Overwhelmed

(you won’t feel this way if you read Top Ten Tips, we promise!)

Parental preparation (for transition) was very poor. In Year 11 we were advised at attend an expo but we didn’t know very much about it. 

 

I came out feeling so overwhelmed, distressed and confused. We had no background on what it was about. There’s nowhere that explains the process.  

 

I felt like everyone was trying to sell us something but we didn’t even know what we were supposed to be buying.
