This is my first blog but I'm really depressed and anxious at the moment because I suffer from emetophobia and claustrophobia which causes daily panic attacks. I'm currently in sixth form and my parents have treated me to a private school for all my years in secondary school and now sixth form. I've been finding the A levels super hard and I feel so demoralised because everyone else is 'cleverer' than me. This does not help with my panic attacks and after my January exams, I came out with a D and an E for my grades, My dad said that if I couldn't improve this I would be sent to a college. So now I've just finished my summer exams and he's reiterated that point and it makes me so depressed because I love this school and I've been looking forward to my last year in school for various reasons. Also I've never been exposed to 'state school' which will really effect my anxiety if I do have to go to college. My confidence has been completely destroyed because of all this and my parents really don't understand what I'm going through. I have now developed psoriasis because of my stress levels and it seems like I may collapse at any point..
I would really love some reassurance..
