    Hello everyone. I'm new round here, so sorry if this is in the wrong forum or anything...
    But I'm looking for a bit of advice. For the past two months I've felt generally really low and rubbish, nothing too major, but just totally unlike myself. I have no energy at all or motivation to do things that I previously found great pleasure in doing.
    The last two or three weeks things have taken a turn for the worse and I get so low at school that i sometimes go for days without talking much at all. I often have to leave my lessons because I'm worried that I'll break down into tears.

    I'm really scaring myself and I don't want to carry on like this. Any tips on how to overcome this? and am I depressed...??
    Thanks x

    Did anything happen in the last two months that started this change? Sometimes a big life event can spark low mood. Do you have any physical symptoms as well alongside this?

    I would encourage you not to keep things to yourself as it won't solve the problem. Talk to someone - parent, friend, teacher or GP. This is the first step, from then you can work out the next steps to take.

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
