Little warning to the socially awks people on TSR: it might not get better lol
I got 100% in loads of my school exams without working (as in, 50% attendance at school or something like that, little studying outside school,) while others worked and got 60-70% and scraped the As/Bs (mostly As though) needed for medical/dental school and went off there. Thing is, I had my psychiatric difficulties, which just looked like social awks, which only got worse at uni. Now I'm 22 and stuck at my parents' home, with a very weak hold on a maths degree, while my brother (one of the A/B scrapers, but a bright chap who didn't have psychiatric difficulties) is a fully qualified dentist.

I doubt this will happen to most others on here. I hope it doesn't anyway.
How do I deal with this?
Some people say I've dealt very well with the knocks life has given me.

It'll all work out in the end, this basically happened to me. Got 100% in some of my GCSE's without trying. A-Levels were harder, life events occurred, had a minor breakdown and eventually just scraped a degree. Still, managed to get a pretty good job in an interesting field. You just have to keep trying
