I joined MBBS on August 2010. On January 2011 my relatives bet me continuously for around 3 to 4 hours front of public that to all known fellows and for no reason they did that and later many people remembered that incident regularly by making fun of me for almost 2 years means from January 2011 to December 2012. And moreover previously few days before my relatives bet me I was been ragged by college seniors so I had went home. But my relatives bet me telling I was lying and ran home to quit medical and etc bad things about me. and later they kept on spreading negatives about me which I had not done. Infact even to my college Dean, Professors and Clerk. So everyday from Jan 2011 to June 2011 one or the other was scolding me. So I fear+sadness I didn't met anybody whom I know or anybody new. And parents were neutral. And flunked in June 2011 (1st year MBBS exam. And from that day till now I am dying in fear+sadness+anger on relatives+more anxiety+no proper sleep+not taking food properly+still not able to mingle with people. Didn't pass and trying to study or work or do something but couldn't do. Unable to forget those 6 months till today. I am sure I am not lying. So am I normal? Am I useless to live? I want to complete MBBS and even do PG. At that time my age was 18 and now almost 24 years. Is it worth if I start 1st year MBBS again.

Dear lybrate user, first of all, I want to tell you, that do not make negative comments to yourself and negative and pessimistic ruminations about self. Because you have that incident happened and because you were not aware of any reason behind why your relatives treated in an in-humanitarian manner, clearly reflects their insensitivity towards you and to humanity in general. Because a normal understanding person will not treat other person like this. Second due to this traumatic experience you were not able to concentrate and study also which is but obvious, as anyone who is in such kind of situation will definitely feels fearful, angry and anxious. Further, meeting with such people or even talking about them would make you more helpless and difficult to trust people around. I would suggest you to continue your studies which you have stopped in between and it is definitely worth full if you will study hard and put best efforts again to do mbbs and distract more in pleasurable activities which you find enjoyable and relaxing. Also, it is important for you to understand that you can not change people or their attitude, the only thing you can do is to manage yourself and adopt better coping mechanism which makes you more proactive towards any kind of challenging or difficult situation. Even if your relatives keep saying some bad words for you, do not give weight to them as they are of no use. Your aim is to achieve higher and success in life. Consult a clinical psychologist, who can deeply and better do management of psychological issues like, anger, fear and sadness and how you can socially adjust in any kind of environment. Take care.
