I know people say stuff like this all the time but literally, I've been self harming for the last 4 years and recently stopped after exams and have started again. I am starting to think that this may mainly be due to the pressures of sixth form (and other things as well but sixth form literally pushes me over the edge). I feel guilty when I'm not revising. I feel guilty right now I can't be peaceful unless I'm putting 100 percent work in and am absolutely tired. I feel like I need to keep hurting myself to punish myself. I just feel so pathetically guilty that I can't be a perfect student. School is like the only part of my life that I can control and be decent at. And what doesn't help is that I'm applying for medicine next year and I seriously don't know if I will literally be able to survive this year and the course if I even get in. The fact that my dad won't be happy unless I do medicine isn't helping either. I tried telling him that I'm having a hard time and he shouted at me for being dramatic (I know I'm being dramatic but yeah :') ) Anyway, sorry for rambling but does anyone know how I can stop being/ feeling so crazy?
Thank you x

It sounds like you could really do with talking to someone about this. Do you have a counselor at your school? Or if not then you could go to your GP about it (I know that's a daunting prospect but it's the route to getting some specialist support). It's a common thing to try and control one thing absolutely (in your case school & doing well) when everything else in your life feels out of control. Talking to someone might help work out what's causing it, or ways to cope with how you're feeling.
