my symptoms whenever I experience these episodes:
1.) Feeling like a failure
2.) Hating myself
3.) Massive temptation to lash out at anything even when I am doing something like trying to open my door.

but like I said it comes and goes. Last semester was a bit worse as I found it harder to sleep and lost my appetite.

over the holiday break I had 0 desire/interest to socialise with anyone

I think you should talk to your GP. Ask if they can refer you for counselling/therapy. Take care.

imo alot of folk feel down cos we live such unhealthy lives. its all hyper stimulation, escapism, instand gratification. many hammer their brains everynight with hardcore pornography and jerk off into oblivion, binge watch netflix, obsess over social media, spend hours and hours pointless internet browsing, playing video games, eating junk food, never going to gym, or reading books, or learning skills or finding interests. generally not doing anything productive ever at all

for me when i cut out the bs i found that i feel so much better. the other day i put an end to smartphone the bs apps and i feel good man feels liberating
