Mental health during lockdownWatch
How has everyone been coping in terms of their mental health during lockdown? It's been really difficult for me and I've now resorted to not being able to do anything during the day as I've lost interest in all my hobbies. I'm also insecure about my grades as I'm going to sit my A-level's next year and I don't want to ruin my chance of getting good grades. Some days I want to burn my books and some days I want to cry about absolutely nothing.I have no idea what is wrong with me right now, but I feel like a failure all the time
- I have spent 7 weeks in a locked hospital watching daytime TV and eating, if I can do that I can do lockdown for a few weeks in my own house
- absolute mental breakdown
- motivated to do more exercise and self care
- crying for no valid reason
At least you have a chance to change your future; you still have one more year to prepare for them. Unlike people like me where we are waiting for our results to be released next Thursday. I feel so useless being unable to control and determine my own future and with the IB and SQA results all being a disaster...I dont think that the A level results will be any different so my life is virtually destroyed unless a miracle happens.
UCAS predicted grades = A*A*AA
Predicted grades after January mocks = A*AAA
What I need = A*A*AA
The thing is based on my efforts and performances in tests I really think I deserve A*AAA at the very least but then as one of the grades will probably be adjusted down I might end up with no A*s at all or end up with a B which I really think is just so unfair but again it depends on what grades my teachers actually submit because to be frank I dont believe that they would have done me any favours
And then after I eventually finish, there's nothing. I was almost test ready before lockdown but they're still not letting people book tests so idk when that's going to happen, but to get a job I need to drive, so I'm also going to be unemployed for the foreseeable future and idk how I'm going to cope with no money and nothing to aim for.
