Pre-College Anxiety / nervous about going
Hello, I am set to move into my dorm in a couple of days. I am having some bad panic attacks and anxiety over starting college. I'm worried about going, how I'll do academically, if I picked the wrong school, and overall, how it will be. I don't know if I'm just stressed about the unknown. This school is about 45-60 minutes away from my house so I will have the opportunity to go home on the weekends. Anyone have any advice for coping with this stress and anxiety? Is this normal?7 replies
