Thank you for your letter. I’m very sorry to hear about your problems and I hope I can give you some advice that will help you.

You mentioned you were feeling stressed. This is quite a common problem amongst secondary students. Do you do much exercise? A sports scientist once advised me to do regular exercise. She said that physical activity releases chemicals in your brain called endorphins which help you to feel happy.
