So this is my second semester of college and currently and one of my courses for my major is extremley difficult. Today in the lab version of the course the professor was really trying to get me to think about the concept but every time I try to answer any question the he may have I get so scared and nervous that I start to stutter and panic because I'm afraid if I answer it wrong he might get disappointed in me. Some of the questions I didn't get right he didn't get mad but by the tone of his voice it seemed like he got serious a little bit. I even told him I tend to struggle with topics similar to this in the beginning of the semester but I'm not quite sure he understands that much. Hes a good person and tends to give me extra time but I don't think he may be as patient as the other professors I had last semester.
Since I had a hard time understanding what he was trying to explain to me today I ended up with a little tears in my eyes but luckily I didn't show it to him so I ended up going to the bathroom and letting all my frustration out silently my eyes were bright red and watery. Luckily I was able to get it beneath me and when I came back I had a clear mind and was ready to do the work and I was able to make much more progress the second time then the first time.
Has anyone else experienced a professor getting serious with them or perhaps yell at them or the class? I think I made the right choice by running away to the bathroom and calming myself down before proceeding to the next tasks. If anyone here has gotten frustrated in a class or find a class difficult what were some things that you did to overcome it? Do you guys think I handled the situation better because I could have cried in front of the professor(which I didn't want to do at all ) so I went to the bathroom to calm myself down. I have also gone to tutoring center whcich seemed to help quite a bit I'm thinking I should go there more often. If anyone has similair experiences I would like to know thanks any advise is appreciated.
