    A few weeks ago, I had a very unexpected family bereavement and I can't bounce back from it at all. I can't concentrate on any work, I keep disassociating and spacing out, I'm just an emotional wreck at a time I can't afford to be. I'm in Year 13, so I have A Levels in just a few months, I need to revise, I have so much on the line with uni offers and all but I'm so close to breaking completely and I don't know how much longer I can take it. Sorry for rambling, I needed to let all of this out, thank you in advance.

    is it your first loss? I understand it must be difficult the timing of it all but trying to bury your feelings could do your mental health a lot of damage for the future so that's not the way to deal with it really. Focus on eating and sleeping as best as you can, work on basic things then the rest will come. Remember it's okay if you aren't quite the same a person after this, it just means that person meant a lot to you.

    Thank you so much for your response. This isn't my first loss, but it's the most difficult because this person was such a constant in my life. I guess that's why it's affecting me so much.

    its understandable with how close you were that its having such an affect on you. i wouldnt put any pressure on yourself at the moment but if you feel you can be around others then perhaps do some studying in a group that might make it feel less stressful. It doesn't always make much of a difference but you can let the universities know what has happen so they are aware when you get your results.
