Welcome to ehealthforum

I can undertsand what you are going through but trust me at this age you have to concentrate on studies as this is the carrer building time.Stop being depressed and anxious.
You should learn to ignore those persons who are misbehaving with you and those which are of no concern to you should not affect you in any way.Think that how does it matter to you if they are doing this to you.You have to concentrate on studies and avoid all surrounding matters.
Start mixing with new people and make friends.Enjoy the activities which you are fond of as sports,music,movies.Apart from studies enjoy who are your close friends.Talk to your family.It is not going to help if your studies are affected.
Do some form of exercise and meditation to avoid any stress.
I am sure all this and with your will power you can definitely come out of this situation.
Take care!
