While many other parents who are nervous about their children's performance, I have to deal with a different kind of anxiety because of the school inefficiency. My son has a ADHD condition and the school has not been very efficient in getting the approvals in time with no assurance except a call last Friday (after calls to MOE) with a non-committal of "we submitted the application". Why then does it take so long to be approved when the Dr's report was already given since April? Till now, no response from the Principal.Read More »

TEACHERS WON’T LOSE JOBS IN MERGER, BUT WILL LIFE BE THE SAME FOR THEM?
While the MOE had said that no one would lose their jobs, imagine the anxiety of facing the uncertainty of where you are going to be deployed, of parting ways with most of the colleagues who had been in the same school with you for a long time, and the prospect of having an entirely new team of colleagues and students without ever having changed or requested for a change of job deployment. Some of the teachers might even have to teach at other levels, meaning they might have to trade JC teaching to secondary school modules. All these change of environment and possibly job description will just add to the anxiety levels of the teachers.Read More »
NSF: I’M GETTING DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY ATTACKS FROM ARMY
I have been in the army for a year and never once did I enjoy my time here other than enjoy doing everything with your friends. Recently I have been getting mood swings, I feel like a caged bird and honestly ,I'm sure everyone felt the same but they have been taking it with a suck thumb mentality. It is depressing seeing how easily people give up to power because they don't have a choice. I'm getting anxiety feeling trapped and I hide it from people. They say I looked depressed but what can I tell them? I feel muscles tensing every moment knowing I'm trapped. I hate that knowing I have another 11 months of being in a bunk, being trapped in the same camp.Read More »
CHC MEMBER: CHC TURNED ME AND MY MUM INTO PARANOIDS WITH ANXIETY DISORDER
When I tell my CG leader that I am stressed out, they can't do anything much and my mum tells them that I have anxiety issues, not realising that CHC and she coercing me to go are the cause of it. I even have a psychiatrist letter proving I have that condition. My mother however has it worse. Since attending CHC, she became very paranoid and very anxious. Anything that does not go her way smoothly, she will make the ridiculous claim that the Devil is acting against her, like having a minor car accident etc. Sometimes when she presses the wrong number on her mobile, she would blame the Devil for it. She keeps worrying about things and scolds me for being anxious when she in fact, is anxious herself!Read More »
