Lol what? Because I have mental health problems and am talking about them? I simply asked for stress relieving tips and u seem to have none so pls move. Depression isn’t a matter of just ‘stop moping’ u clearly know nothing of which you speak, and please don’t refer to me as ‘kid’ 🙄

Sorry to hear you're struggling. What usually helps you improve things? Perhaps you need a new outlet like art, writing, music or similar. What help are you getting for your clinical depression and anxiety?

Pay no mind to people writing mean comments, just report them.

Ignore some of the idiots on the thread, it is past midnight and the trolls have come out.

The fair! I cannot remember the last time I went to one. I hope you have an amazing birthday!

As for what helps me when I am stressed out:
- Yoga or meditation. I recommend this YouTuber 'YogaWithAdrian', she does some very simple routines. I don't even do the intense routines, I just do the very basic ones. It really helps me to sit down somewhere, force myself to be still and take deep breaths. I know it sounds silly but it is actually works! Stretching out just relieves muscle tension as well. Find yourself time in your day to just relax for a few minutes. Why I really recommend her is because she talks throughout the entire thing, says positive things like "allow yourself to love yourself" and whatnot. She also has a really soft, calming voice and it's like your mother is putting you to sleep and you are an infant once again. lol

And sometimes nothing helps but talking to a friend. There isn't a quick fix. However, if it helps, know that you are not the only one struggling. Let me know if you want more suggestions.

Edit: I was tempted to add 'healthy' tips, however I don't think an improvement in your physical health only will help. I don't really think my management of my own emotional health is very 'healthy' or effective so I am very cautious of giving you more advice. I will say however that you could try and find things you really enjoy and then allocate a time of the day when you do nothing but that. So for instance, you could decided to do school work until, say, 10 pm and then after that no work and just do something you absolutely love so that you go to bed in a better mood.

Lastly, my own week was so ****ing ****. We will get through it though. x

I do enjoy music as I sing but with UCAS and all my stress I’ve had difficulty having time for anything else tbh. My course is really intensive and frustrating. I’ve been on an NHS waiting list for a while so just waiting to get some professional help

Can you speak to your tutor about your stress? They may be able to help you find a way to manage your time and also factor in some time for self care as well.

Additionally, have you looked into Disabled Student's Allowance?

Yeah! The important thing is to keep moving. Thank you for the tips, i will try them, i wish i had time to not work on a specific day😂 my friends are great but idk I just feel like nobody actually cares or listens when I speak, that they listen because they know it’s right not because they want to uno?

Disabled Students Allowance? What’s that?

im scared to tell my tutor about my issues, i hide my struggles very well and everyone assumes I’m a happy cheerful person, I don’t think i can muster letting it be known for now. The best i can do confidence-wise is not make posts like this anonymous 😂

It's extra support in the form of software, hardware, non-medical human support and occasionally reimbursement for anything you buy in relation to your studies that most other student's wouldn't need to by because they don't have the disability you do. You would likely qualify as you have a mental health condition that has a significant impact on your ability to study.

I'd be honest with your tutor about how much you're struggling. Keeping it to yourself will only make things harder than they already are. They're there to help you. However, even if you don't disclose what's going on right now, you wouldnt be the first student to ask for support on how to go about managing your time better. They've heard it all before.

I hope you don't agree with the bullying I'm seeing because Anon has been reported - probably thought wrongly that their identity couldn't be seen as hiding behind Anon

as someone who has been in ur position wallowing in self pity really doesn’t help. it’s down to you to put yourself out there and find things that you enjoy to keep u happy. it’s just a bit sad to kinda be complaining about it. also how were u diagnosed if u haven’t seen a specialist yet??
Sometimes u get put on a waiting list to see if u get better before being offered help. There’s other ppl waiting
