In the last few months things had become a lot better. I finally felt like I was managing and coping with DP even though I still couldn't quite get out of it. But two weeks ago I had important Uni exams and I failed...two out of three of them. I studied A LOT, so it wasn't me being lazy. But because of DP I struggle to stay concentrated and my memory is completely fucked up as well. It feels like nothing I do is good enough right now! Next week I will re-do the exam that I have already failed a few times (yes I failed this shit more than once). And if I can't do this soon, it be completely over for me. I'm so fucking overwhelmed and anxious right now :(
HELP... I just need some words of encouragement...

Try not to focus so much on the fact that DP can affect your performance, because if you do, then it does so 10 times more. It gets you in this obsessive terrified loop that you won't be able to use all of your cognitive abilities in your exam because your mind is occupied with something else.

You can do it. But don't be hard on yourself. You freaking struggle already having this disorder right? You're in no ordinary position but you're doing you're best. That's good enough.

Don't let school stress you out. This was one of the big stressors in my life before I got DP. I spent an entire semester on edge because every Friday I had a 3 hour analytical chemistry lab to attend on only a few hours of sleep, with a giant report on it due the following Friday. If you can, you should take some time off of school and pursue stress free hobbies and interests. That's what I've been doing, and it really has helped me.
