    Trust me... Most courses begin with no one knowing each other.

    Just get really drunk before you go and everything will be okay.

    Oh, sweetie, that's really daunting for you. Try and see it as a new beginning and that means learning new things and making new friends. The first week is always difficult. Don't worry. X

    Im 68 and have really bad panic attacks. I left school in 1963 when I was 15. Last year, went back to uni and most of the young people were the ages of some of my grandchildren.
    Once you've taken the first step, you will be just fine. chin up and take a deep breath.
