I think I've been suffering from anxiety. I couldn't make myself go to class today to take an exam. What can I do to alleviate the anxiety? Can I retake the test for medical reasons?
I'd advise you make an appointment as soon as possible with the Counseling Center to discuss what is going on for you and the counselor will decide if an excuse is warranted for missing the test. It is important that you be as clear as possible about the nature of your symptoms, what your history is with stress, what your family history is, whether you are self-medicating with alcohol or other drugs. These are really crucial to making a diagnosis and determining a treatment plan.
