Why College Students Suffer From Mental Illness

There is nothing wrong with people who suffer from an illness. Everyone goes through things and there are many stories in the world. Today, I will be talking about college students. Out of all the illnesses, college students mainly suffer from depression, anxiety, panic disorder, anger issues, or loneliness. The popular ones out theses few are depression and anxiety. I feel like everyone eventually or previously suffered from some sort of depression or anxiety. Nowadays it is more common from stress which I can verify because I went through it. Let’s just sum this up…College is stressful.

Many aspects of college can trigger stressful blow ups. For example, a bad grade, too much work, financial aid, exhaustion, etc. My stress came from not understanding. I hate when I am trying so hard to learn something but never can. It’s hard for me to obtain something that is very hard which is why I get very annoyed. From a few of my post, you guys might have caught it when I was talking about my physics class. That class has physically and mentally drained me. Today I had an exam and it was also the first time I stepped outside in five days. Yes, five days and I felt like a vampire seeing light because my room is dark from not opening the blinds (lol). Without being funny, this class has brought me down along with my GPA and I have been very angry over the past few days so I am ready for it to end. This is a reason people suffer. I was way overworked and that professor doesn’t care.

College itself is stressful enough but getting through it is what kills you. Students have so much to do like, living alone, making sure you balance is paid by a deadline, passing classes, etc. I hate deadlines so much because they rush you. That’s life for you. A fast paced disaster waiting for you to graduate so you can also experience. Harsh but true. I wanted to key my professor car so bad because of that class but I couldn’t find his car nor did I look. When I get angry, I look towards revenge by myself. I talk to myself until I am calm enough to leave the room. I had to watch an inspiration speech today before my physics exam because I wasn’t about to go. I still failed but It I tried. There is too much pressure.

I always tell myself that I am ok and that everything is fine but in reality it’s too much sometimes. That is why I like blogging rather than keeping a journal ( I still have a journal). You can just blog about what you are feeling. This was mainly about me complaining about my stress but others go through it as well. Over 40% of college students suffer from mental illnesses and that number is increasing because school is getting harder and more expensive. You would think they would ease up on us because of covid but no. They said, you still have to get through it. I really wanna key my professor car right now.
