    I have anxiety/depression and have been on medication for about a year (Sertraline, 150g a day)... I'm starting my MA in a few weeks and I e noticed my anxiety is intensifying, and causing me to act out in toxic ways.

    Just wondering if anyone else here has anxiety, is starting a new uni, and how you're coping?

    Hi I had the same trouble and ended up having a massive panic attack on the first day and was in a right mess. So I went to student services and chatted to them and they were lovely and gave me lots of coping methods and made lots of allowances for for me. I would suggest going in to your uni before you start to just have a look around and get to know where everything is and see if you can talk to someone in advance. Just remember that alot of people feel like this and that you aren't the only one and that there are lots of support networks who have dealed with similar problems many times before and will be able to support u x

    Thanks, I think I'll do that. Another thing which comes into it is that I'm very competitive. I like to be the top of the class, and I know it sounds stupid, but I'm stressing out about our class hierarchy. It's just how it is (my course is an MA in contemporary performance, so ability is a huge factor in classroom
    I dunno. I'm just trying to stay calm and stuff, but it's difficult.
