Burden to my family

So this is my second post here. Things got worse. I'm feeling like a burden to my family. Is going to be like 5 months with my anxiety and depression problems. My family is really worried about my change of personality. They talked with me about 3 times now but I just can't go back to my usual self. I feel very guilty about this. I have nightmares every night and I can't sleep.

I feel like I don't deserve to live. I'm just a burden for everyone.

What do I have to do? What am I even here? How can I go back to university and face everyone?

You aren't a burden, no one is, you haven't done anything. You're family is worried about you because they care for you, they love you. I've been dealing with similar things for a while and really the best thing you can do is be honest with them, because if you don't tell, all they can do is look and assume something that may not be true. Of course, this depends, like when my family noticed something was going on I had to tell them. How were they? They were confused, they looked at me weird for what felt like forever, but they accepted it. If you feel like you absolutely have to do something about it you are completely wrong, you are going through this and you're hurting, you're going to need some support from your family and friends if you want to heal. And if you aren't ready, feel free to message me, as anyone in this site would be I am here for you. We struggle at least once in our lives, it is our choice how we deal with it. Struggle and challenge are the things that truly change you. Good luck :)
