Please don’t listen to them. S#@t happens, and for those of us with Schizophrenia when S#@t does happen it tends to hit the fan, spread around, and many of us reaches a breaking point that causes us to snap, slip into it and slide across the room. Okay, ewe bad picture just flashed in my head sorry.
I remember when I was going through University of Phoenix with Schizophrenia. I was having a hard time in one class (I don’t remember at the moment which one), I explained my situation to my guidance concealer and my teacher they were understanding. It wasn’t an exam but the end of class project and one student in our group had dropped out, another just quit participating in the group, and the third was of no help to the project and I was the only one working on it and worried it would affect my overall grade because it was supposed to be a “group” project.
My advice take a deep breath, relax…it’s not as bad as you think it is, and if you talk to your professor and explain your illness I’m sure they’d be willing to let you make up the exam, you might get points taken off for being late, but I’m sure you can get a rescheduling date. If not go to your councilor and see what options you have, there may be some you aren’t even aware of.
Sorry for the s bomb, didn’t know how else to say that.
