Counsellor in training.
I knew it was going to be hard. But damn. I have been skipping classess, I haven’t been able to gain a practicum placement, due to having epilepsy (have to be medically certified, which is totally understandable), which means I fail that paper. but after the 6 week break we had. I haven’t been the same person. I’m dull. I have no motivation. I have no drive. I feel burnt out. Feels like the rope around my neck is getting tighter and tighter. Fight or flight mode really. I need to get assessments done. So that’s all I really focus on anymore. I want to talk to someone, but no one has time and I don’t want to be that moaning person.
Overall; I want to help people but my tank is empty right now. And I don’t want to fail my degree because I wasn’t strong enough to push through like I should be doing. #Depression #Anxiety #University #Anxiety #Stress

How do you combat stress?
I'M feeling #anxious for my outting ⚘Tomorrow . I 'm Not even looking forward to it. I don't even wanna go. I'M hoping to get two people i really enjoy being around. I just wanna get the day over and done with and it hasn't even started yet. This is the thing when something starts out being a postive and fun thing. Can quickly turn to be an negative ugly thing. I feel like that 5 year old not wanting to go to school (Sorry to keep venting of this)#TheMighty #MightyTogether #Stress #MentalHealth #Depression I feel like with the one worker i'll end up broke. lol
Is your phone stressing you out?
Motivational Monday: With Courage And The Best That You Have To Give
I am entering a block of time where my depression has raised its head again. Always in such an inconvenient time. University stress is such a huge trigger point too. Get so caught up in the stress and anxiety of completing assessments, that my mental health just takes a deep dive down struggle street into Crap Town! Then i take sick days off work (my boss probably hates me now honestly) and i feel like im going to fail my classes because my mental state isnt in the right place to tune into that part of my brain to write essays and complete the important uni work.
I am quite shy and very nervous about asking this; So.. this happened today. It’s been 13years since I had an accident. At that time, I was going through a stressful time. I felt the same feelings I felt then. Shame and self loathing were the most that I felt. I don’t think I dealt with it properly 13 years ago, and safe to say I did quite worse this morning. Has anyone experienced this, and do they have any tips on dealing with this?
