Through GCSEs I was positive, committed and happy. Sixth form hit me hard and I've struggled like hell. I had to quit sport completely because of injury and became depressed. I'm coming out of depression now as I'm slowly getting back into exercising however I still find it impossible to revise.

I want to revise, I enjoy my subjects and I know what I need to do. I just can't do it. I would just lie in bed and stare into space for hours. When I think about starting my revision I seriously panic.
How do I get out of this and become my old self

Concentrate on doing things that make you happy. I felt the same through my a levels and in class I was going really well in terms of understanding things but I couldn't get a word down on paper and I couldn't revise or make notes which meant I did crap in exams and that got me really depressed. Turned out I have a learning disability and it wasn't my fault.

So I changed subjects and did things than made me happy and weren't as academic. Go back to sport and go the gym regularly or go on runs. That helped me a lot in terms of managing my depression and it increases endorphins in your system to get "the runners high" as we call it. You do start to feel better.

Talk to your teachers and learner support maybe your gp if you're confident enough to go see them, they can really help you.

The important thing is your mental health, concentrate on fixing that. It's a priority. Let your education take a back seat because honestly depression is more hell than doing bad in your education which you can fix a lot more easily than your depression.
