Feeling Really Down

Recommended Posts

I am in my last year of university studying a finance degree and got a month left till I finish my final exams. But things have not been going well recently, at university we get coursework to do but some are individual and meant to be done alone. Throughout university I've been doing my individual courseworks with my friends, as we help each other. I've been doing this since first year because mainly everyone does it at university.

But recently its been bothering me that i've done something wrong and because I have OCD my mind keeps focusing on it. Its got to a point were Im really feeling down and its affecting me mentally and spiritually, as soon as i wake up i start thinking i done something really bad and keep apologising to Guru Ji. Im not sleeping properly, nor studying properly or eating properly.

I don't what to do now.

See a counsellor. As you have OCD, have you ever had professional help with it? If so, go back to them and ask for help again.

You are going through a stressful time, at University. Does your University have any support group to assist students through stressful times?

Approach them first, and get it sorted. Don't be embarrassed to get help. When one needs it, then you just have to go for it.

Do relaxation exercise also, that will help for the anxiety.

Some self help tips:

It has taken a while for you to put that in your mind - the guilt I mean. It's hard to help change any mental thoughts for anyone. Maybe you can try whatever works best for you as a distraction in the way of a long walk or swim and freshen up.

Under constant pressure the mind wants to just escape the body. Try a meditation video, many of which are available on u tube.

Exams may seem the immediate world to you at the moment but there will be much more to deal with Once you are out of school. The amount of mistakes we make are numerous and have no end according to gurbani. Therefore it is important to keep spirits high and work always to develop a positive mental attitude. Keep your thoughts in check and always tell yourself you will try your best.

Imagine repeating another year - if that snaps you out of your present condition. That way you will want to give your best shot at things. Whats past is gone and will never come back. However the future is still in your hands - that is what you should worry about. Again only you know what will work for you. Don't be afraid to ask for professional help if you need it. Alternatively a self help might work faster for you as it is exam time too.
