  • 2School is becoming a nightmare. Please help?

    I have a hearing problem it is significant and mainly keeps me from hearing human voices clearly. High and low noises are much louder and often painful. I also have severe tinnitus (buzzing and ringing in my ears) that is exacerbated by spending time in noisey environments. I am in my 30s and in beauty school at a public votech. My hearing loss is relatively new. When I started school in January, I discussed it with my instructor, but he seems not to understand. There are some girls in the class who my carpool partner says sit around and gossip about me right in front of me. They have been saying that I had a drug problem in my 20s but not to my face and they get away with this because I can't hear them doing it just inches away from me. They have spread this gossip to even my instructor and I think he believes it. It is so akward and I don't want to be the person always whining, so I've started to avoid class, even though I am paying out of pocket while everyone else is on federal grants that I don't qualify for. I am trying to get help w/ my hearing but it is a slow process going through the testing. I also have high blood pressure and my medication has recently had to be adjusted due b/c my bp is very high and it exacerbates my tinnitus and it with my tinnitus I get frequent headaches. These girls whisper and cackle and the loud laughing hurts my hears. I was out today and my teacher said to my car pool ride that he hopes I am dropping out. He is so unfair. My car pool friend was out the other day and he gave her credit for the entire day by clocking her in and out. I was out for a doctor's appointment that day and I didn't get any credit. He says that I have to get a doctor's note to come back to school. I made an appointment w/ the psychologist at my doctor's clinic tomorrow. I have social anxiety and a fear of going back to school now. I need her to help me deal with my depression and anxiety and fears and to write a note that will get these absences excused and get me back on track. I am not really behind in my school work, in fact I was rather upset that I sat in that class for the first 2 months but he didn't have anything for us to do b/c he did not yet have our texts or beauty kits. Please tell me what I need to do tomorrow in speaking w/ that counselor to get the help I need. Thanks!

  • 3Please help me analyze this nightmare I just woke up from!?

    My adult daughter and her two daughters and I move to a house that is in a semi- rural area . We went to different places and people we have beds for each of us. I seem to remember that the house otherwise decorated . I think we're good to go somewhere or are we supposed to get ready for bed. In any case , the house was full of people I do not know . I do not remember if it was going to be a party or what, but it had something to do with the plans of the previous owner ( in the dream I know this is an old lady , but I can not give this information in the dream ) had done before leave. My family seems to take all this in stride , but I'm angry ( IRL I have social anxiety and get nervous in crowds ) and start yelling at people to get out. I do this for what seems like a half hour more (I know , I know, sleep time ) , and then for some reason decided to take a shower . There are people all over the bathroom as well, including the bathtub ! After a lot of screaming (I'm not a screamer IRL ) I have finally cleaned the bathtub . I undress and go in and turn on the shower , but they are made ​​of 4-way I have to pull curtains , and meanwhile people are looking at me , even from the dining room , which is visible when a transparent wall ( window , really ) . It feels like I'm in peace for the shower in less than a minute , when people start getting in the bathtub fully clothed me. I scream and push to try them out . At one point a man enters the tub and says that since I'm naked anyway, he and I might have sex . He looks at me and says

  • 4I'm Stuck In The Past And I Need Help?

    I'm experiencing a bit of a depression, because of the fact that I'm getting older. I'm having a tough time leaving behind my childhood (which was the greatest time of my life), but now I am slowly being forced to trade the life I once knew for adulthood. I've been very Preoccupied with my past lately, and i just can't seem to let it go. I miss being in third grade the most, it reminds me of a simpler time, when life was so simple and so easy. I miss waiting for the next installment of my favorite video game franchise (which was, and still is "Tony Hawk's"). I still remember when "Tony Hawk's Underground" came out, it was 2004, and I was very excited to have bought the game (a game which I still play to this day). I also miss waiting for and watching the very much anticipated "Harry Potter" movies, which I would watch as they came out. But slowly, as the years went by, to my horror, things began to change. The "Tony Hawk's" game franchise eventually ended in 2007, all of the "Harry Potter" movies finally came out, and the people that I've know have changed, moved away, or have become very successful and have me behind. I remember being ten years old, and watching "Dragon Ball" and "Dragon Ball Z" on "Toonami" every afternoon after coming home from school. Everything has changed since I turned eighteen, and now the thing I fear most is getting older. Unfortunately for me, my 19th birthday is next month on the 30th, and I am dreading it! What Can I do? How can I slow things down? Why does everything have to happen so quickly?

  • 6Girlfriend's past and friends...?

    I lost my virginity to my girlfriend, but she has had sex before, and done stuff with another guy. At first it didn't really bother me but as I got closer and closer to her it started bothering me a lot, and it does. I mean, it's normal I feel like, and I really feel like I love her and eventually the sadness towards the past will go away.. But her friends always talk about her past, she hates it and I hate it but they do it all the time, constantly comparing me and always telling me stories about her first time or something like that.. Especially when she's not around. I already have major depressive disorder + situational depression because of stuff going on in my life + depersonalization disorder and it's extremely hard for me to deal with and I would really appreciate it if someone could give me some real advice because I can never think straight and I don't start therapy for a little over a month.. Real answers, please?
