    i dont know if this is the right place to post this- but i would really appreciate some help!!

    I have been suffering from symptoms of depression since autumn last year- and it affected my studying.recently now, its become very bad. i havent ever been diagnosed with depression before, its the first time it has happened to me. i became very withdrawn, unmotivated, crying endlessly, have no motivation so on, i was scared to talk to people about it and tried to ignore it. i ended up getting alot of anxiety when being in public. So i was encouraged to see my gp (like literally forced, as i mentally and physically did not want to leave my house and had not done so for a while) and get help. she told me it was depression/low mood caused by stress.she wrote a letter for me to support my EC form. in the letter she advised that the note would be taken in great consideration so that i dont sit my exams, as i am unfit and unwell. she also noted that i have been very withdrawn, it was the first time i have been depressed, (so i have no medical history of this), and that i am seeing my gp every week because of my state.what are my chances that my EC application will get accepted? because i was suffering from symptoms earlier in the academic year, does that go against my favour?im really worried :/

Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
