Hi everyone, I recently signed up to this site and was wondering if anyone would be able to clear up some questions I have.
I first thought I may have depression a few months ago but since it's such a serious topic I'm always trying to put myself off. I'm 18 and started uni in September, I thought starting a new place and making new friends would be the best thing for me but it doesn't seem to have done much to help me.
I constantly have these feelings of worthlessness, I can be sitting in a room with my family and feeling like I have no purpose. I feel sad a lot of the time, feel like I've messed everything up and ruined the things that were working well for me. A lot of the time I have trouble either falling asleep, around Christmas time I had trouble getting out of bed on a morning and over the passed few days I've been feeling like that again. I feel lonely and don't feel as though I have anybody to talk to, but even if I could talk to someone I don't want to burden them with my problems.
Is this cause for concern? I know I'm still growing up and hormones are normally up and down but this has been going on for so long I'm starting to get worried.
I'd appreciate it if anyone has any ideas, or if anyone would be willing to chat.
