hey im new here just a few questions. I've been on and off with my boyfriend for about a year, i keep breaking up with him and getting back together but i think its a massive mistake once i do it. I do love him an di wanna be with him but i dunno why i keep doing this.
I've also been really emotional lately and i feel like i just cant get enough sleep im just constantly tired and sleeping during the day, its starting to effect my life because im not getting college work done or studying for my exams or anything??

i dont wanna go seek help as im embarassed so just thought id stop by these forums and talk to someone.

Hi Flynnser19,
 
It sounds like you could be depressed, the best thing you could do is see your doctor to make sure that there is nothing else going on.  And then go to counseling or get medication if you need it.  If you aren't well, you need to get some help.  It is no different than any other illness.  The best thing you could do is see your doctor first. 
 
I hope that you feel better soon.
 
Hugs, Karen

Hi,

I hope you are well today smile Try not to let what others may think get the better of you. You are who is important and if you are concerned about your health, definitely go see your doc.  Hopefully he/she can figure out what's going on for sure and that way you can start to cope.  It does sound like signs of depression, but you need to be diagnosed to know for sure.

Take care & welcome to HW!
