My daughter is 19 and in the middle of her junior year at the university, and she has surely had her fair share of frustration and struggles. There were times, especially during her freshman year that she wanted to toss in the towel and call it quits.... but then she realized, thankfully, that life would be even harder for her in the long run if she did that. We always just remind her that she just has to push forward for the 6 years (thats how long her schooling will be) and then that part will be over and she can 'live life' a little bit easier, or at least breath easier without the stress of midterms and finals, reports and projects.

She also has done as Nettio, up above, has mentioned... she goes to see her professors and/or their assistants. She has realized that even just a few minutes of one-on-one time getting some extra help has helped her tremendously. At her school they also have like a tutoring hall where you can go in there, for any subject, any time of the working day, and get assistance. She has learned this has helped as well because those 'kids' have been through what she has/is and have been able to give her some guidance and advice. She's made many friendships this way as well.

Hang in there, don't give up...remind yourself that it's hard, but it's even harder without an education. Push forward and ask for help when needed. You can do it, just keep your head on straight and stay focused :-)
