    Hi I was wondering if anyone can help me because I am going through a lot right now and need some advice.

    I started University about a month ago and so far its been a whirlwind experience of highs and lows - some days I love it here, other days I hate it.

    I am studying Primary Education but I'm not really sure if thats what I want to do or if I have the confidence to be doing this yet. I get on well with everyone I am living with and the people on my course but I don't feel ready to do the course yet. I have been set my first assignment about a week ago and I haven't done any of it yet. Whenever I come to writing it I doubt myself and normally end up in some sort of panic attack.

    I am also on school placement from next week onwards where I will be teaching a class, but I do not feel ready to stand in front of a class and teach yet and already just thinking about it really scares me.

    I suffer with anxiety and a bit of depression so getting myself into University was a battle in the first place - having to get myself to go to interviews and other situations.

    Before starting university I had a boyfriend of 2 years. We came to university together but things didn't work out and we aren't together anymore. I'm finding the break up really hard to deal with especially with everything new going on around me as well. Its worse because he's at the same university as me and I hate seeing him around when I'm really struggling.

    I need some advice really on what happens if I was to leave university now and also if anything like this has ever happened to anyone else?

    many thanks

    Take a deep breath. And breathe. you can do your assignment.
