I start college tomorrow, and I'm having some trouble. I have posted before that I have anxiety problems (a while ago actually), and I have made lots of progress but it plays a huge part in why I'm scared to go to college. Of course I have all the normal anxieties of college, I could deal with that if it was all it was. But I have anxieties on top of that, mostly things that are huge deals to me but would seem silly to other people. I have trouble in certain settings where there are a lot of people, high school was fine for me because it was a small school but college is completely different. It's also literally impossible for me to cross large roads which I will have to do to catch my bus home. I also have a real tough time with corridors, which there are plenty of at the college I'm going to. And those are just the major issues. Sure they seem minor to most people, but to someone like me, they're the most daunting things in the world. On top of all that, in my past experience, I just get left in the dust in a college environment. I took a college class in high school and never finished it because I couldn't handle getting lost so easily. And at my college orientation a few weeks ago I had no idea what the hell was going on. I'm thinking I'm not ready for college but my family won't here it. I suggested that I try again next year, maybe take classes in the mean time so I'm not thrown into the college environment all at once. Of course, on top of all this I don't even want to go to college. I think it's retarded how I need a stupid piece of paper for people to take me seriously. I'm very passionate about what I do, I'm probably just as good as someone with a college degree. But again, my family is bent on convincing me that I do want to go to college. I know that's a lot of crazy stuff going through my head but there you have it. I'm really frustrated and lost right now. PS: This is serious, not a part of my "Ghall Saga". I will ask the mods to delete any comments like "oh no not another one", or anything else non-constructive.
