    my depression is similar, and recently it got very bad, i applied for EC and see my gp every week. in my gp's letter, she wrote that ive never been depressed before, i was very withdrawn, and that im unfit to work etc

    im just worried my ec form wont get accepted. what are my chances? have you applied for it before? how did it go?
    Well I've only applied straight for an interruption this year. I found people in my department very understanding though and my interruption got accepted very easily (the lady I talked to pretty much suggested it herself and it's her permission I needed). This shouldn't be a new situation to your university, it happens a lot. If your gp says that you are unfit to work then hopefully they should accept that, though I guess you could ask someone at your uni for opinion if you are worried.

    I've only applied for EC on basis of physical illness, but it pretty much also consisted of a "unfit to work" letter. Whatever the reason, universities should probably trust the doctor's opinion when they say a person is unwell.

    thank you for replying

    and i hope so, im just really worried now. alot of people are reassuring me that it will be fine, but its causing me so much stress and thinking of it being rejected is making me anxious

    i hope youre well now x
