I've just done my GCSEs and I'm going to be starting my first year of A-Levels in September. I have a summet job as a receptionist in a dental surgery and I work four days a week. I hope I can come back and work in the same place next summer and the summer after in order to pay for university.
Anyway. I think I have depression. I self harm occasionally, but usually it's only due to school stress. I also have a really bad relationship with food, and even though I don't have an actual eating disorder I'm worried that eventually it will become something worse.
I really want to see my GP or a therapist or someone, but I don't have any time. I'm working and then I'm volunteering on the weekends and when school starts again I'll be drowned in homework and revision, and I'll still be volunteering and I'm going to start my gold Duke of Edinburgh award and I go to martial arts on a Thursday night.
I've sort of talked about it with my mum, but she doesn't believe that something is wrong. I hope I'm not overreacting and making a big deal of something that isn't serious, but I still would like to talk to a therapist or something. I don't know what to do.
When can I get help?
