    Hello all! i'm new to this site so i'm terribly sorry if i post something i shouldn't! I'm 18 and currently in my last year of college (i had to resit my AS year due to horrible sixth form experience) and i suffer from anorexia with bulimic tendencies, anxiety and possible depression and near exams i find myself getting more stressed out, my behaviours from each get worse and the motivation to revise dwindles which leaves me with terrible grades and for a while afterwards i have to focus so much of my time and effort on getting back to 'normal'. i was wondering if anybody has any tips to keep my disorders under control while stressed or any general tips for revision? Thank you so much in advance!!

    Lots of planning ahead, prioritising what's most important and realising that not doing so great in an exam isn't the end of the world is what's helped me in the past. Basically just the same advice as for people without mental health issues, only I think being organised is especially important in order to not get too stressed out.
