    I'm around your age, and reading through your text remind me of how I was feeling a couple years ago: very hopeless, lacking confidence, not doing great in college, lacking direction in my life. I know telling you "you're too young to worry", "your problems are nothing", is probably not very helpful at this point. Your thing is "baby fever", mine was "I'm a loser because I don't have a boyfriend and will die alone". It happens.

    Medication and specialised help - really just someone I would talk to a couple hours a week - helped me a lot. I changed my major to a field I liked and was better at. I still don't have a boyfriend (lol) but I'm much happier and more comfortable with my life. If your previous experiece with a psychiatrist didn't work, please try again. I promise you it will be worth it. Feeling depressed is not inevitable.

    Best of luck

    @uniquenamelover, I bet you feel like we're all piling on. You came seeking validation and you might be interpreting all of our chippy success stories as the opposite.

    I just wanted to say I know how you feel. Really, I do. Worries about partnering up and future families are very, very normal, especially as you're in your early 20s.

    Yep, you're right. You asked if anyone felt similarly to how you feel and I expressed my own experience with that. I was talking more in terms of general 'you' and thinking out loud because obviously I am still very affected by my own inability to be a mother at this point in my life.
    I'm truly sorry for offending you, and I wish you the best.
