    i have anxiety and have had it for a few years. i've just started my last year at school and i am the only one that has moved to another math class. everyone else stayed in the same one. in my new math class, when i am sat at my desk, i physically can not breathe at all throughout the whole class. which means for the whole hour i have to focus on just breathing and make myself do it and it is really difficult to do, and also means i cant concentrate. i dont know why, the only other time ive ever experienced this is in assemblies. i dont know what to do because i really cant cope in this class but i cant change. i dont know if i can go to a student support member and ask to be removed from the lesson and work in a quiet room, or if i can change classes again. i just dont know who to talk to but i cant stay there because it is just so uncomfortable.please help, it makes me so upset that i have to be this way

    Hi Hollie, you posted this originally in the Cambridge University forum, so I've moved it to a more appropriate place.

    Hi! I had similar issues in school. I spoke to my head of year, and they allowed me to work in a small classroom either by myself, and sometimes one other person who was in my year. It was in a separate building specifically for people who struggled being in lessons. It's definitely worth speaking to a head of year, or pastoral care, to see if there's anything you can set up to make school a bit easier for you. It would also be worth seeing your GP about this if you haven't already

    Talk to student support and they can help you. I would have thought that in your situation you could ask to move back to the other class. Do it asap cos the earlier in the year the easier it will be and it saves you some suffering too.
