I hate uni. I’ve been here since September and I feel like a completely different person. My anxiety has got so much worse and I’ve developed depression. I can’t remember the last time I felt properly happy. I’ve never felt so miserable, like full on despair.
I hate being in halls and my confidence has just disappeared so I’ve found it really hard to meet people. I hate the pressure of going out and socialising. I get on with my flat but we’re not super close. The course is really full on and I get myself so worked up about completing all the work on time. I think so negatively that I’m convinced I’m going to do really badly in the exams. I just feel so exhausted.
Part of me wants to drop out because I know that uni isn’t worth me feeling like this and I know I’m making myself ill. But the thought of doing it and feeling like I’ve failed scares me. I’m not sure what else I would do and all of my friends are at uni. My other option is to stay at home after Christmas and carry on with the course from there, and come back to my uni city when I feel up to it. But I don’t know if I will, and I know I’ll need to make a decision about housing next year too.
I feel like lots of people who feel like I do would just drop out but I don’t feel brave enough to make a decision. I worry about how my life will turn out.

Hey
I know , I felt the same.
I felt like running away. I felt like I am in a prison.
But you know what, I went home for a while, sort of reset my mind, and came back, and I felt lot better.
Things will get better , since you have just started, this is normal, give yourself some time, things tend to get better over time.

I’ll be home soon so hopefully I can think a bit more rationally about this. I just want to be happy though and I don’t know if uni is a healthy place for me to be.

Yeah. I’ve never been sure about uni but it’s seemed like the only option for my life.

Your university (and/or the student union) almost certainly has some sort of counselling service - do look for that for support.
Do talk to your module leaders and your course leader (do you have a personal tutor). I think you will find that most staff will want to be supportive and understand that the impact from Covid has made this a particularly challenging year.

Good luck.

Yes
Don’t rush into any decisions. Things seem to get better over time.
Even I felt sooo sick during my initial days.
Eventually things will be back to normal.
You will get used to it , trust me.
This is first your time, that’s all

Go home, get your mind refreshed.

Make friends, there will be definitely someone out there who feels exactly like you there.
Wait for couple of months more, if you still feel same, then think about dropping out.
