hey guys, im new here
i have not officially been diagnosed with depression..but i do believe i may have it and also anxiety problems.
im in my second year in college, and i really havent made a lot of close friends. i thought this year would be better, but ever since starting a new semester i just feel completely unmotivated towards anything. i sleep about 9-10 hours at night and usually take an hour and a half nap during the day. but i wish i could sleep more. i cant remember the last time i got excited about anything. sometimes i think that i just need to transfer schools, but then i think it would just be the same at any other school. then i think it will be better after i graduate, but then i think about how i probably wont have people to live with or a significant other, etc. afterwards. it seems like theres nothing to look forward. i get stressed out by the littlest things, like when it rains, when people walk too close to me, when i cant be alone in my room, etc. i also have been overeating..and im constantly thinking about food. its ridiculous but i cant stop.
the thing is, my parents arent very accepting about mental health conditions. a relative of mine suffered from depression and they were not understanding at all..they actually got mad at her when she speaked negatively about anything or talked about her depression.
does anybody have any advice on what to do? i just feel so lost..and that my life is so pointless.. i just dont know what to do.
