I'm new here.
I'm a first year college student this and I've been struggling with just about everything. It's my first time away from home (6 hours away) and the first time I've been away from my twin sister (we decided to go to different schools, she's 4 hours away). I only had two friends back home and they are both tied up with others things so we barely speak.
I never learned how to make friends and I work myself up too much to talk to people. My roommate is nice but she's always home because she lives 30 minutes out. I can go several days without speaking aloud to anyone. I'm either in my room or in class and the only other time I come out is to eat in the dining hall by myself.
I've never been diagnosed with anything and I would never self-diagnose because my best friend suffered depression and I know how serious it is. However to just say that I'm homesick seems doesn't seem right.
I don't know why I wrote this. Perhaps it's because I'm lonely. I cry sometimes when my roommate is away when I'm feeling really empty inside. I guess I need some support.
I don't know what to do.
