Hi, Applekat and welcome to the Depression Forum,
Why not go to the infirmary at the university and ask for help? That's what they're there for, and you need help, as you say.
Changing roommates in the dorm is an excellent idea. Since you are a real intellectual, you will enjoy immensely having the privacy of your own room. I assume your parents are able to afford the increase in cost if you are going to stay in a similar room and will be glad to assume it. I wonder if a single room will be comfortable for you? (I kept my daughter in a double-occupancy room after her roommate failed first semester her freshman year, and my daughter just loved having the room by herself--so much more privacy for study, etc.
I would think the psychologist on campus will arrange for you to
be medicated as soon as possible. He could forward your record to the appropriate physician to check for chronic fatigue I would suspect that you might have mononeucleosis from exhaustion.
Remember, the first year is always the toughest . After that, you're going to be meeting and sharing all kinds of intellectual pursuits and extra-curicular activities with sorority members and other friends.
