It is great to know that you start college recently. I believe that is a very smart decision and it will be your concrete foundation for a great future.

We all know it is not easy. It is a whole new environment with pressure and adventure.  You may just need more time to adapt it, so don’t give up by seeing some initial negative result. Talk with the professor and other students, ask for help and advice.

There are some great articles online about how to be successful in college, here are some examples:

Are you working with a doctor on your OCD? If not, I strongly suggest you talk with your parents and get some professional help. And please also tell the doctor about your suicidal thoughts.

You are a very intelligent individual, and I am sure you notice that suicide is NOT a solution to your anxiety and school pressure. There are many ways to better cope with them.

Believe in yourself, imagine the bright future and don’t let the negative thoughts get in. Power yourself with positive thoughts!

Meanwhile, you will need lots of help, advice, and support from people around you (friends, family, professors, advisors, doctors …), so don’t hesitate to ask!!

May God Bless you!
