Looming Dread of School

I've never been able to go a day without worrying what's going to happen the next day, the thought of the future like an anvil dangling over my head by a thread. If something doesn't go as planned or the schedule changes my stomach does a complete 180. Any of you also feel this? If so, how do you deal with stress or a sudden change of plans?

I have only recently been feeling like this. I don’t deal with it well. I know that’s not much help, but just wanted you to know you are not alone.

I appreciate the response. Good to know someone's in the same boat. With school I'm less scared for my future and just more of a fear of what my parents are going to think of my grades since 1st semester's about to end. Why do grades have to be mailed to parents honestly.

Hey!

I completely know how it feels to be caught off guard and without being prepared for a situation. Surprises and ambiguity causes me a lot of anxiety, I am a person who likes to stick to the schedule and when I come across uncertain situations it just messes me up! And the thing is future is always going to be ambiguous no matter how full proof my planning is therefore thinking about it causes anxiety. Haven't been able to find a way to counter this.
