Question: I’m 18, and while the past 18 months of schools were hard, I did fairly well in my Leaving Cert. I didn’t get my first choice, but I’ve just started college and am happy and excited about the course.
I had to move away from home, though, and that’s not been easy. For the past several weeks I’ve been feeling extremely anxious, and I don’t know why. I’ve started to obsess about my health; not only about me but how I could affect others. I’ve started to worry a lot – about stupid things, like a mouth ulcer or a cold sore or anything else that I notice about me.
