I have delt with anxiety for 8 or so years it's never been panic attack level but has had a massive impact on my life. Last year I planned on going to uni was so excited I really wanted the experience and to meet new people to get out of my comfort zone and do commercial photography which I loved got offers from all my unis but suddenly didn't want to go I felt I wasn't good enough to do the course other people would want it more than me or Thinking my anxiety will get in the way and I didn't want to leave half way through the first year so I didn't go. Took a year off relaxed got help from doctors and now I want to try again but now I want to do interior design but again I feel like I'm not good enough other people will have more experience and laugh at the fact I want to be an interior designer 😤 It's so frustrating and stressful I just want to go to uni. Now it's a week till application deadline and don't know what to do also scared to go do interview 🙄

Go for it. Something I've found with anxiety is to push myself a bit, do things I don't feel wholly comfortable doing.
Noone will laugh at you, they will all be in the same boat. Think positively, rather than negatively. Or swap the scenario around. Would you laugh at someone else doing the same course?
Why do you think other people will have more experience?
