Guys I'm feeling nervous: UPDATED

I'm in my college parking lot right now. I'm here because I have to talk to a science and math dean because I have to request to take a class for the 3rd time because I did not complete it the first two time. And I have to have a reason and my reason is the anxiety And depression I've been experiencing. I don't have a doctors not saying so but I do have a copy of the medication I was giving a year ago. But I never took it. I'm thinking too much now. But I'm nervous I don't know if to drive back home

Hope you guys are doing good

UPDATE: so I got it done. No questions were asked. I also wanted to mention that I'm doing this because I feel I'm in a better state, mentally. I'm not 100% back but I'm getting there. I have my good days and bad. I have to take initiative and take control of my future and clear path to success.

I hope you can speak to the Dean, it may help a lot, I do hope so.

Sending you vibes of strength to do this.

You may well get support if you can tell him/her

You have a very valid reason..

All good wishes to you xx

My only advice to you would be to go ahead with your request and just get it done. There's no need to provide any reason, besides, why do you want your deans to know about your anxiety?

I mean you can share your personal problems if they are close and co-operative. However, giving that as an excuse isn't an ideal thing to do.

If you want a class, you should get a class.

BTW, I wish you a good health and a worry-free life.

As Olivia40 mentioned above, you may get support from your deans if you approach them directly. Go ahead and try.

Oh well done for going in. I know this sort of thing isn’t easy for us to do. In fact it’s very difficult..

In my opinion if you don’t speak to her you may be more anxious wondering what to do etc.

I’m here if you need to chat while you wait.

I’m thinking of you ..

Not to be a downer, but..you’ve tried twice before to take the class and didn’t finish. Do you feel you are in a place now that your anxiety and depression is under control and you have a good shot at finishing this time? I just ask because if you aren’t, maybe wait and try the classes again at a later time.

Why didn’t you take the medicine that was prescribed to you a year ago? It might have helped.

Mentally I fell I'm ready not everyday is amazing some days just suck and some days are better. And most of my depression comes from the anxiety and how I've let it take control of the decisions I've made, I've also put this off for a while and it's time I grow a pair.

As for the medication I'm not down to trade in anxiety symptoms for side effects and then having to withdraw from them latter on. I think medication is amazing and helpful for others but it's just not for me and I've decided natural is the way to go

You're not a downer I get the concern :)

Yes agree with speakthtruth. where you are at with your MH currently should be a strong consideration in your decisions.

I guess If you feel with some support it could be achieved. I was hoping if you mention it to the dean she would guide you to some support if that is possible, and you feel it would be enough to help..certainly in my opinion you should be in touch with your dr.

Your health as I’m sure you are aware is the most important.

Take care x
