I'm ready to quit....1st Soci test 50%
.... diagnostic math (not graded) test 10%.... math quiz(graded) 60%
I'm so defeated righ now

I'm a SAHM of 3 kids, my DH is AD Army. I'm 33 & it's been a long time since I've been in school!
I'm freaking out!!!
I'm already wanting to back out and hide under my covers.
I see my therapist Friday and just wish he could walk me to class and coach me through it.
Damn it

When do you start school?  Talking to your therapist should help.  HUGS

 youre gonna find out its not that hard afterall. just get to your class and you will see other people who are probably feeling the same thing. im sure you will feel comfortable after you come out of your class. it just takes that one giant step. you can do it. best of luck to you.

Focus on the good about going to school. I know it's tough but if you dwell on the things that make you nervous you might back out. I know I was always like that with new classes. Have you thought about taking online classes or anything?

I can't focus with online classes...
My psych thinks I might have ADD...

Yeah I know what you mean. Just take it one day at a time, hun. You can do anything if you just focus on the end result.

Why do you think you are having anxiety about returning to school?

Becaue it's been so long... My kids are so young and I have to do everything for them and my husband. I was never a "great" student and I have issues with focus, I understand the importance of an education but I'm so nervous of failure.
