So I've been pretty down for a year now (on and off for about a month at a time) but recently I haven't been able to shake that feeling for a few months. I've just started uni and am struggling to even get out of bed for lectures now. Me being constantly sad and disconnected is stopping me from meeting people and progressing in my degree, to the point where I've thought about dropping out. I constantly feel demotivated, sad and tired, also because some nights I can't sleep until 3-4am.
No matter what I do I've always got that feeling of suicide and failure. People who've gotten help from Doctors, did it really help? And what do I tell them so they take me seriously? I just feel trapped.
