My performance at school got worse and worse
I always used to get good grades, or even very good grades, at school. But I started finding it harder to learn and concentrate around the 10th grade. My performance plummeted. I couldn’t keep up and didn’t have a clue why. After school I did an apprenticeship, and everything went well again, no problems. Then I started studying and the problems returned. I could no longer cope with the demands of my life. It all got too much for me. At home too. I sometimes started crying for no reason, really sobbing violently. Looking back I’d say I had a lot of small nervous breakdowns. But I always managed to pick myself up after a while, and got my college degree in the end.
