Unhappy Depressed - January 30th 2013, 05:59 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of suicide, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread therefore might not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I am in my second semester of college, studying architecture. Last semester everything went fine. But this semester I'm starting to get really stressed out with the school work. I start thinking about all the work that I have to do and about how I don't know how to do it or how other people's projects look better than mine, and I start worrying and getting anxious and nauseous, and I start crying uncontrollably. I hate the feeling, I've been spending days crying, and it affects my ability to do just about everything. I also feel lonely. My boyfriend and I broke up a few months ago and I feel like I have nobody to trust, to cry to. I can't take it anymore.

That's how college is a lot of the time. There is a lot of work and not an incredible amount of time to do it. You just have to manage your time wisely and prioritize your homework. Don't worry about how you're doing compared to other people. That won't help you at all. Maybe you could ask one of those people for a little help sometime. As for your boyfriend, all you can do is try to move on and be happy with who you are as a person. You were happy before him and you can be happy again without him.

I agree with what Rob said above. College can be rough, but it's all about organization of time. If you honestly feel like you're mood is getting in the way of doing your work, I suggest talking to your professors, most of them are understanding about issues their students face and want to help them, but if you don't say anything to them, they can't possibly help you!

Also, I'm really sorry about your boyfriend. I'm in the same situation, I realize how hard and devastating it can be to lose somebody you love and not not who to trust or what to do with that person. But I'm sure it will get better! Hang out with friends, and let them in. Just because one person hurt doesn't mean everyone is not worthy of your trust.

If you ever want to talk, I'm here for you!

all i want is a place to call my own and
mend the hearts of everyone who feels alone,
you know to keep your hopes up high and your head down low.
