overwhelmed by everything

im just tired and overwhelmed. I've finished my first placement and I feel happy and grateful that I was able to learn so many things. I'm currently back at uni for a week for a presentation and I'm just worried and stressed out, I have everything planned out and so does my group, I'm just worried about the stares people will give, people telling me to raise my voice because it's low most of the time, people asking questions, its just too much. i don't like presentations at all. but I know ill get through it.
after that, I have my second placement which will be at the hospital and I'll need to complete 300 hours, I don't know how I'm sure I can do it. the first couple of weeks I wont be available due to family stuff, only for a couple of days. but yeah, I just wanted to say all of this, because I don't have anyone to say this to.

to give a background I'm currently in my first year of uni studying mental health nursing.

Hi there,

As a third year Primary Education student, I completely understand the feeling of being overwhelmed and stressed as a result of placement. It can be incredibly draining, particularly in first year when you have never done it before. However, I will say that it does get easier with time. I can remember spending hours working on just one lesson plan for school and wondering how on earth I would manage in upcoming years when I would have a greater work load. Now that I am in third year, I think back and am surprised at how well I adapted and how much more manageable everything became once I had grown in confidence and had more experience.

Congratulations of completing your first placement, and I wish you the best of luck with your presentation!
