  • Feel stressed and overwhelmed by the quantity or content of homework, tasks, assignments and projects.
  • Have powerful feelings of anger, defiance, frustration, rebellion and the sense that this is unfair.
  • Have intense school or work related anxiety, stress, fear or worry.
  • Often absentee yourself for headaches, flu, injuries and stomach bugs that you don’t really have.
  • Feel isolated, withdrawn and constantly tired at school or work.
  • Feel so trapped and powerless about school or work that you consider suicide or self-harm.
