I need help. I have been suffering from depression for a while now but it has been getting really bad, so much so, that my first year at uni has been so disappointing. I have not been able to engage, care. I can just about get through the day. But what is worst is the fact I have my final year exams next week but I am not ready. I have been so consumed that any learning has gone out the window. I won't be able to cope and do something that a year ago I would have loved to be challenged. I am afraid. I feel torn. I want to be able to do them, but I am so unprepared and the day is already a challenge. I could ask for a defer to the August exams instead of the May exams but I don't want my uni (or my parents) to think I am a failure or like I am just making excuses. I already had to miss my midsessionals because I broke down... I can't talk to anyone, I am in the fog and so so tired and just dead inside. Thank you for 'listening'. Any suggestions?
