That’s thoughtful of you to send an email to your prof.  I don’t think you need to apologize to him though.  You’re paying for the class, and it’s your time and energy as well.  It sounds like there’s a lot going on for you.  I hope you’re getting the support and seeking help to get things under control.  Seasonal depression and anxiety are no joking matter.  I’ve dealt with them too.  Hugs!

I know how the feeling goes too dear! I think it was really responsible and kind of you to send your prof an email. I know that profs can get a little angry when they feel like students just don’t care at all. It’s not that you didn’t care about the class, it’s just that you could not do it this semester. My grades definitely plummeted this semester after my father passed, I could barely concentrate and the stuff I did turn in was sub-par, plus my finals sucked. Maybe in the future you could limit yourself in the fall and then really go hard in the spring? I took 15 credit hours this semester but in the spring I am taking 19. Just a thought. We are here for you!

Same situation basically, except all my classes are online. I thought of emailing my teachers (I failed 3/4 classes…I have never gotten below like a C, but I had same problems as you.) but like I don’t know them and only one ever tried to help me. But today I feel a lot better because it’s done. I failed and I can move on.

You sound exactly like me in undergrad.  I ended up getting on an anti-depressant and it completely turned my life around– last Fall I got a 4.0 in graduate school, compared to skipping class, laying in bed all day, etc etc in previous semesters. 

I’m sorry.  Take a deep breath and know it’s over and you don’t have to worry about it anymore.

hugs. it gets hard. All you can do is move foward now! I’m glad you have that looming fear of dread off your back now.
