Group Therapy: Afraid to Break Up With Boyfriend

This question is an excerpt from Group Therapy in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!
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?
