    Hi

    First of all I am male and 16 years old. I feel mild pressure in my head, it isn't painful but it feels really strange and uncomfortable. I also have extreme brain fog and never have a clear head. I struggle to concentrate and I constantly feel lost and confused. I zone out almost immediately. I also suffer from symptoms of anxiety. I am at 6th form and have no friends in college nor outside of college. I never go out either apart from going to college and I have no hobbies at all. I don't communicate with people either. My home environment is also horrible. What can I do?

    Thanks for reading

    You should try consulting a counselor/doctor. Have you tried talking to your parents about what you're going through?

    To take the pressure away you could join local clubs.. or find a hobby/talent cos tbh everyone has one. Like you say you don't go out much so you could start doing other things like baking idk.

    Mindfulness is a Buddhist technique, (at school we had a Buddhist monk come in to see us, he taught us this to deal with GCSE stress) you take 10-15 minutes out of your day and think of nothing but breathing, it is important to do this everyday because if you take a day out you start feeling less and less and more sleepy. It really helped me. Google could have better answers
