I am currently a Year 12 student and I have just gotten my recent biology and further maths sac mark scores and they are bad. In fact, I am ranked quite low in my class. No matter how hard I try, I just seem to tense up and freeze and completely flunk the sac. There are days when I just want to curl up in my bed and cry and not go to school. I have started to eat lots of comfort food (caramel slice, chocolate are my kryptonite) Eating all of this junk food has caused me to gain weight and break out into pimples and it flares up my eczema (red rashes.) I get so much anxiety going to school because I feel as if people are staring at me because my face is red, flaky and puffy. It doesn't help that some of the boys in my class ignore me.... like they talk to other girls but never to me. I just feel singled out and makes me feel like the ugly duckling, I have very few friends as well. I just feel so alone because everyone at school is invited to parties and functions and i never am. I have drifted away from many of my friends because they are going to many of the 'cool kids' parties. I was one of the very few people not invited to a birthday party, which the whole year level went to. Not to mention, I am also behind on my schoolwork because all I want to do is read books. I am the eldest child, and I feel a lot of pressure to do well in VCE. However, my parents don't seem to understand that VCE is hard or that it is embarrassing going to school looking like a bloated tomato.
