I am a student attending a really small school (I mean small, less than 100 students). I am also about 2000 miles away from home. School is hard, to say the least. I feel lucky to be going to a school this small..but it does have it's curses too. My GPA is dead right now, I have pretty much completely failed the last two semesters due to crippling anxiety that stems from PTSD. School has always been extremely difficult for me and it's not seeming to get any better. I am in constant fear of failure and of my profs (who I am very close to and know me on a first name basis. Everyone of them. Even ones I don't have in class. I'm lucky.) This semester, which started on Wednesday, I am taking twelve credits. I am praying that my GPA will be okay this semester. I hope to go to grad school after I'm done and I don't think it will ever happen. I can't get a job as a counseler without a master's degree, and so school seems pretty hopeless as I am not going to be able to get where I want to be with my GPA in such bad shape.

I am starting meds next week, and just recently filed my IEP from high school with my college, which will get me special accommodations in the classroom-extensions on papers, taking tests outside of the classroom, ect. It's a unique situation because my school is so small and so one-on-one that my profs are very good at working with you-it's just a matter of being proactive about it (which I'm not very good at!)

Sorry for my horrendously long post!
