Seeking Help to Plan Ahead

Preparing for my supplementary exam has left me woolly headed. I haven’t been able to shake the sense that I’ve failed myself, and that’s made it difficult to study and to think about my plans for next year. I’ve been giving serious thought to withdrawing from my degree, but I don’t know if that’s because […]

When Things go from Bad to Worse, Get Help

It’s been another rough week. Mum’s finally home from the hospital, which is a huge relief, but she needs a lot of help and Dad isn’t coping. For a while there, he was so focused on whether or not Mum was going to be okay, I don’t think he gave much thought to what it […]

When Things Go Wrong

I jinxed myself when I wrote that this semester was off to a flying start. What I wouldn’t give to rewind back to when my biggest worry was whether or not I’d manage to get my readings done before my tutes! I know none of what’s happened in the past week is my fault, but […]

Finding Out You’re the Third Wheel…

Mystery solved! I finally got to the bottom of why Ewe-nice and Ramsey have been acting so strangely since the end of exams. It turns out they’re dating! Ewe-nice spilled the beans at the movies last week, and I was gob smacked. I guess, in hindsight, I should have seen it coming? They were always […]

Assignment Stress is Building…

This year hasn’t quite shaped up how I imagined. I’m still a little freaked out about dropping a subject and having to make up the credits further down the track. It was never part of the game plan, and I feel as though I’m falling behind the flock. No one else seems to struggle with […]

Quick thinking fix – for when you know you are being negative and need to move on

Ok, so maybe you’re aware of the same negative thoughts recurring, seemingly daily. Maybe you’re predicting failure, or worrying a relationship will not work out or imagining a doomed future. These are in fact common thinking scenarios and the bigger problem is we tend to carry these thoughts around and play them over and over […]

Confronting a Friend

Guys, I’m worried about my friend, Ewe-nice. We caught up for coffee on Thursday and I told her that I found it hurtful when she threw out the work I did for our group assignment. It was a difficult conversation to have. I hate confrontation and Brainy kept me up most of the night before […]

Future worry – is this a useful realistic strategy or wasted time ?

I often find people struggling with worry about the future.  In fact often they will try to convince me that this is not only very real but a productive and useful life strategy.  Typically the arguments will include the idea that in worrying about the future they will accurately predict every up-coming event and be prepared and rehearsed when the inevitable happens.

Time to Switch Courses?

We have until Wednesday, 31 August, to withdraw from courses without failing, but only until this Monday, 8 August, to enrol in course online. […]
