    For the last few months more so, I feel like I have not been the same.
    Ever since secondary school I have noticed myself that I dont fit in with other people.
    I am now in my second year of A levels and this year has been worse than ever. Let alone my chaotic home life, in school in class I will have book in front of me or if the teacher is explaining something I cant focus and get distracted very easily.

    I revise watching videos and making notes and understanding before tackling exam style questions so theres nothing wrong with my revision technique but my grades are around C-Us which I cant myself get my head around.
    Another thing that I picked up about myself is that my emotions are so intense, I always need to cry before I fall asleep and just 2 days ago I had a 2 hour long bath just crying until my eyes went puffy.
    I really thing something isnt right but its not depression. I have never been diagnosed with depression but I have attempted suicide and I went through majority of my school with bad and depressing memories. Now Im much better and happier but I know that theres something not right. I cant open up to anyone which is why Im going anonymous but I need help and I have no one.

    Hi there. I would suggest you see your GP yes. There's clearly something going on and they will be the best people to help you work out what it is.

    ADHD isn't something that can develop, you are born with it, but it is totally possible to not notice it until later in life. With ADHD/ ADD you would usually have issues with concentration, maybe some restlessness or inability to sit still and you might have issues with time management or planning and notice issues with grades or school in general.

    To me though it sounds like maybe you're not quite over your (suspected) depression. Depression makes a big difference to your life and even when you're out of the depression you can find it difficult to properly get back to normal because you spent so long with depression as your normal.

    Obviously that's just what it sounds like to me though. I don't know your whole situation and I'm not a doctor so could be totally wrong.
    There's definitely something going on so go see your GP with a list and see what they say.

    Hope that helps
