    I've been diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome and Gilberts syndrome. These basically cause extreme tiredness. Im currently in yr11 and have been predicted straight A's. Since I've been ill i have missed 5months of school. Im currently so far behind and struggling to get C's. Ive been slipping into depression and extreme stress. Any suggestions on what i can do for the stress.. are GCSE's that important? Please help..

    Dont enter in for the exams and do your gcses next year

    What do you reckon lead to this? Are you really stressed with everything? Have you had any traumas? How's your mental health before all this happened?

    I don't know how many GCSEs you are doing, but is there anyway that your school would let you reduce the number you are taking so that you have more time to focus on each of the ones you continue with?

    Best possible thing you can do is speak to the school about it. They've most likely had to deal with unwell students in the past and a friend of mine did his GCSEs at college a year late due to missing them after being involved in a severe car accident. As a fellow CFS/ME diagnosee, I think it's within your best interest health-wise to not exacerbate your condition by wearing yourself out physically and mentally
