I've had depression for as long as I can remember, I went to the doctors last year to get help and I have been on Prozac for the past year now and am recieving CBT. I am 17 almost 18 and am studying A-levels at college. The thing is, I don't have any passion left for the subjects I am studying. The only thing I enjoy is photography and I am studying that at college, but it's not going to get me anywhere. It's like 60% of me wants to drop out of college and get a full time job because I feel much more accomplished when I'm at work, I like the feeling of being needed and belonging to part of a company and also being self suffiecient and earning my own money. I feel like I could be a lot happier if I took this route, I could afford to learn to drive and get a car and move out with my boyfriend and all that stuff. But the other 40% of me knows it's sensible to finish my second year at college and then do all this stuff, but what's the point if i'm not going to uni? I feel like if I stay at college another year it's going to be a massive stuggle for me mentally like this last year has been. I just need opinions. Thanks
