I don't know if it is depression or not.

I am in my second year in college and so far I am feeling as depressed as last year. Last year All I could think about was going home and I was just about sick over it. And now I find myself doing it again. I want to go home so bad I cry everyday and I don't wish to be social and my grades are going down. I want to tell my family but I don't know if I am just homesick or if it is something more. Last year the feeling never went away and by the end of the year I was just about losing my mind. Does anyone have any advice at all about what I should do?

Hey Liz, is there counseling at your university? So you were fine all summer while you were home?

Re: I don't know if it is depression or not.

One of my friends was like that as well during her first year of college. She was very homesick. She was getting very stressed and moody very easily and actually tried out some anti-depressants and they really helped her. I would also sugggest talking to a counselor at your school. At my university, counseling is free since it's included in tuition. I also did the same and it was great to be able to talk to somebody about it who I know I could trust. At first it was kind of weird but I got used to it pretty quickly since the counselor was very nice. I also tried anti-depressants after talking to her about it for a while. The one I tried wasn't for me, but I may consider another soon! Some people get depressed from things happening and some people don't have a good reason or at least don't KNOW why they are depressed. Some days I have no idea why I feel so down! It's different for everyone.

I am not sure if there is counseling at my school but I sure will find out. I was fine during the summer somewhat. What I mean is I did seem a little happier but I don't think I was the same person as I was before I ever went to school.
