Uni Student (Loneliness)


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm a student in my mid to late twenties currently studying my undergraduate at university. I've suffered from contamination OCD and loneliness for half my life, as a result of growing up through social care services during my adolescences. I was just wondering if perhaps there was any other young adults/university students who might like to connect over Xmas? Feel free to get in touch.

Hi buddy, I'm 25 and went to University a couple of years ago, but had to leave due to OCD and Autism. I now live alone in a flat and feel very lonely as I don't have many friends either. I was adopted too.

Would be great to talk to you if you want? 

The Student Room is also another good place for students to connect. :)

Hey, 

Thanks so much for reaching out! I feel you.

The Student Room is good but sometimes I feel overwhelmed by some of the posts! Makes me feel anxious and lost. :(  This pandemic has made me realise we do all need someone in our life, if not a friend.

Hi buddy, no worries at all. Sorry, wasn't sure if you had tried The Student Room before, yes, I agree. I will reply to your PM now.

Also just wanted to say for anyone reading this^ My brother who also has OCD recently found love overseas with someone online and that in case anyone was reading this alone in the pandemic to remember that Your Success is My Success and My Success is Your Success. We all know what living with OCD is like. Let’s Connect and be there for each other!

Hugs to you both. I'm older than you two but socialising at uni is very difficult. I was an awkward kid and didn't really fit in but luckily the people I lived with were understanding. As you go through your twenties you'll meet loads of different people. I lived in Cardiff for three years, moving there two years after I graduated for work and I had such trouble making friends and was very, very lonely - as well as very bored and isolated on a daily basis and so was sluggish and depressed. I finally found friends in my current job. It's okay if you don't quite fit somewhere. Just keep an eye out. You'll find your tribe. 😊❤️
