DEAR DEIDRE: COVID-19 is ruining my life. I am a guy aged 19 from Brazil, studying here at university.
It’s a big deal for my family to find the money for me to study in this country and they want the best for me.

However, I’m not living my best life.
My family insist I should stay here during the pandemic because it’s so bad at home.
But I’m stuck here with a host family who are kind but not my own family. I’m feeling alone and scared.
I know I can’t change anything and feel so helpless.
DEIDRE SAYS: You are voicing the feelings of so many people of all ages – and knowing that you can’t control your present, let alone your future, is very scary.
Remember the saying: “This too shall pass.” It will and, in fact, you are gaining valuable life experience by being brave and independent.
Share your feelings with your family at home and your host family too. You can find free 24/7 crisis support by texting SHOUT to 85258.
