It’s not fair. I wouldn’t say I am stupid. Nor am I diagnosed with a learning disability, though I do have ADHD. I struggle through college while everyone else seems to have their shit together. I am phenomenal at English and writing, however, I can’t seem to do the most basic college algebra, which is putting my whole attendance at a university at stake. I am having a mental breakdown right now and my friends are all together doing something without me somewhere else (we all live on campus). I wasn’t invited, even though my roommate/best friend and they all came into our room and just left with no explanation. Usually, I couldn’t give less of a fuck, but because its almost finals week it is eating away at me. I just took two Advil for the hell of it. If I had more than two pills left in that bottle I can guarantee you that I would have purposely overdosed. I’m done being a failure. I’m done being a fucking loser. I don’t know what to do from here.

  • Ok deep breaths, first of all do you have some sort of advisor assigned to you that you can go to and talk about all this? Or even just a tutor you feel you could talk to? Your uni will want to help you stay on track and do well and might be able to suggest some things to help or be able to point you in the direction of additional support for algebra/etc.

  • Listen to the commenter above. Go talk to your college counselor or to your advisor.

    This is not uncommon, this feeling and the experiences you are having. I had troubles with it myself, and I just graduated. (Many years later, but I did it.) Thank goodness I got the help I needed!
