Re: I am not coping at all

ok have you tried talking to your mentor about your troubles? they may be able to offer you some advice and support as well as some extra help with your assignment @Eden1717

 

thanks @Bree-RO@letitgo

Re: I am not coping at all

That seems pretty overwhelming @Eden1717. It's important to remember that you can only ever do your best. For now, how about we identify one of those assignments as more important, that you might try to make a bit of a start on?

I always tell myself that having a little bit to submit is better than having nothing at all!

Re: I am not coping at all

@Eden1717 are you able to stay safe?

 

We have all fallen behind at uni, at the end of the day you only need a pass. It's okay - just break it down into smaller segments, are you able to give that a go?

Re: I am not coping at all

@Eden1717 Hmm.. we are all hearing you for sure.. And the thoughts around SH are concerning because we really want you to stay safe..

The best thing you can do right now is phone a helpline or seek out an appopriate support. If you can do this you might go from feeling like a 10 (quite anxious) to feeling like a 5 (a little calmer, thinking clearly).

 

I am going to encourage you to phone either Lifeline 13 11 14 or SCBS 1300 659 467 or KHL  1800 55 1800.

 

Are you able to try that?
