My name’s Rachel. I am 16 years old, taking A-Levels at a state college, and living sans my parents.
I hope to achieve great things. Unrealistically, I’d love to go study History and Politics MA at Edinburgh.
I struggle with deep-set Anxiety and Low Mood. Just today, I skipped school because I woke up and got kicked in the head by a low mood swing and a panic attack.
It is hard to NOT succumb to intrusive thoughts when help is not available and your support network is yourself.
Through Grow My Grades, however, I aim to document the next year and a bit of my life. God knows how long I’ll keep this up.
Questionable decision-making and constant surprises
