Default I'm going to fail my exam tomorrow

I tried to study I really did and I tried hard too but I forgot most of this stuff!! and the exam is tomorrow, I don't know what to do, I really cant fail this exam. If I do, no financial aid, no financial aid = no school. This is yet another factor adding up to my stress keeping me from sleeping

hey there!

You post is a perfect example of catastrophising (excuse spelling) - and given the circumstances it must be hard not to.

for now- just concentrate on doing your best. You gain nothing but lack of sleep and concentration by worrying about the outcomes now. Try making a few flash cards or getting creative and that way it might stay in your head a bit better :)

User,

I've been in the exact same position you are at right now. And to be honest, it's not as bad as you might think. (Also a C is not bad at all!!).

I failed to meet my financial aid requirements the previous year, and any time this happens you are able to send in an application to renew your financial aid. Basically you send in a letter explaining what happened (why you failed to meet requirements) and the school financial staff will review it and will most often than not, allow you to keep your financial aid if you meet certain requirements: taking a certain # of classes, obtaining no less than a C in that semester, etc..

I might even have to go through this process again.. seeing how my current physics class is going... but, even like my adviser told me, the point is just getting through it; once you get out you can choose what you want to do and get some time to breathe.

Also, I would recommend therapy/medication to help you with any problems that might be affecting your work. I feel a bit more in control of my work while taking my antidepressants, and I have a lot more confidence in general. I haven't been to my therapist in a while but it has been a slow process; I know that will take me a while. But you got to just roll with the punches and believe that things will work out in the end, one way or another..

I would like to, but, no. I can't tell anyone, I don't know, it's hard to explain but I've never told anyone about depression and stuff for years, most of my life its been a secret and I prefer it remains that way

If you fail to meet your financial aid requirements for the year they will most likely either send you an email, if you have a university email, and possibly send you the same thing via mail.

You just go to your financial adviser and talk with him/her if you have any questions and he/she will try to help you out.

To write the appeal if you fail to meet requirements, you just send in a letter explaining why you did poorly in that semester/year and then just bring it in an envelope addressed to your advising office and adviser.

I know exactly how you feel. I was actually the same exact way... I kept my depression a secret for such a long time, although I realize now that I wasn't really fooling anyone; my family and friends could see that I was depressed. My parents actually thought my ex boyfriend raped me and assumed that was why I was so depressed.

In reality, I realize that they really just wanted to help me. Yes, it's scary opening up to people about it, but it's kind of like jumping into a cold pool. Once you jump in you finally get used to it; and it helps a lot, in my opinion that I can somewhat vent more openly about how I'm feeling.

After I told my family I got a doctors appointment; I actually burst into tears when I first met her and was explaining my situation. And right now I'm on 100mg of Sertraline a day and 100mg of Wellbutrin a day; I know it's not a miracle worker, since most of my problems require therapy for, but I can tell they definitely have helped in some aspects; I never feel as suicidal as I used to, and I have a lot more confidence in social situations, and just overall.

My doc told me to look into a therapist, which I did. And I have been on and off going to see him. It takes a lot out of me because I don't like talking about myself, but once you find the right therapist for you it becomes easier. The first session my therapist did ALL the talking, which I was grateful for. I still get nervous, but I will do what it takes to get better..
