Feeling hopeless about Sixth Form and life beond.Watch
Constant workloads being piled on top of eachother has left me with a lack of motivation and now im so behind in classes im not sure theres even a point in continuing.
I would like to see someone about me possibly having ADHD but CAHMs is apparently crap and frankly i feel it will just make me feel horrible going through it all, after having gone to the GP about anxiety and being told in faking it only to go through a panic attack in class that triggered what i can only assume is an asthma attack, i dont really trust the system much anymore put in place for teens.
I dont really know why im writing this, just wanting other peoples inputs i guess about their college situation and what i should do.
I’m also getting impatient waiting to find out how our grades will be awarded, I believe we’re meant to find out next week though (w/c 22nd feb). I’m on half term this week and if you’re too I’d suggest you try and catch up as much as you can while still taking time for yourself.
As for ADHD and CAHMs I have no experience but you’re health (including mental health) should be a priority if ADHD or anxiety symptoms are impacting you daily life you should go talk to your GP although given your bad experience maybe try asking for a different one to the last time.
I get what you mean about not wanting to go to a doctor because when I realised I needed help it scared me, I didn't want to be diagnosed with anything, I didn't want to go to a doctor just for them to tell me I'm being dramatic. So I looked into therapy which is free on the NHS and I actually had my first over the phone session today. I can tell it's really going to help and there's no pressure of a diagnosis involved and there's no scary feeling of being told by a GP that they can't do anything for me. It's just talking about how you feel and then a plan is put in place to help you reach small goals which eventually start to get you out of the vicious cycle of not being motivated.
As long as your thoughts about dropping out of sixth form don't come from the negative place of feeling unmotivated and feeling like there's no point in continuing, and that they come from a positive place of wanting change or wanting something that you feel is better for you and your future, you should definitely look into it more
