I recently dropped AS levels due to bad mental health watch

    I've been looking try through the Internet and I can't really find anyone in my situation - I'm sure I'm not alone but I thought I'd post this anyway.
    Late January I had to leave my AS levels due to 3 bad mental illnesses - GAD, Depression and Bulimia.
    I literally feel like such a failure. But I'm wondering on what to do next. I'm thinking of going back to college in September as I'm seeing a private Psychiatrist and also having separate CBT and medication has been discussed and is still on the table. I'm going to get a job when my therapists feel I am well enough for it. Then I have all of summer to recuperate, but I still feel like an outcast in this situation. I have no friends whatsoever, and am spending most of my days looking after my little sisters and trying not to freak out at my lack of social life and education. I got As and Bs at GCSE so thats not a limiting not factor.
    But what if college triggers it all over again? I sort of need reassurance that I'm not a complete nutcase and that other people are going through similar things.
    PS - I literally only made an account to post this so I apologise if I've posted it on the wrong sector or I've got this wrong in any way!

    you will be fine, just relax youll make real friends soon enough. Could you volunteer in a charity shop or somewhere where there is interaction with people just so you can build your confidence in a safe and comfortable environment.
