    its getting too much for me. I have too many underlying health problems that no one knows about other than my mum and its affecting my work and concentration. i have become insecure about my appearance, especially being overweight, and i feel powerless that i will never change. i'm barely eating one meal a day now and i think i've failed my exams. i feel unsuited for this subject in that no one will ever take me seriously. i feel like a joke, that my whole life is a joke.

    Forget exams. You can always try again when your mind isn't occupied by other issues. Life is not a joke but it can feel that way sometimes. I suffer from depression/anxiety but I know that the world has beauty as well as sickness. If you are worried about your weight, is it the medication you are on that is causing it? I'm stabbing in the dark here but what I do know is that you must talk about it. I have no idea where you live but if I were you, I'd go for a walk on the moor with a close friend. Until I (or anyone else) knows more about your problem, then I don't know what else to suggest.Remember, you only have one shot at life and life is very short.RSVP, [email protected] Take care.

    forget everyone else! Medicine is a highly regarded career, and if your determined you will make a brilliant doctor!
