Sorry to sound self-absorbed in this but what started in December has only gotten worse. I think I may have depression or anxiety or something because I am not thinking like I used to. I used to be so excited about things like university and the future and stuff but as of late, I've been really struggling with motivation.

I constantly feel lonely because I feel as though I have no one. I can't focus on work and I just feel as though I hate waking up. I don't want to disappoint my parents or myself and I just feel trapped. Every month I'll have a depressive episode where I'll want to hurt myself or something and just disappear so I don't have to deal with the world. I'm just so anxious about the uncertainty of the future and it freaks me out and I'm not sure if I'm ever making the right choices in my life??? It freaks me out and I'm just not sure anymore.

I have only talked about this with my partner and they suggested I seek help from my GP but I'm just so anxious that I'll waste their time.
What does anyone think I should do? Any advice is greatly appreciated and I just feel so lost at this point. I hope this doesn't sound victimising or anything I don't mean anything like that, I just would really appreciate some advice.

I also agree that you should speak to your GP and that you most certainly won't be wasting their time.

hey!
These are very real problems that a lot of people struggle with, you are not alone, many people have been in this situation and have been able to overcome it so you can too!
Yo do not sound self-absorbed or victimising, you have every right to ask for help,, you wouldn't be wasting the GP's time as it is their job to help you as that is what their time is for.
I hope you find the help you need!
