    I recently suffered a traumatic family event where I almost lost my mother and had to take care of my newborn sibling alone for three days (dad was with my mum). I thought I was fine until a bit later, now that we are finally home and I no longer have to suppress everything and take care of the baby alone it has all hit me and i've found myself becoming increasingly more and more depressed by the events.
    I'm in my last year of sixth form and have my mocks coming up in a week, yet I am extremely unprepared. I did not have time to revise before the babies birth and now I cannot make myself revise. I feel like I am going to fail, not meet my offer and everything is just getting too much

    any tips on how to get working again? or any advice in general?

    Thanks

    You'd need to talk to someone in person, and express your feelings - even talking about it can make you feel slightly better. Also, even if you fail your mocks, that isn't the end of the world, because they are not the real thing. Even if you do badly, there is still time before the real thing comes up.
