Not sure what to do

Hi, I have felt the same way for at least 3 months and it doesn't seem to ever end. I am down all the time, I have several uni deadlines which Im struggling to meet, and dont feel I have the ability anymore to meet uni standards. I find myself constantly using my casual job as an excuse for not doing uni work when I dont even work many hours. It doesnt help that my parents only see a 2;2 as a "drinkers degree" and continually say it, when all i can see myself getting is a 2;2 or less. I have a weight problem which is getting worse by the day, as I am eating way too much, but again i have no will power to stop. another thing is I have wanted to stop smoking for years and although I have cut down slightly, I still cant get any will power to stop, despite having to hide it from parents and that added pressure. Im sick of the expectations, and lack of energy to do anything useful. Ive not been in to my gp but took the online nhs test which says I have a score of 21. I dont know how to explain it to my GP if i did go.

  • Well it's s common scenario of low mood low motivation poor lifestyle and now the question will be how motivated are you to change?

    Certainly go and see your GP to consider, medication, counselling, lifestyle stuff, smoke stop, diet, exercise.

  • A 2:2 a drinkers degree?! I got a 3rd! To achieve degree level education is an achievement in itself.
