    At what point should one think about medication?

    And this thread seems to be devoid of male influence, I'm intimidated! :p:
    I don't really know, but you could try asking. I asked recently, but they refused because they feel I'm too young at 18 to be using ADs, so they're trying me on counselling first. I hope you find the right treatment for you

    For the past week all I've done is watch cartoons on the internet. When I'm not doing that I sit crying and thinking about suicide. Tried revising this morning and ended up crying and hiding under my covers. The worst thing is that nothing is ever going to get any better. Why am I dragging this out? :cry:

    My legs are covered in scratches. It's been ages since I did that. The stress of this exam if getting to me so much. I probably won't get the grade in it I need (although if I get a B in the other modules I can get away with a D, I'm just not sure I'll have much more than 5 lines to write... I really hope everything comes back to me as I start to write).

    Just makes me feel even more like a failure and knowing that those pills are just a few metres away... I've spent the past hour or so just lying really still, not trusting me to move.

    I feel a little better now - as much as I won't enjoy it at first, a year out/resitting year 13 might be what I need to sort out my mental health. However, if I do get into uni, I'm going.

    Right I should get an early night and prepare for not be able to write anything tomorrow...

    Hmmm. Thanks.

    If you're too young then so am I!

    I just personally don't fancy the idea of counselling...

    Try your best. You might surprise yourself, I've gone into so many exams thinknig I know nothing then just written whatever comes into my head and done ok. You're right about the year out it might really help you get your head/feelings sorted out, trust me, uni when you feel like **** is no fun.

    Depends on the doctor you see. Mine had no problem giving me antidepressants at 18.

    I realised today that I may've ****** up my future completely, everything I've worked for gone in an hour and a half. I will never forgive myself. I just want to curl up into a ball and die.

    Yea, its maths. People always post them the day after/ few hours after if its a UK exam board.

    That exam was the difference between me doing the degree I wanted, and doing a different one I don't really want to do.

    Ah, ok. I still remain convinced that you can't get worried about it til August rolls around. What's the other course? There's always Clearing, and you never know, if you do drop a grade they may still take you. :hugs:

    I don't know yet, whatever is in clearing. Not sure if they;d take me on though coz this is my 3rd year of A levels, although Ive had problems with moving about and that, and they can see that on my UCAS form. Not seen my reference though :erm:

    I reckon my results are gonna turn out crap again this year :nothing:. I made no effort on my Media coursework, due to lack of inspiration and getting people to help me, so I ended up submitting bare crap. I haven't been trying 100% on my Textiles work either, it's probably worse than my GCSE work. I'm not sure I revised enough for my Philosophy exams, I just had my second one and I think I did crap in both. I'm such a bloody failure :sigh:. I'm not sure I can stand doing Year 14 at this rate, sixth form is actually killing me. The only subject I seem to be doing half decent in is English Lit, and at the end of this school year it'll be the only full A Level I'll have, along with a string of crappy AS grades. I can't stand this :cry:.

    I may just stop all this crappy education after this year though. My dad currently lives and works in the UAE, and the other day he called me up as he's found a possible job for me there, something to do with designing and advertising. I've got to fly over there after exams to speak with the guy and show my art work and stuff. And my dad said I may be able to move over there to work for at least a year. I am strongly considering this. The work might be paid, it might not, but I would really love to get away from studying and exams and this boring old school and town and just do something different. It would be a nice little break for me, and I reckon I could always go back into education later if I wanted to, or stay in the job if I turn out to be really successful. Plus, from what I've read, heard and seen, Abu Dhabi looks like heaven to live in. I think I might just do this, could improve my mental health greatly. What do you think?

    Ah, I also need to hurry up with learning to drive and take my tests soon (damn, why do I leave these things too late? :rolleyes:). They drive on the right as well, so that'll be a challenge. Plenty of stuff to do in the summer

    I honestly believe that everything happens for a reason... You never know what life will throw at you but it's got a reason for it. Probably strange logical given the context though

    Maybe. I dunno what I'm gonna do if I don't get in the course I wanna do. I don't think I'll be happy doing another degree tbh and to make it worse I'll have no job after the summer.
