Just trying to figure things out

Hi!

I'm Adess. I'm 20 years old and a junior in college in New York. Lately I've been feeling nothing like myself. Everything bothers me, I'm unhappy with my life and how it's going and I constantly battle stress and anxiety every single minute of the day. My problem is I don't know how to actually deal with these problems. I'm kind of a loner and I don't talk to people or family. I was wondering if anyone could help out

Hi Adess! I am sorry you are going through all of this. It is hard to be 20 years old and in college, for sure. What kinds of stress are you experiencing?

Maybe you should figure out if your college offers personal assistance to students like a guidance counselor would or school psychologist. I'm 19 and i think college is my only option from moving out and getting away from my parents who are crazy. I am afraid to go in a way because i never felt ready mentally and i feel like my depression and anxiety would get worser due to my low self esteem and other issues. I can see how you can be stressed out. Just try to speak out to a person you trust, it might help getting it off your chest. I'm sure a few other students are going through the same thing and may feel like you. I pray that things will get better. Keep your head up. ❤
