Managing Anxiety

Dear Freddy and Freida,


I am feeling a lot of stress and anxiety lately. My grades are dropping, I’m afraid to look at SchoolLoop, and even had a panic attack when my grade dropped 50%. It dropped because of  missing assignment but I really thought I turned everything in. I don’t know what to do…


Dear fellow Cougar,


It sounds like the panic attack was triggered by your grades. So, here are some ways to cope with panic attacks:

  • Breathe. I know it sounds silly, but slow, deep breaths can help relieve the tension. Focus on your breathing pattern - both inhalation and exhalation and try to even them out.

  • Sit down and close your eyes, or find a quiet place to go to.

  • Connect with your friends.


So, regarding your grades, don’t be afraid to talk to your teachers as well as sending emails. Talking in person can sometimes be more effective (during Break or Lunch, or after class, or even try to set up an appointment). And hey, if one assignment dropped your grade that much, maybe one assignment can bring it up that much too, right? Writing down assignments can be helpful too.


Don’t let this one thing discourage you - it is still fairly early in the semester, so don’t give up hope; talk to your teachers; remember to breathe; and keep doing your best.

Feeling Left Out?

Dear Freddy and Freida,


I feel totally left out here at EV. I am new to this area and don’t have any friends. I joined a club, but it only meets once a week at lunch, so what about the other days and times when I don’t feel like I fit in? Even in my classes I have a hard time. I feel like the students in my grade level made their friends in middle school, and because I came from a different area I don’t know where anybody.




Dear Help,


First off, you are not the only one who feels this way, especially at such a large school. Some ideas might be to move around during Lunch and talk to other groups of students, or, when you are doing group projects in your classes see if there is something you have in common with your classmates that you can share outside of class.


You said you were in one club, but are there other clubs here that you might be interested in joining? There are over 100 clubs on campus that share culture and religion, clubs that have a community service focus, but also fun and exciting clubs that do a lot of game and activities.


Keep your head up and remember there are others just like you that are waiting for someone to talk to them. It is hard to make the first move, but if you start talking to someone new, you might find you have a common interest that can grow into a friendship.


Freddy and Freida
