    Hi all.
    Today I got an email from my year tutor whom I've never met before about a scheduled progress and attendance meeting. I've had no prior warning from my tutor and I'm worried I've missed something and it's become serious.
    Mostly my attendance has been good, I have stress induced IBS-D, and dairy intolerance. since i don't live in halls this sometimes makes it difficult to make it to uni. it was going ok until the end of January. During the first week of februrary my grandad had two strokes and renal failure, and since then it's all gone wobbly. my attendance has dropped, my anxiety has peaked. It has also been discovered my grandad has three different types of cancer, and yesterday I found out my aunty has breast cancer.
    I plan on telling my year tutor all of this but I'm scared that because it's so much she won't believe me. I guess I hair need some assurance and advice. thanks...

    I'd imagine that if it's a sudden drop in attendance that your tutor will believe you. I'd imagine they have enough experience to identify a 'story' when they hear one. Don't worry. I'm sure everything will be fine.
