Hi, I've started my GCSEs now, and so far so good, the only bad part was maths, I'm naturally not good at it, and during the exam I freaked out and forgot everything, I doubt I got anything. The worst part is I need a 6 in maths in order to do psychology. I got an 'episode' - essentially what I call my random sudden waves of sadness - during the exam also, I know it affects my performance, but I don't think there's anything I can do, I know I'll fail if I get one during the most important/ subjects I'm weak at, history, maths and Spanish. I don't really know what to do, I don't think I can do anything really. Just kinda ranting I guess.

Is it stress taking anxiety? If that’s the case then I’d recommend trying to find ways to calm down. My therapist taught me if you push in your stomach and do 12-15 deep breaths it will calm all that!

As far as math goes just find a tutor or check out Khan Academy on YouTube. Just try your best, I know you can do it!

Thank you, I do try to watch lots of videos on YouTube, and they've been a big help! If I ever freak out again I'll try the breathing thing, I'm not used to feeling anxious lol 😅 the one I'm worrying about is if I'm the opposite, cause then I'll lose all motivation
