    I am currently in my second year and just when I thought things were going okay I got messed about by a guy, I am tired all the time, and my mother has just been diagnosed with diabetes. I have two assignments to hand in 3 weeks time and I haven't been able to do much as I am pretty much spending most time travelling to visit my mother. I don't know what to do. I don't want to defer the year, but I think if I fail these assignments I might have to. I just feel like I need a break...I just broke down and cried because I thought I lost my memory stick. I just feel like a mess...I can't hold it together anymore. My family, besides my mum, aren't very supportive and keep blaming me for not helping to control my mother's diabetes and I just have had enough. I don't even know what to do or where to begin. I can't focus on anything let alone my assignments.

    I would suggest you to defer your assignments to a later date. Chances are, your performance in these assignments will be greatly affected by your mothers illness/taking care of her and the stress you have incurred due to this situation. You shouldnt be working around the situation, its not fair on you.

    I hope things get better for you soon x

    You need to speak to your personal tutor and explain everything! Don't down play how you're feeling it's really important they get a good idea of what's going on for you. Then hopefully they'll advise on what you should do whether that's deferring now or giving the exams a go.
