Feeling good but not when it comes to how isolated I am due to ADHD so here's a feeble attempt at reaching out.

Hi I just want to talk. Nothing in particular, I just feel like ADHD stunts my social ability.

You should probably get that checked out. Living with undiagnosed ADHD really sucks and only makes your life worse. I had symptoms for many years just thinking I was broken compared to everyone else.

ok, I will think about it. I could probably use some medications to focus as my studies have not been going anywhere for about an year now.

Usually your symptoms are lifelong. Have your studies just been stagnant for a year or have they always been stagnant and they've just been extra stagnant during this year specifically?

Ups and downs, I have been in treatment for bipolar, but this year was the worst in terms of exams passed - only 3.

Bipolar sounds rough. Anyway at least you passed 3 exams, I'm still stuck on GCSE's as I've only passed science. I've basically given up at this point as I've tried 3 times. Anyway medication might benefit you but you never know until you try.

I'm in college studying Interactive digital media and I'm hoping after my 3 years there I can apply for an apprenticeship. I cannot see myself passing GCSE's anytime soon.

This sounds kinda dumb but giving yourself a superficial fake form of confidence actually kinda helps with social anxiety at least in my experience anyway. Even if you aren't confident just pretend you are and you'll eventually trick yourself into having a bit more confidence than when you started.

Honestly you're going to feel like a **** when you first start but you get used to it. Obviously it's not for everyone but it worked for me so I can only suggest.

EDIT: I loved how it censored the word "tw4t" lol

Honestly as long as you continue to stay in your lane and not starting to act like you're the superior then I think you'll do fine. Also I had no idea "tw4t" was a bad word. TSR mods are overzealous.
