I’ve been feeling really stressed since I started year 12 tbh, due to my anxiety and starting at a new school, but this past week I haven’t been able to sleep and I keep crying. I don’t want to tell my teacher because they have enough on their plate with exams being cancelled, helping year 11 and 13 and their own family to care for. But my mum has cancer, I have to share a room and my home just isn’t a pleasant place to be. I know people are dying, so if anything I’m lucky and my mum said my teacher won’t care if I tell them.

It is always worth telling a teacher. Yes, I can understand you feeling you might not be cared for because of the whole pandemic situation right now, but at least if you tell someone, they can sort something out for you, even if it isn't direct help from that teacher (referring you to a counsellor maybe?). Give it a shot! Hope it works out well xx

You should definitely tell her. She can help and you'll get through this. I know you don't want to put more stress on her plate but your health is just as important.

Hi, my mom had cancer when I was your age. If you need someone to talk to/need advice, feel free to DM me

It would be a good idea to seek professional help, for example from a therapist. But if that can’t happen at the moment, talking to a teacher or your friends really is the best thing you can do. My ex was diagnosed with depression last year, and her teachers were really supportive and helped her A LOT. Having someone to talk to really makes the difference
