someone please help me this morning. I am supposed to start school this morning. I am extremely anxious, and sad because of it. i feel overwhelmed because I am starting back after a long time. I am doing this on my own, and the people who are supposed to support me are not there. i am scared i will fail (anxiety depression, health issues, and finances). just sad and alone and not making it out of bed

Are you starting high school or college? If so, meet with your advisor. That’s what they are there for. It’s always overwhelming to start school. You will do great!

Thanks for the vote of confidence. I will definitely meet with counselors tomorrow

I can relate to that feeling. Its a really tough one. Just remember everyone there is for the same reason you are. Its a bunch of other nervous people forcing themselves into a room they don't want to be in because they too want to learn and gain something. You won't be alone. You've got this

Thanks. It helps to know that it not just me :)

Hi. I’m starting school up again after transferring schools. I went to school in Canada and now I’m back in the states. I know it’s hard because you get use to things and now you’re starting all over again. I personally have never liked school. Something I told myself this school year is I said “do one semester” once you finish that semester then ask yourself “ can you finish this degree or are these classes too much “ I have pushed myself over the years and because of that my mental health has gone down to the point I’m surprised I’m still here. If you really want the degree go for it. But don’t be afraid to take your time. Finish the bachelor in 5 years to make the load less. I’ve learned I’m not cut out for a bachelor so I’m trying an Associate Degree. But I think I’m to the point I’m not afraid to say ok this isn’t working.

I’ve missed class so I could cry in my room before. Just don’t push yourself to much. Know your limits. Your mental health is everything.

Hello nothelpless. I went back to school at 35 and got my bachelors degree. I felt the same way you did. I just took it 1 day at a time. When you feel anxious do not react until you calm down and have had a chance to digest it. Make a point to think about things logically and not emotionally. This one is hard, you have to FORCE yourself to think logically because emotional thinking comes naturally and overwhelms your logical thinking. Take 1 day at a time and get through it as best you can. Make sure you know where your classrooms are well in advance so you know where to go the first days of the semester. Also, make lists of when things are due. These things will all help you through it and you will have some bad days but overall you will get through it with flying colors and it will make you a better person, I promise!

Thank you for your kind words. i think i will start tomorrow. i have to prepare for it today

I'm being really emotional right now. My class is closed. I have been saving the wrong class all this while. I am kind of relieved but sad that I have to postpone and plan properly. I can gett everything ready ahead of time find out who the instructor is. What books to buy. I am too scared to tell anyone that I messed on this. But I have to start planning today. Please wish me luck. I want to make it in this life. Any words of encouragement would be helpful. I leaned on this group yesterday and it helped
