Thanks for sharing your story here on the forum 🙂 I really get the sense of how your life is feeling completely absorbed and overwhelmed by school right now. You’re dedicating so much time to your studies and I really hear how exhausting that is. It’s leaving you with no energy, it sounds like, to enjoy other things going on in your life. I’m guessing it might be a little frustrating to see your friends make time to relax and enjoy themselves while you’re worried that if you do that you won’t be able to keep your grades up. I imagine that frustration might be made a little worse by seeing them get grades higher than yours despite how much time you’re putting in.
I imagine that sense of overwhelm doesn’t seem like it’s going anywhere either with university coming up soon. I can understand why you would be worried of what life will look like when you start university and how you will manage all this stress then. Congratulations on getting into university, with all this hard work you’re putting in I imagine school and grades are really important to you! Sometimes when things are so important they can feel even more stressful.
