Other Depression and physics

  1. Aug 2, 2015 #1
    I hate that I am not doing well in physics... I can't stop having suicidal thoughts and I hate it... All I want is to do well in physics and I can't for some reason.

    I refus to ****ing believe "you're just not cut out for it"... No.... Thats not the case... No one is ever just not cut out for it. I scored a 740 on the GRE math... I know I'm capable. There is nothing special about anyone else that I am not capable of...

    Why do so many ****in people quit their degree programs because they are told they aren't cut out for it? Why do we support this. There is nothing wrong with these ****in kids and yet so many people say.... "oh maybe its not for you"... **** off.... I hate that mindset...

    If you can't tell I can't I'm struggling with this horribly.

    This is not an issue we can deal with in an anonymous internet forum. If you are having suicidal thoughts, I strongly recommend that you get an appointment with a professional psychiatrist as soon as possible.
