I would first like to say thank you to my support system of my family, friends and co-workers.
I’m greatful that I am in a graduate program especially for my major of speech language pathology.
I began my journey of becoming an speech languag pathology in January. I am also working as a SPED TA . I am doing my graduate school work virtually.
I have noticed that it’s hard for me to manage all of this at once. I noticed when I’m in school I feel like I’m drowning even though I’m only taking two classes and the stress of making a B- or better this a requirement for my major has taken a toll on me mentally. I love my major and the knowledge I am gaining. I just feel like I don’t belong in my major or at my university because it seems inaccessible but it I want that to be the reason why I make a difference.
These feeling of sadness, imposter syndrome and anxiety are scary for me because it’s all new to me as someone who loves learning.
I am hoping I am not alone in these feelings?
