The Question Club
TQC, I need help. I'm really behind in the semester (I have three 8-10 page research papers that are overdue) and my exam week starts Monday. The issue is that I've been super emotional, getting really irritated at my boyfriend for little things, getting depressed really easily, and crying at the drop of a hat. All I want to do is sleep, and I've been having a really tough time concentrating on my work, hence the back up of papers. One paper in particular is giving me a lot of trouble and I just got really upset over it a minute ago and I felt paralyzed, like I couldn't move or think, and I could barely breathe as I was trying to not burst into tears in the middle of the library. My boyfriend said it sounds like I had a panic attack, but I have no idea because I've never had one. I've already decided that tomorrow morning I'm going to set up an appointment with the counseling center on campus to talk to someone because it's gotten to the point where I can barely function.|
TL;DR I'm having emotional problems and can barely concentrate on my work. What is wrong with me, TQC?
I've never been diagnosed with any mental disorder, and I'm 20 years old. This started full-force a month ago, but I had this issue on a much smaller scale last semester over a huge, very involved research paper.
DK/DC: Will you post funny macros/gifs/pictures to make me feel better?
EDIT: Thanks everyone for your suggestions/pick-me-ups/support. I feel better now, and I will certainly talk to a counselor as soon as they can get me in there. =)
