Common Questions and Answers about Anxious about college

anxiety

Avatar n tn I feel anxious and nervous around big crowds. People often tell me that i look like im lost or confused...What is wrong with me??
Avatar f tn I am a bit of a worrier by nature and I have been consumed with fear and paranoia about having sex(even w a condom ,oral def out of the question) with anyone new after my last boyfriend for fear of STDS. My doctor has made me extremely paranoid about stds, which is only magnified by my anxiety issues. I am worried mostly about herpes because it is something my doctor brought up to me recently, and honestly, something I'd never given much thought to before.

Avatar n tn I have nothing more to add except to highlight what he has said..this is not about making a real choice, this about being anxious and eager to perform in order to mollify your self doubts..that's where a counselor can help.
353766 tn?1258827332 I'm going to attempt a full course load this spring semester and I finish my treatment about a month into classes. I'm pretty anxious about this as I feel that the tx really messes with my concentration and my ceramics classes and responsibilities are pretty strenous. I definitely feel some social anxiety as well but these two past semesters I've been taking it easy with 1-2 classes and I'm really getting bored.
1284022 tn?1291362149 Well, I got into some trouble with alcohol. Since freshman year of college (I'm now a junior) I had been getting drunk 3-4 times a week, usually drinking anywhere from 7-25 drinks in a night (I'm a big guy). Once I turned 21, as the oldest of my friends, it became easier to get enough alcohol to black out or get crazy. It seemed like the more we drank, the better the night was, and we were all doing it so it couldn't be a problem.
Avatar f tn I never had anxiety until I started college. It's like I'm constantly stressed out. I work full time and also have a teenager. Sometime I feel like I shouldnt be stressed but I always feel overwhelmed. Has anyone else had this happen? I'm hoping it goes away I'm almost done with school YAY!
Avatar f tn Anyone who goes to uni (also known as college) with anxiety? I do! On a regular basis. Some days im fine some days in uber anxious..!! Would like to hear from people in a similar situation. Thanks!
Avatar m tn , but when I smoke I start thinking about it more and get anxious. Anxious enough to post on a forum like this (haha). I've tried to watch gay porn to see if it does anything for me, and I can't even get slightly aroused. I've even tried "warming up" beforehand and I still just end up loosing it. Although recently I've been having trouble getting aroused by anything, so it could just be that I'm over-thinking it and stopping myself from getting aroused.
Avatar n tn When I started the year this year, I felt extremely anxious and stressed about the thoughts of writing my essays, or having to write any essays for college generally. When I'm in my tutorials, I feel there are people so much more intelligent than me, and I find it impossible to give my own opinion about something because I think it will be wrong or sound stupid. I'm also terrified of writing ny opinions on the college forumsfor other students to view.
Avatar m tn and a college student with a good gpa, a bright future ahead, a beautiful loving girlfriend, and a great family. I am religious and consider my self attractive at 6 fr. 4 with an athletic build at 205 pounds. I got a scholarship in another country. It all sounds sweet right...well it is...but it isnt. I made the mistake about 4 months ago by getting intoxicated and having sex with a stripper. That was the worst mistake I have ever done in my life.
5739095 tn?1374694266 I wanted to go back this fall but my due date is too close to finals so just to be on the save side I'm going to wait until spring semester and keep going from there.

Avatar n tn In my past I have had several unprotected sexual encounters with different men. The last one was about 3 years ago. To my knowledge none of these guys have been with other men, injected drugs, or have been diagnosed with HIV. For 2 years now I have been in a committed relationship and recently the stupid sexual decisions of my past have begun to haunt me. I have been on the internet for the past week scaring myself half to death and decided yesterday to go and get tested.
Avatar n tn My grandfather just recently passed away, and death has been on my mind. I am very anxious about being tested and am very worried that I contracted it, even though I know my chances are VERY low. I discussed this with my ex and he reassured me he has been tested and is negative. He claims he got tested one month after his unprotected experience (therefore, he was tested in April), and it came back negative. After that test, he always had protected sex until me.
Avatar n tn I was young and naive back in college and had unprotected vaginal sex with approximately 6 or 7 girls. Never had any "one night stands" and never any sex with prostitutes. This was all between 9 and 13 years ago. I've been with my wife now for 5 years and have always been faithful. I've been a healthy person as well, rarely seeing my family doctor unless absolutely necessary. However, since mid-November I've started to feel "off".
1718784 tn?1330738322 I am extremely anxious about seeing everyone. I'm not sure I will even manage, I'm just not sure if I can face it yet. I have been having very high anxiety this week. Just feeling a bit...meh.
Avatar m tn Because by your own admission, you are worried about it and testing is a powerful/definitive way to prove that you are not infected, as is very, very likely to be the risk. If you are truly anxious about whether or not you got HIV from this encounter, for me to provide statistics will not keep you from anxiously worrying that you will be "the one" out of ------ who gets/got infected. The tests are very reliable. I suggest you get one.
Avatar m tn Yes, I have known oral sex is not a meaningful risk, but what about my concern about those rare subtype/groups ? Where in HK or USA can I get tested for them?
Avatar n tn Since this incident, we broke up for unrelated reasons. I have been very anxious about this event to the point where all I do is think of the possibility I have HIV. I have talked to him about it, and he told me that about a month after his last unprotected incident he was tested and was negative--he "swears he's clean". Since this talk, he cut all communications with me, maybe because of my neurotic behavior.

Avatar f tn Jn the case she was positive what are the chances that anything was transmitted through only about 3 minutes of totally protected no breaks in condom vaginal intercourse and then about 10 minutes but no condom oral sex and a little fingering (no open sores on my penis , maybe a scratch on my finger but not a big one and it would have been scabbed) . Just trying to ease my mind a little, the better part of me already knows I should be okay.
Avatar m tn if so what is there to worry about? I'm also willing to bet the girl was joking... What girl is going to come out and say that and risk her reputation at the highschool/college level? If it makes you feel better get tested again.
Avatar f tn At 23 you are an adult and you do not have to allow anyone into your life who is not respectful, loving or supportive. You've been through enough negative crap. This is about you now. This is about your life. Take total charge of it.
Avatar m tn Hello, I am a male that had unprotected vaginal sex with a 20 year old caucasian american college woman 40 days ago. I was traveling Europe and in a drunk night stumbled into bed with her. Only time this happened. Condom was out of wrapper, so it must have slipped off. Sad. Her status to me is "Unknown." I contacted her afterwards, she says she tested negative 2 weeks prior to our encounter and 3 weeks after the encounter through Rapid Tests.
Avatar f tn I'm about 5-7 wks pregnant! I'm 19 and my parents don't know I'm pregnant! I've been feeling very anxious! My heart beats fast and I'm paranoid that they can tell I'm pregnant! What should I do to calm down?
Avatar m tn Putting things in perspective, as Mistakeguy789 has done for me, I know my symptoms are very minor as compared to what could have been without protection. I should not be anxious about HIV or herpes. But my anxiety has not abated and I do not think it will until I become symptom free.
