I've just returned to uni to complete my postgrad in psychology (I know - v ironic) and I'm not coping at all. I've been good for months. My old normal self but these past few weeks I've felt whatever this is slipping back. I'm now back at the stage where dressing is an effort and, because I've gotten on top of this before, it's even worse than if this was happening for the first time. My depression was easier to manage when I didn't have uni to worry about but now I have other responsibilities. There is a lot of pressure on me to do exceptionally well this year and my dream is to complete my course and become a psychologist but at the moment, I'm not coping. I'm not sticking to my study routines and falling behind whilst at the same time hiding from my supervisor how bad I actually am because I fear if he knew, being a psychologist himself, he'd have a duty of care to notify someone - and that would jeopardize my entire degree. What am I supposed to do? How do I pull myself out of this? I just dont know where to turn or how to juggle the fifty balls I have in the air right now without dropping one, or all of them.
