I think this is the crux of your problem. You need to get excited again! Honestly, I felt something similar during my last year of college - I got super unmotivated because I was completely disenchanted with higher learning etc by that point. Here is an off-beat idea: take a year off.I don't think I've felt happy in the last six months and it's really kinda starting to ruin my passion for learning, medicine and life in general.
Agree with this. Feeling like that for half a year is something you need a physician to check out. Withdraw from school until this is under control. Good luck!Depression is not an illness that can be treated on an anonymous message forum. Get to your school's counseling center right now.
Let's put it another way: if you had blood in your urine, would you go see your doctor? Depression is as real an illness as whatever causes hematuria. Go get help NOW.
I can't imagine transferring once would affect you at all.Thank you for your advice. I understand how med schools would look at it in a negative manner and I imagine it would hinder my chances somewhat...
If I do end up staying at this school, do you think med schools would be okay with the fact that I ever transferred in the first place?
I'm glad you sought out counselors at your school. The first (and often, hardest) step is to acknowledge you have a problem and need professional help. I was in a very similar situation. For me, it felt like my world had been turned upside down and I was frantically scrambling to gather up the pieces of my life together. Only after years of dragging out my suffering did I realize I had to withdraw from school to address my medical condition.Yeah, this is what scares me the most. I tend to not realize how the situation might be until I'm in it. I may not be as homesick as I was the first time, because it won't be all new to me, but I doubt the anxiety will go away until I learn how to cope with it, and that takes time...
My philosophy is, if you find yourself absolutely yearning to be in a relationship, then you're not ready for one at all. There are certainly exceptions, but this is my general rule of thumb when I feel my emotions are clouding my judgement. You're in a vulnerable position, and it's natural to want someone to be there for you. Who doesn't want a shoulder to cry on, or someone to reassure you that things will be okay? Relationships are always wonderful when they work out, but heartbreak can completely floor a person. It's not something you want to deal with at the moment.Thank you so much. Another thing I wanted to share is that my crush is at College #1. I know this is really stupid and all but I like him so much that I am willing to pay all this money and do whatever I can to be near him. But obviously this is naive thinking considering I don't even know my crush very well or if he even likes me back.
So yeah...I actually feel like my world has turned upside down as well. I'm going through (what I bet) has got to be one o the worst feelings in the world. It's a mixture of unbearable longing, sadness, anger, jealously and disappointment at myself for making SUCH a unbelievably stupid decision. It's hard to believe that things will ever get better
Can anyone please give me some advice on this part of the issue? I would really like to stop crying every day.
