On Tuesday Winter quarter starts. I am so very nervous! I’m taking two Arabic classes, even though I’m several months out of practice. I know the first few weeks will be like a crash course. I’m also TA-ing a course with a professor I haven’t even met. So many unknowns.
Mood-wise I’m doing okay. OCD-wise I’m not. My anxiety has been a little out of control, which is pretty normal for this time of year. Still, it has been hell worrying about every little thing under the sun.
I’m also worried about having an episode during this quarter. This time last year I had my worst ever manic episode.
Despite everything, I’m going to try to hang in there. I know I have better meds and better support than I did this time last year. I hope I can make it through the quarter without needing hospital.
Wish me luck!
