I Am Failing 3 ClassesSchoolI Am Failing 3 Classes<div class="ExternalClass1ACE8D0530754BF89E5B42F9930FBB42"><p>​Hi, I'm overwhelmed by everything lately, I am failing 3 classes and about to lose a credit. Every time I try to help it, I become overwhelmed by it which lets my anxiety kick in and nothing gets done, I can't focus in class due to unmediated ADHD and my teachers don't listen to me when I try and explain this to them, it doesn't help that my dad is crazy about grades and he stresses out too. I've been stressed by family, school and some mental stuff I've cried more these past months than all of last school year and everything seems hopeless. I know that I need to study more and I know that ADHD isn't an excuse but that doesn't change the fact that I can not focus and I become so anxious and stressed and unmotivated I don't know what to do, and I don't know what I'd expect you to be able to do but it's 1:00 am and I'm desperate for anything. Thank you for taking your time to read this.<br></p></div><div class="ExternalClass85BA1B8D8CF94F05B22818458373E5B8"><p>Thanks so much for reaching out. It sounds like you have a lot on your plate right now. The pressure to do well, from yourself and from family, can be overwhelming. On top of that, you are struggling with your mental health which makes staying focused so much harder. </p><p>Failing class can feel like the end of the world. We want to reassure you. You will get through this. There are options, such as summer school and retaking classes, that can be a great way to try again. Have you thought about seeing a doctor regarding the adhd? It sounds like it is really causing some issues for you. When you get so overwhelmed, it can be hard to even know what to do next. Seeing a doctor and having them communicate with the school would be a wise idea. The school could provide you with an education plan which would allow you to receive accommodations.  <br></p><p>Also, have you thought about talking with your family about how you are feeling? Your father should know the type of pressure you are feeling right now. Holding it in and pretending to be okay is so difficult, and you deserve support. If you don't want to talk with your father, it would be a great idea to talk with the school counselor. They could help you with the mental health concerns and the academics. </p><p>Here are some links to consider. Be sure to practice a lot of self-care in the near future. <br></p><ul><li><a href="/JournalPages/Are-You-Stressed.pdf">Are You Stressed?</a></li><li><a href="/Pages/tip-teenage-stress.aspx?Topic=Stress">Stress</a></li><li><a href="/Pages/One-Step-At-A-Time.aspx?Topic=Stress">One Step At A Time</a></li><li><a href="/Pages/tip-how-to-talk-to-parents.aspx?Topic=Family">How To Talk To Your Parents</a></li></ul><p>Take care and remember- You got this!!<br></p><p>KC, Crisis counselor​<br></p></div>16
