    Hi @Redhead

    Sorry to read your going through a tough time at university. Have you spoken to anyone about it within your university? Most universities have support in place for students with learning disabilities. Have you tried looking at recording your lectures? 
    I really hope you find the support you need soon. Keep us updated here at The Mix we do care about you.

    Hey @Redhead

    How did your first day at uni go? I hope it went okay! Like @Abi said, we're always here anytime you want to talk about anything <3.
    Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤
