    Hi all,
    I've been really struggling with my illustration course for the last 4 months. I've missed most of my taught sessions and am extremely behind on work. I have been very down for a while and i've had 0 motivation and oversleeping. I keep meaning to go to a counsellor at my university but wimp out every time. I'm not sure whether to just get to it and work on things i don't enjoy and feel like i cant do. See what my options are and possibly change course, or drop out altogether. I'm worried ill be the same on another course and worried about my job prospects if i drop out. Any advice welcome please, thank you.

    What reasons are making you miss your classes? I would definitely recommend talking to someone at your university - they can refer you to the right people or give you more information on available options.

    I think the main issue is over sleeping, which causes me to run late then the anxiety of going into the room late makes me not want to go.. and i'm just stuck in a circle. I also didn't move away for uni, i live at home and drive into town (around 40 mins) and then a 10 minute walk from where i park. Which also ruins my motivation.

    I'm definitely planning to talk to someone at the university this week. Thanks!
