Hello Ghostboy, thanks for posting your comment and I'm sorry that you have hidden it for a year, that's a long time to pretend to be OK, and it happened with me for a long time as well.
There are a few options for you to consider, and I'm only suggesting this as I'm not a doctor,
-you could defer, go and see your doctor who may decide on medication and then refer you onto a psychologist where you can use the 'mental health plan', which entitles you to 10 Medicare paid sessions
-talk to a counsellor at the uni
-ring Kids Helpline 1800 55 1800 and these people look after people from 5 years old up to 25 years
-ring BB 1300 22 4636 and ask for their help
-Sane 1800 18 7263
-Mensline 1300 78 99 78
-Blackdog Institute (02) 9382 4530
There is help for you but please book an appointment with your doctor and remember all of us have had to struggle through our own type of depression, so we understand how you are feeling.
Hope to hear back from you.
