'I'm dreading going back to uni after Christmas - should I drop out?'


I am sorry that you are finding the combination of pressurised academic study, being away from home, moving between placements and coping with the stress you are feeling too much. It's not for everyone so don't feel bad. If you like caring you may prefer to join a company like Barchester or BUPA nearer home and become a carer or senior carer? Life is too precious for regrets and stress. You are young and there is never only one way to proceed.
