I had a meeting with Leone today about my walking out of our FaIF class last Friday. It was to catch up with homework I missed out on and to just chat about what's been going on with me lately.
I'm not going to splurge it all out on here, this may be a public blog but there are some things I can't really share, but she really helped. She listened, offered advice and is helping me with my classes now too.
I need to email her some bullet points on how to treat me in a classroom situation (no quickfire questions is one we decided during the meeting) and I need to email my presentation group to let them know that I have problems and may not be able to speak when it's time for us to present work but that I'm more than willing to work my arse off with research and such. Leone even said that if they're pissed at me for it then she'll step in and help me explain myself.
She is also going to speak to one of my other lecturers, Liz, to let her know what's going on with me and about the presentation thing (although I'm with my friends for that so I'm hoping they know I'm a bit nuts by now).
After a big cry when I got home, I feel ok about it and feel like I can cope a bit. Ben has been with me the rest of the afternoon/evening so that's taken my mind off things a lot.
I'm still pissed about Lush, but am coming to terms with it.
It's going to take a while and I by no means feel better, but at least I feel like I'm not alone. That's always a good start.
