I'm new to this so bare with me. First at all, I am a college student but a few months ago I got diagnosed with an anxiety disorder. This disorder has been eating me alive in ways that I didn't think were possible. According to my psychologist, the disorder comes from years ago but mostly from my parents' situation. My parents haven't had a healthy relationship since I have memory but when I started college, things just got bad (I stay home for school) to the point that it hit me hard once they decided to separate and start their divorce. I went from being a great student with A's to the student with nothing but C's and a couple of failing grades and well this is hitting me hard today as med school seems nearly impossible to achieve. I am trying to find ways to keep myself fighting this and show that I am tougher but I can't at times so I was wondering if anyone has any good ideas on how to cope with the anxiety. Anything will be much appreciated, thanks!
