Kath - mental health

Hi, i was wondering if you could give me any suggestions. About 2 years ago I had a lot going on in my life and I had a lot of people to support and be there for plus I had my exams. With no one to talk to about the pressures of all this it built up inside and I began smoking and had various instances of self harm. I managed to get over the worst such as I quit smoking and it had mainly gone away. However since then, more times that not, I will feel not motivated to get on top of work, I feel alone even though I have some great friends, I can't enjoy things as I used to I have a very short attention span and I get anxious in social situations even around people i know. I live for the days which come every now and again which I am full of life and laughter, how I used to be. The only way I can feel better is to keep continuously busy which is hard when at university in a small town. I have been close to seeing the doctor a few times but I chicken out and have never gotten around to booking an appointment. I have told one of my friends but I find it difficult to show my feelings so I act as though I am okay even though I am struggling. If anyone has any suggestions on how to help with this I really appretiate it.
