Thanks for using health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your given history in detail.
It appears that you are really stressed by your life and thinking.
Although you will accept that there is nothing specific to be upset about.
Among all the things you have stated there is no reason for you to get upset.
If you are anxious about the future you should visit a psychiatrist who can help you with some talk therapy sessions.
Do exercise regularly and eat a good diet.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.

thanks for using health care magic.
Your symptoms are due to depression and stress.
You should consult Psychiatrist for detailed evaluation and management.
Doctor may prescribe anti depressant drugs like fluoxetine or sertraline or paroxetine and psychotherapy/counselling session.
You may start stress management techniques like relaxation, Yoga, mediation or breathing exercise for control of your stress.
I hope you can get rid of stress easily.

Welcome to HCM
Stress is a natural part of life.Stress is hard to define because it means different things to different people; however, it’s clear that most stress is a negative feeling rather than a positive feeling.You may feel physical stress which is the result of too much to do, not enough sleep, a poor diet or the effects of an illness. Stress can also be mental: when you worry about money, FUTURE , a loved one’s illness, retirement, or experience an emotionally devastating event, such as the death of a parents etc.
It will take determination, persistence and time. Some suggestions may help immediately, but if your stress is chronic, it may require more attention and/or lifestyle changes.
Some tips that will help you if you follow them
Be realistic
Healthy life style
Take one thing at a time
Spend more time with friends and family
Give in occasionally. Be flexible
Go easy with criticism

Somehow or other you are bored up because of your hostel life. Even if we take it as home sickness you have lost your mom. so far you din't had a feeling like that. That means so far you have adopted for this way of life. "Accept the pain" is the greatest word in the world. One man life is different from others. Somehow or other people get adopted with what they get. You are an MBA student. The future is in your hands. You are studying a PG course, in which you may be placed to control others.
Past is past. Present time is in your hands. Your duty is to study and develop your leadership capacities. Thing that you are superior to others. See the world around you - how many people are living lower than you. If you go on think about yourself only you can't come out of the depression which leads your tension. Psychotherapy is available. but is secondary.When you have psychotherapy within you how can others help You. Be optimistic. After this you can see a new world and you can plan your future with a calm thinking and prayers. Talk with friends. Other than your studies engage in social activities. The world is yours. you can try meditation also. Understand that in this current world majrity of people don't care for others.
Best wishes
