First off I am 18 now, and this has been going on for about a year or two, but it has slowly but surely become more and more of an issue and it is now finally at the point where I feel like I have to seek out answers and help for whatever this is. I do believe it is depression, since it started with the ending of my first and only serious relationship. While I thought I may have just been over emotional about it and I'd get over it within the next couple of months that didn't happen. Despite my logical conclusions on the situation it seems I've driven myself down into a case of depression that has lasted almost 2 years and it is now finally affect my health.
I feel weak and dizzy far too frequently even if I have had a full meal just a couple hours before hand
I have the worst troubles sleeping, and I can easily stay up until the sun rises.
Over maybe the last year or so I have unexplainably gained weight, while all my childhood I have been known for my remarkable metabolism.
I find it very hard to concentrate and think on things in everyday situations and my mind just sort of floats about (which is very unlike how I used to be)
and It seems everytime I do sleep I have all sorts of nightmares now. Never any good dreams or no dreams at all. Everytime I wake up it is with a feeling of dread and my hear sinking into my chest.
My grades in College have plummeted while my increase in absences is astounding and I am being forced to drop out now due to my inability to recover my lost time. Just because I have lost all will to really do anything.
I'm asking if anyone can relate to this, So whatever it is that is at me I can take care of and cure. I'm not sure if my health related issues are in fact related but if so it is obviously something I need to start addressing now. I feel like the last two years I have just slowly started spiraling towards unhealthiness, physically and mentally.
