See a doctor: Feeling suicidal makes this more urgent/emergent. Call a doctor. There are treatments for helping you cope with anxiety--both medications and therapy. For many, many people, school is a source of stress (as well as a pathway to a better life). There are many reasons why it is stressful, but being evaluated and graded, for those who are self-critical or insecure can be very challenging.

A 35-year-old member asked:

Please tell me what should I do when school is causing me high anxiety and suicidal tendencies?

Get help ASAP!: If you are feeling intensely anxious and suicidal, you need psychiatric and/or psychological help. If you're truly 35 you may be in college or grad school, and such help may be available at your school. If you're actually a minor, talk with your parents and ask them to help you get to a psychiatrist or psychologist for help. Do not act on any suicidal tendencies -- these are part of an illness!
A 54-year-old male asked:

What causes high anxiety in the morning?

Morning anxiety: Could be caused by many things. Guessing at what causes it in a specific person is not reasonable. Talk to a mental health professional to determine specific causes. The treatment for anxiety is pretty much the same no matter what time of day it occurs -- relaxation training, cognitive therapy & stress management, supplemented with medication if necessary.
