I am a student and i am married. husband is not staying with me and we meet on week ends because of his job and my studies. my married life is going good but i have problem with my studies, i am not willing to attend the classes regularly, i am too much afraid about studies, some times i like to live locked up in my room. i am very much afraid about exams and practicals. my husband is always encouraging me and consoling me but i am acting happy in front of him but actually i am very much depressed. only one year is left to complete my course but i am finding it very uneasy to complete it. now i am totally hating this course but for my husband's and parent's sake i am forced to do it. my parents always advise me to concentrate in studies and try to love my course but i find it too hard.please help me to get out of this drastic situation because sometimes i feel that i must commit suicide.

Hi, welcome to the ehealth forum and I am glad to help you.
You seem concerned by the loss of interest in studies with the thoughts of suicide coming to your mind.
You must consult a psychiatrist for complete evaluation of your case as you might be suffering from major depression and may need immediate care and therapy. Your life is precious and the circumstances that you find yourself in will change and proper consultation with the doctor can help you get out of the difficult situation that you find yourself in. You might be helped by medications and other therapies like cognitive behavioral therapy and interpersonal therapy.
Hope this helps. Take care.
