So I had barely started working on my pre reqs to my pre reqs spring 2012 even though I felt old and out of place. Everything was going well except my anxiety would come around and I would try my best to control it. In the fall of 2012 I was seeing the school psychologist to help me handle it better. I ended up failing algebra which was stressful cause math is what I struggle with and by spring of this year I was feeling down and my anxiety was super high. All the classes I enrolled in were kind of easy but I couldn't control my anxiety and I ended up withdrawing my classes. Very depressing time as I am already 32 and it took a while to discover what I wanted to be when I grew up. I have my two boys who I want to be a role model too and I want to do what my heart desires. I came back to school but not at a cc this semester. I am taking my cna at an adult school and will go back to cc next semester. I just started taking meds on Saturday to help my panic attacks so I really hope it helps. So far so good just has me a little slow. Idk does anyone else struggle with anxiety? I just want to help people and stitch and care for wounds - totally gets my full attention my anxiety is gone when helping others.

I've battled anxiety, especially when it comes to major exams. I'm learning to...just breath, meditate. Speak and think positive thoughts to self. Prepare yourself in the area of subjects you have anxiety towards, don't run from them----------------->ATTACK them!!! Math WAS my fear too, but I said these exams and math ARE NOT BIGGER THAN MY GOD. He makes the impossible, POSSIBLE. Don't let this hinder your journey. Ive personally decided to stay away from reading post where "ppl aren't doing well in a course & have FEAR written all over it" or "have failed" etc. It'll only make you take on that energy. Stick w/ positive, uplifting posts...posts of success/motivation etc. I know what your feeling, I'm not telling you anything I'm not telling myself...have faith/believe.
