    I am way behind in my college work and just feel it's way to hard . I do not want to drop out because I don't want to let my family down but don't know what to do and just feel depressed all the time . I feel as I should just end it now

    Josh what you do is go to the councilors at the school and ask for support ok. Let them know how you are feeling overwhelmed and you need perhaps tutoring or more time to get projects done. talk to someone who can give you the supports you need to succeed ok That is what they want students that succeed so talk to someone a councilor ok hugs

    Josh, I was going to write the same thing that total Eclipse wrote. School counselors are often the best. Can you check that out?? They are SO used to kids feeling this way. Its not as uncommon as you might think. But it is important to get help,of course.

    You could also consider taking a lighter class load, at least until you get used the schedule.

    When I was in college I had similar feelings. I went to the school's health center and got psychological counseling. It was very helpful just to be able to talk to someone about the fears and pressure I was feeling. It didn't make it go away but helped me to manage those feelings and be productive.
