    Hi, this is my first time doing one of these threads so I’m not sure if I did it right.

    I was feeling really down and sad for the last three months at school (all of Term 4), I didn’t want to socialise with my friends, I lost interest in all activities and I grew very worn out and tired by the time it came to 4pm.

    During these holidays I have felt much better, happier, going for runs and wanting to do things. I almost forgot about how I felt and thought I was gone. But in the last few days I feel like the feelings coming back, if that makes sense. I have had a few recurring thoughts and I can’t sleep at night. which I’m not )) why?

    I’m not sure what to do about this, or if I’m overreacting and ??b vb)6?just need to change my or to stop working myself up??

    Hi, welcome

    Several mental illnesses can come and go in cycles. But we cant diagnose, that us for the experts.

    Start with a GP visit.

    Its commendable you are seeking help
