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!
This is how Oxbridge students do it.
