Smoke some weed. That will help with the anxiety. Also, realise that there is more to life then good grades. They help sure but they are not the be all and end all. And life really begins after you finish school. Not during.
Marijuana doesn't help everyone with anxiety. Some people don't respond to it well and that's fine. I have severe anxiety attacks and I used to smoke weed, but more often than not, smoking made me have even worse panic attacks. It really depends on the person and how their body/mind reacts to the THC
Speak with your school's disability services. I've had the same thing happen to me before, and it ish totally not cool.
I deal with them too... -patpat- #4 is right. Your school has certain guidelines to follow under the ADA, and should be able to reasonably accommodate you. But no more missing classes, m'dear. See your doctor - more frequently, if necessary - and try to get it under control as best you can. Can't learn if you're not there.
I had the same problem, and I ended up going to therapy for it. Probably the best decision I've ever made. It's really hard to deal with, but it's definitely possible to get rid of the anxiety disorder. I haven't had a panic attack since I was in therapy, and I used to have them many times a day.
