When I'm at school, I get very stressed, very easily. I am getting so stressed at the moment, as we are doing controlled assessments. I sit in these lessons getting so stressed, feeling myself getting right to the edge. I'm really worried that Im going to go over the edge and have a breakdown in the middle of a lesson. Listening to music normally calms me down, but I was trying that today, and I was so stressed it didnt work. Please help. :cry:

I wish I knew :( When I'm at school, I frequently grind my teeth together so hard I fear they might shatter! The best solution is to distract yourself from whatever is bothering you, but I know for an Aspie that can be difficult as we dislike background interference. If you have a friend, try talking to them about something else to get your mind off the problem. Think about your current interest or practice a language in your head. I count in Italian when I am stressed about something. If it really becomes unbearable, excuse yourself to the bathroom and then release all your emotion there! Provided no one else is there, of course.
Good luck - I completely understand your plight.

Get my mind to function on something else that I am not working on gets me to calm down.
