Default I can barely manage

I'm going through this all now and have been for a while, I'm in my last year in 6th form and before I had depression I had everything planned like my entire future but now I'm not too sure. I'm getting deadline after deadline and I'm finding it very hard to meet them I feel like I'm falling so far behind my course consists of a lot of independent study and I was fine before but now I can barely manage. I try every night to sit there and do it but my mind is so focused on overthinking everything, stressing, worrying and just not being able to concentrate or focus on it. I know what I'm doing I just cant put it to words and I've tried to explain to my teacher what is going on but I'm finding it hard i just chicken out. I really want to tell her as i know she'll understand and shell be able to help me but I just honestly cant deal with 6th form anymore. All i want to do is crawl into bed and not come back out but then that will put me more behind like I just don't know what to do anymore. Do you know how hard it is to concentrate and actually sit down and do my work because this is becoming a daily struggle now and I just don't know how yous cope with it. All of this doesn't help as it brings me down more as I know I can do better but its like my body and mind wont allow me and I feel so lost and down right now...

Anyone got any advice or anything that can help me because i feel like I'm stuck in a downward spiral and a cycle that isn't getting better.

"Do you know how hard it is to concentrate and actually sit down and do my work because this is becoming a daily struggle now and I just don't know how yous cope with it. "

I am in the same boat. I've been procrastinating this huge paper that's due tomorrow.. still haven't made much progress. I can't focus. It's so upsetting to me because it should be something I enjoy writing about. :/

Some things that have been helping me is break down the progress of my assignment in increments. Give myself an hour to work, take a break, keep working, take a break, etc.

Often on these breaks I'll listen to some upbeat music and dance around, or eat a snack and play a game on my phone.

Remind myself that most of the pressure is coming from me. I'm a perfectionist when it comes to school assignments.
