    Did go out with friend, #Depression hitting again

    Home again. Exhausted. #Fibromyalgia is acting up and I have a persistent UTI or something acting up that doctor wanted to wait to prescribe me anything more. Been to urgent care twice.
    #Depression and #Anxiety started while out with friend, just a slow mummur in the background. Than brain fog. Than anxiousness. Now I'm in bed exhausted and my emotions are everywhere. I feel crazy and stupid. I'm trying to stay calm and not #Selfharm or do anything stupid.
    I just feel as if I'm a failure. My brain and body is already throwing a fit. I want to cry. Why can't I be free of this? I really am spiraling fast. Suicidal thoughts are kinda acting up. Kinda. I won't do anything

    I need help.

    Hello, everyone. I hope you all are doing good.
    This is a long post but please read it if you can.
    I've been inactive here for more than a year now. Due to my mental illness, I was not able to keep up with things. Personally, and Socially. I need some advice and if anyone could help, that woul be great.
    I have completed my graduation and I'm about to complete B.Ed (Bachelor of Education), this is a degree that you need to have in order to go into the academic field. I want to become a professor. On fourth of July I'll complete my B.Ed and then I'll be eligible to teach in school upto class 8th as I have done only undergraduation and not postgraduation. After completing undergraduation and B.Ed, one is eligible to teach in schools upto class 8th in India, and if you have completed your postgraduation, then you're eligible to teach upto class 12th.
    But the thing is I want to be a college teacher (a professor) and for that I have to do M.A. (postgraduation) and then clear NET (National Eligibility Test) and after that I'll be eligible to teach in colleges. But I have to give an entrance exam to study M.A. and I was not able to prepare for it at all due to my increasing mental health issues. And now I've my entrance exam some time in August, most probably. And I can't prepare all of it in such a short duration of time. If I'm not able to clear the entrance exam this time, I want to take a drop year and study for the entrance and then give it again. But my parents are not supporting this decision. They are saying that if I clear my entrance exam this time, then I can study from Delhi. Otherwise, I can study from Raipur, Chhattisgarh. I've done my undergraduation from University of Delhi, and now I want to do my postgraduation from JNU (Jawaharlal Nehru University). Both these universities are the top most universities of India and after having the experience of University of Delhi, I want to get an experience of JNU. I've set my level according to that. And studying from Raipur, Chhattisgarh (where I live currently) is not appealing to me at all. The level of education over here is not as good as Delhi not is the environment.
    But my parents want me to get a job as well and their suggestion is that I apply for a job at a school and then do my M.A. simultaneously. But I don't want this. I want to do my M.A. properly, clear NET and then become a professor. My school teachers are also suggesting me to apply for a job at a school.
    All this is very confusing. My aim was fixed but due to all this I'm having multiple doubts. This is increasing my mental health issues a lot. I have depression and anxiety disorder and my self-esteem is becoming low day by day. It's getting worse with time and with so much pressure and confusion. If anyone of you can suggest as to what I should do, then please suggest, it would be of great help.
    Please tell me from the options below:
    1.) I should take a drop year if I don't clear my entrance exam this time. And then give it again next year. (The entrance exam is for University of Delhi and JNU (Jawaharlal Nehru University)
    2.) I should apply for a job at a school and then do my M.A. from Raipur, Chhattisgarh.
    3.) I should do my M.A. from Raipur, Chhattisgarh. Then clear NET and then apply for a job at a college.
    Or any other suggestion that you want to give apart from the ones mentioned above.
    Please help me.
