I finished university in June 2016 and since then I guess I have struggled to adjust to life outside of education. I see my class mates going on and doing incredible things and all my friends have full time jobs whilst I cant get a full time job doing anything.

My friends have started to comment that I'm acting differently and that they are worried so I've been spending less and less time with them. I've applied for hundreds of jobs and some days are better then others, but usually I can't bring myself to do anything let alone apply for jobs, I think because of the constant rejection that comes alone with it.

So today I went to the doctors because I didn't really know what else to do or where else to go and I told him what I've been feeling and he basically said that what I'm feeling is normal so I don't really know what to think anymore.

I guess that that's why I'm here, any advice would be helpful.

This happens when you don't have enough things to fill your day with, its normal just like your doctor said, It can happen to anyone. You don't have a lot to look forward to and you sink into a sort of comfort zone where you cant be bothered to do anything and you get bored which makes it worse. Don't be worrying about it but do try to become more active, plan things to do throughout your day and try not to stay in your house all of the time. Get out more and give yourself things to focus and look forward too.

I hope you feel better soon, it is normal what you are feeling but you can sort it out.
