Scared to go back to university final year

Im really really panicking about going back to university for my final year, I've struggled with anxiety for a long time but recently I'm struggling to hide it as well. I'm really concerned about going back to university because I really don't think I can keep this up. I can't imagine doing anything other than university, there's nothing else I want to do but the thought of going back makes me panic and I want to go back but also really really don't
Any advice appreciated

@secondaccount123456,
Your school most likely has counseling services (the vast majority of them do). Go and talk to an impartial professional about this.

Talk to your family doctor about what is happening.

Your experience is just the complete opposite from mine. I was scared about my sophomore year, and really enjoyed my senior year by participating in student government and fraternity.

@secondaccount123456,
You should, as the others say, seek counseling. I get anxiety a lot, but it helps to at least talk through it and identify the source of the anxiety. You may not feel comfortable doing that here with strangers on the Internet, but you can trust a school therapist to keep your information confidential.

@cicerone imposter,
I am going to be running one of the societies at university this year as well as doing other work to help support new students and am just concerned that it's all too much when I already feel like I could be pushed over the edge any time now.

@Kolyo,
Really appreciate your advice, however I've never done counselling before and In person mask all of this (no one I know had any idea about it) and with my full timetable at uni I don't know how I'd manage to sneak there. I also think that why should I be offered anything special when everyone on my course has the same workload.

@secondaccount123456,
Never mind what anyone else is doing. They might all be getting counseling for all you know. They are not your concern. You are.

If you feel your plate is too full, then speak up! Practice saying no to things.

Dunno, just sorta shucked it off. Later in life employed a psych; maybe that helped, not sure. In any case, there's a good chance

@secondaccount123456,
It may be that those non-academic activities are too much for you.

You have to decide what you are going to focus on and what you can manage.

You can work with a faculty advisor on this , you can talk to a counsellor, you can talk to a family member but bottom line - you have to make some changes in how you are handling things.

@jespah,
I appreciate what you're saying and it's really helpful to hear, it is hard to say no to these extra roles because I want to help support, arrange opportunities and be there for these new students I want them to feel they can ask me anything and I'll do my best to be there for them. But after what you've said I will say no to any additional roles offered from now on because I can see that being a support mentor, running a society and having a full timetable will be a lot

@dalehileman,
Uni's the biggest thing in my life right now so I can't help but take it seriously or worry about it 😂
