For the last 6 months or so I've been diagnosed by my doctor with severe depression and anxiety. Realistically, I've had these problems for far longer, but I was very scared about seeking help.
A few friends know about this but none of my family (I cannot explain my reasons for the depression and anxiety, for example one of them stems from being gay.)
At this stage I am having panic attacks daily, I'm dreadfully unhappy, I'm angry all the time, I hate myself so so much that I can barely concentrate. I'm now doing dreadfully in all of my A Levels (to put this in perspective at GCSE I got 8 A*'s and 3 A's.)
I am barely functioning and often have to leave the classes because I can feel a mental breakdown coming on.
I'm now considering telling my Sixth Form Office but I don't know how it will help and I'm lying to myself if I think it will make me better.
Has anyone had any experience telling the school about mental disorders? What was your experience? And how am I going to get A*A*A?
Any advice would be wonderful.
Depression and Anxiety, Do I Tell The School?!
