Thank you so much for this. Today my parents let me stay home from schol so I could finish my essay which is worth 200 points of my English grade. I was up til 4 am last night trying to get it done and I always feel overwhelmed. I have ADHD, depression and anxiety issues. I pull my hair out like a tricholomaniac, I bite my fingernails until they bleed, my mom has tried to get me to stop by getting thick manicures on them. I gnaw through them and when I can't bite them anymore I bite the skin on my fingers until they are too sore to even bend. Ever since a suicide attempt in the 7th grade my academics has plunged. I somehow managed to make it into the prestige college prep school I've wanted to go to since 2nd grade and even test into honors math there. I know I'm only a freshman with a 2.23 GPA but I feel like my life is already over, like I've failed before I started. This gave me hope. I've never admitted any of this to any of my friends, only my mom knows. I know feel so much better. Thank you.
