Joe is a senior – it’s his final semester at Wesleyan. He took a light course load so he’d have time to work on his senior essay, and also to spend time with his friends before many of them head off in different directions this coming summer. He has an ideal living situation – a comfortable house, with three close friends. He thought he’d be having a great time, but instead he’s feeling stressed and anxious. Recently he’s been having trouble falling asleep at night, and sometimes wakens early. He’s not feeling rested, and has been begun procrastinating working on his essay, which then causes more anxiety. Post-graduation pressures are also nagging at him. After completing his resume, he had planned to return to the CRC to do some serious job searching, but he seems to be avoiding that also. He’s beginning to feel depressed about the rut that he’s fallen into, but can’t seem to pull himself out of it. His advisor is concerned about him, and suggested that he make an appointment at OBHS. Joe was skeptical about that idea– after all, there’s nothing really seriously wrong, and he thinks he should be able to get himself back on track. But it just isn’t happening.
Don’t hesitate, Joe. And don’t worry that your problems aren’t “serious” enough. Call OBHS to set up an appointment for a consultation. We’re here to provide support, and will work with you to figure out what’s going on emotionally, and how to begin to address it. No problem is too big or too mundane. The sooner you make the call, the sooner you’re likely to feel better. And then you can get back to enjoying your remaining time at Wesleyan!
