I’ve been feeling like a big failure lately. It’s like, I don’t have enough energy to do all of my homework and then the next week I’m worried that I won’t be able to finish it because I couldn’t finish it before and the cycle just repeats. And I’m technically failing 2 classes right now and it’s just really scary because I want to stay on track with my program (it’s 4 semesters and I’m in the 2nd semester now). It’s so frustrating because I can’t really talk to my teachers about everything because they can’t help me and I’ve talked to my mom and she always acts like I’m sabotaging myself and acts like I just need to buckle down and get it done because I’ve done it before. And I reached out to my primary care provider to help me find a therapist and she didn’t really set it up or anything she just said she can send a referral whenever I find a place. But it’s kinda hard to call anywhere to find a therapist when I’m super anxious! I wish someone in my life would just realize that I need help and actually help me. I’ve reached out to my doctor and my mom but I feel like nobody is realizing that I’m not doing well. Sorry for dumping everything I just feel kinda alone right now. Any advice or words of encouragement would be appreciated<3

      I’ve done the same exact thing and my mom has done the same exact thing. They don’t understand it’s a constant battle. I recommend finding something enjoyable in your studies or what purpose you have for your end goal. For example, I am wanting to do education but some of my classes are boring or overwhelming. I rethink why I’m here and what purpose they have (maybe none at all) but it’s credits and it’s one step closer to my degree. Take ONE day at a time and you’ll make it! That’s what I’m doing now!

      Mirroring with a YouTube video has helped me before, I’m going to try it again. Thank you both! I’m feeling more hopeful today.

      I've heard that mirroring can help, where you work with someone else also working near you, it can even be like a YouTube video, I'm not sure if it'd work for you (doesn't really work for me) but it could be worth trying!
