    Feeling super disconnected and isolated - Feeling a lack of support academically

    Hi all. I've been feeling a lack of support academically; lately, it feels like any support I reach out for or ask for gets turned down or professors are trying to make my life harder. I had a family emergency recently that's been affecting me for the past 2 weeks. I can't take a leave of...

    Anyone else have trouble with auditions / interview situations?

    Interviews are less of an issue for me than auditions or try outs for school organizations. I tend to nail interviews and do very well in the professional field, but when I'm being evaluated by my peers (especially student-run organizations), it is more stressful. Love feedback! I already...

    Anyone else have trouble with auditions / interview situations?

    I tried out for this organization on campus that I've been thinking about joining for over 6 months, and I tried my best considering how hectic the week was, but I didn't get in. The whole process felt very rushed and I was definitely emotionally drained after it. Good context to note is that I...

    Starting to feel like myself again!

    Just wanted to share what I've been up to! Went through a breakup in April, which wasn't that bad until the person cut me off completely (still confused as to why and my family and friends are also bewildered, lol). I had a lot of trouble with motivation throughout the summer and ended up...

    Trouble discussing family with friends

    At the moment, I'm living with her for the summer break, but I plan to switch my permanent address to my college; a little worried that it won't work out since it's unknown territory for me. I also depend on her for general questions that relate to finances and getting stuff done. She also does...

    Trouble discussing family with friends

    Very true! Your were responses were so clear and thorough... thank you for that! How would you deal with peers asking the same questions? I'm on a full ride so my "job" is my college education, and I often feel like college blurs the boundaries a bit with roles such as friend, acquaintance...

    Trouble discussing family with friends

    Good point! Not used to that as I grew up in an environment with no boundaries. I always forget it's an option. Mainly that they would think my parent is a terrible person. I feel less worried about people thinking of me as a victim or in the wrong. This probably has to do with the fact that...

    Trouble discussing family with friends

    Does anyone else struggle with discussing their own family with their friends and colleagues? Even questions about what they do or the nature of my relationship with my parent (whether we're close, etc.) I know it would probably appear odd if I just flat out didn't answer the question, or just...

    Sufferer Hi, I'm Nancy.

    Thanks for all the info! All solid guidelines to follow. Yup! I was misdiagnosed with ADHD first. I don't think you sound patronizing. To clarify, I phrased it as misdiagnosed since that's what my T said. Both the person doing my neuropsych and my current therapist said that the likelihood I...

    Sufferer Hi, I'm Nancy.

    Good point. I have a lot of online friendships, but the friends I want to go to support are a couple of college friends. We've only been friends for about 6-8 months, so not a super long time. We tend to talk about our relationships or the tough classes we're taking. We've talked before about...

    Sufferer Hi, I'm Nancy.

    Thanks! I'm surprised to hear that! That makes sense, but how does one even get started on finding out what support looks like and what to tell friends?

    Sufferer Hi, I'm Nancy.

    Hi all. I've been a bit of a lurker for a while. My name's Nancy and I'm originally from the south and moved to Boston for school. I'm planning on going to medical school but I don't major in the typical chem or bio. I'm super interested in philosophy. I received my PTSD diagnosis my sophomore...
