I'm in university and I'm lost. I get to all of my classes and I'm doing well in all of them, but I don't feel right here. I feel like everything I expected my life to be, isnt. My boyfriend just recently moved out west until April, and no one really cares that I'm sad over that. He's not only my boyfriend but my best friend for 7 years and this is the first time we're this far apart for this long of a time. Our phone conversations are short and forced, he's always so tired by the time he calls he's cranky and it never goes well.
There isnt any way of me contacting him, I only get to hear from him if I happen to be in the room when he calls.
I dont feel like I belong here, and I don't feel like I belong at home anymore. I don't have any real close friends, the one I do have I think is just hanging around because she's now seeing my brother.
I don't have any dreams anymore, all of the things I aspired to I got, and felt nothing out of it. Nothing lived up to my expectations. I don't have any expectations now, I'm dreamless. I just want to be happy, and now I don't think its possible.
Anyway, most of you have more important and serious problems, I just thought I'd get it off my chest and see if anyone else feels the same way

You both miss each other and you both are greeving at the same time. Try and realize that just because he has moved away does not mean the end of a relationship. If it is truly meant to be, it will be.

Anything else you can think of that might be causing this?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Your symptoms are consistent with severe depression. You would need inpatient management in hospital. ECT may also be considered in your case.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
