hi hello i'm not really sure about this forum stuff but i'm gonna give it a go because i've tried working through this myself and it's not worked out very well. basically i suffer with anxiety disorder and it means i regularly suffer anxiety attacks. as you're all aware exams start in a few days and if you're unfamiliar with anxiety -- bearing in mind that it's different for everyone who has it -- it means that i'm currently way way above a healthy stress level and i've basically decided despite being targeted at an A in all subjects at this point that i'm going to fail everything and drop out of college and probably never get a job or succeed at anything???? does anyone else either a) feel the same/similar or b) have any coping techniques? thank you for reading this i know it's not very articulate but again i don't know the protocol for forum posting. have a great day!
Also include one "repair" day a week where you don't revise but do things like cleaning, pampering yourself, spending time with friends or family, etc. Things that make you and your environment better so that when you start revising again you feel ready rather than things are too much.
Hope this helps
I would say that I have minor anxiety whenever I'm faced with a new situation or if I'm trying to send an email. I kid you not, it takes me at least half an hour to send any email, even if it is one sentence long. Write, read, reread, reread, reread x10, ask mum if it sounds right, approval, reread x3, hesitate, send, throw phone across the room an aim for a soft surface. It takes at least another ten minutes for me to function normally again, and then when I think I've forgotten about it, it pops into my head at random moments throughout the day and then it's all I can think about. Every time. I hate it.
