Depression getting worse from Nursing school...


I have very severe depression and it makes life much more difficult. In the beginning of the semester my depression was so severe I was having a lot of breakdowns. I also moved an hour away from home and in a whole different environment, which did it. My grandma died, I got cheated on, and my dog got a tumer.

I have to have a 78 to pass my Anatomy and Physiology class. I am at a 74.

I am so scared... My teacher is a doctor and very tough and takes 0 excuses.

Even when my depression was horrible and i need an extra day to study for the exam, she expected a doctor's note, and I do not have money for a doctor's appointment to get one..

If I could go back, I would have done so much better. I got a 93 on the lab practical, so I can do it, but just have HORRIBLE studying skills and time management. I wait until Sunday, one day before the test, to study almost every week.

And idk how to stop it.

I am so stressed from the week that I just push it off. I also cannot stop sleeping. I have no idea what is wrong with me, but I could sleep 3/4 of the day and all night if I could. Could there be something deeper wrong with me?

Should I make an appointment with my teacher as well as my educational support specialist?

I am so lost and scared... I guess it wouldn't be the end of the world to have to take it over next semester since my dream is to become a nurse and I am already accepted into the program. .

I could try this anatomy class again next semester, since I will know how to study better. Or I could just switch to medical assistant... Should I try Anatomy again next semester and see if I fail it and if not do RN, but if I fail it I am kicked out of the nursing program for 2 years...

What would you do..??
