Well I'm in my mid '20s and still in college. I struggle with depression which has lead to me struggling with school. I've had to leave school and I also tried changing majors. I feel like I'm now finally on the right track, but my illness has cost me a lot. It has cost me both time and friends. I am introverted because of it and haven't made as many friends as I think I should have. Because of this I have become overly attached to my boyfriend who is basically my only social network. I really want to break up with him but am afraid to because I would feel so cut off. I also have a weight problem and don't think other guys will like me. I guess my problem is a combination of low self-esteem, lack of a social life, and of course depression.
I'm working on getting health insurance to get treatment. And I'm hoping to make friends when school starts again. How do I build my life up again? How do I let go of a basically dead end relationship?
