I have a CAHMS appointment next week for some eating disorder assessment, but I don't know if that even is the problem.

I guess Year 13 onwards hasn't been going well for me. I went through a really bad break up and with that, some traumatic stuff from the past was brought to light. The school and social services got involved, and it greatly affected my family life. It's been 4 months since the whole ordeal happened and I don't know where I am. I have times where I feel invincible or whatever, and I genuinely feel like I'm getting better. But then I have these really deep bouts of depression where I feel so low and done with ****. I don't know if this was triggered with the whole experience from 4 months ago, so it just doesn't make sense to me.

These changes sometimes happens in a matter of an hour. I can't even get my work done or any revision that I should be doing. Ive got all my offers and even firmed the uni I want to attend, but I don't even know if Im in the right mindset to even get the grades I need. I don't know man. I feel like a bum for not being able to do my work. Don't get me wrong, I still force myself to go to the library but nothing stays in my mind. I feel like **** rn, and I spose I just wanted to get this all out of my system.

Hi, I would suggest that you talk to your GP about how you've been feeling and especially about how it may have originated from what happened 4 months ago. I think some counselling sessions would really help. I think it's important you start becoming in tune with your thoughts; when you are having depressive thoughts, start asking yourself the question "Why am I feeling like this?" Keep breaking it down until you realise the sole cause of these thoughts. Then work to address it. Start using a mood journal which you can fill in once every morning and every night so you can log how you've been feeling. I think by talking about your thoughts with someone, it can help to focus your attention on the things that matter. In terms of the academic side, again use the "why" protocol in your mind. "Why can't I work?", Am I distracted? Is something else on my mind? What is on my mind?" Then, see if part of your life is out of balance, am I eating right?, getting enough sleep? Am i looking after myself - shower, hair etc?, exercising? socialising? Whatever may be out of balance, start addressing those things and you should slowly begin to get back into a routine that can make you feel good about yourself and get on track once again.
