Stress from school
It takes me longer than most people to study for my classes. I have a difficult time taking tests because I freak out and either double guess myself or forget information as soon as the test is put in front of me.
I'm beginning to question whether I have a disability because certain subjects I don't process very well. People say I'm smart but my academic performance makes me feel stupid at times.
I know that I'm good at applying knowledge to my life once I understand it but certain subjects I know I don't understand the information but I don't know what I don't understand.
In the process of trying to make my assignments perfect, I sometimes do the opposite. I don't know what to tell myself about my academic performance, it frustrates me.
I have a 2.71 college gpa but I've convinced myself that anything below a C is bad. I have to spend twice to 4 times the amount of time studying as one of my brothers.
When I took Chemistry, I studied for 4 or more hours after each class and got a D.
