    Any advice is very much appreciated .

    Having a bit of a tough time.

    For those who don't know I'm doing a degree in a subject I absolutely love. But as I am moving forward with it I am finding that I am just not up to the task. Most of the modules are OK I guess but maths is really really hard for me. I'm a mature student and hadn't studied maths for 9 years before I started this course. The polite thing to say would be I had forgotten everything (literally).

    I'm basically doing a one year maths course that is kinda equivalent to GCSE and AS / A2 levels with no foundation and it makes me feel really stupid. Added on to the fact that I haven't slept properly I'm really kinda thinking about dropping out (even though I know it will make me feel awful for ages if I do).

    On top of that I have a big group project coming up and that is terrifying me as I hate group work. It makes my mental health issues 10 times worse having to deal with other people and the stress is really going to get to me.

    I just wish I could sleep properly.

    What's your degree again? I think you should make a list of pros and cons for each one, which one is most relevant to the career you want, which you'd find most enjoyable (there's no point taking a module you'll absolutely detest and will make you unhappy), which one you're best at?

    Talk to your lecturer, definitely. Explain what areas you're struggling in, and ask what you can do to catch up. Things like: getting an extra, simpler, textbook, hiring a tutor (if you can afford it ), finding a study partner (preferably someone you can swap skills with, so they feel like they're getting something back), meeting up with the lecturer regularly to check on your progress, maybe do a few extra assignments, asking for more detailed feedback...

    In short, there are loads of things you can do, so please don't despair. :hugs:

    I went out last night and now I feel so hungover it's unreal. Got so so much work to do this weekend, but I'm determined to finish it all, or at least have given it a good go and got most things done!

    Counselling still haven't replied. Made a GP appointment for Monday. Nurse asked if I needed an emergency app for today but they make you feel like mental health isn't an emergency. What is an emergency GP appointment? And i've seen the same man 3 times today and he's might be spying on me?

    Emergancy appointments are there way of saying daily routine appointments if you dont feel you can cope until after the weekend.

    i think some people take them when they dont need to, but i think in the case of mental health, then yes you have a right to take an emergancy appointment if your worried and stuff
