Hello, Studying Abroad, and welcome back to the Depression Forum,
You have been out of the local area for a visit to Spain and France, so the effort has been successful in one sense. Secondly, you've made up your mind to stay with the course until the 10 weeks are over and that's going to mean that you get your degree! That's a lifetime plus!
I wish that you would consider seeing a doctor and ask for some medical help. Even if you went by the university's clinic you will find that others have the same problem you do. They will know which medication will be helpful for you to take for another week or so.
You're going to be fine. Everyone here will help support you through each day if you need it, so keep in touch with us and consider us home folks. You'll look back on this as one of the great experiences of your life. We just need to help you get home off your mind, and you can do that.
Take care of all your physical needs; You already sound much more at ease than when you first posted. Getting to know some of your fellow students might help, too.
If there's a boyfriend back in the states who's making the problem more severe, ask him to lighten up a bit and talk more about what's
happening at school rather than the personal feelings of sadness. Let
him know you need lifting up a little.
I'm watching you and also prayerful for your peace.
