The netizen shared that he/she would feel anxious in the new environment and feels demotivated and sluggish, breaking out in cold sweat and becoming breathless from panicking.

Here is the full story:

“Am I the only one who feels this way since starting university?

In the past year, I constantly feel anxious. Especially in new environment. On my first day of physical lessons, I found myself unable to sleep the night before.

Panic attack

Then when I reached campus and could not find my class, I was in cold sweat and found myself breathless from panicking.I cannot seem to focus.

I constantly study one module with my head thinking about another module that has an upcoming exam too. I end up toggling between subjects and lose my focus easily.

I also find myself very demotivated and sluggish. Despite putting in more effort this semester, I feel like I am everywhere.

Afraid of being a disappointment

A lot of things that used to bring joy to me no longer does. I no longer enjoy playing my mobile games. I no longer enjoy netflix/YouTube. I no longer enjoy sports. Because it feels like I don’t have the time.

Then there’s this constant fear of disappointing others. When I don’t do well, my first concern is disappointing my professors, my parents or others who have put effort in me. I don’t want them to feel sad because I didn’t do well.

I hope second half of sem 1 will be better. Hang in there everyone!”
