    I'm in almost the exact same situation. I've been studying really hard because my classes are getting harder, and now, the pressure has caught up to me. I just received awful grades, and I'm honestly ready to give up. For years, I've been holding myself back because of my tentative hopes of the future and my parents, but I know, when I tell them what grade I got, they'll blame me. They'll say I must not have studied hard enough, but I really, really did.

    I can't handle this anymore. I really can't, and I'm terrified.

    I've never read It's Kind of a Funny Story but it does have a happy ending doesn't it? Where the hero discovers what he's best at and does it? I gather you're stuck in the early part? I hope your parents actually get it - that you really did give it your best shot. Good luck with that confrontation.

    If you are in college your grades are none of your parent's business.
    If you are in highschool or lower, just try as hard as you can to ignore your parents. People like to tear other's down. But you shouldn't let a grade make you kill yourself.

    i read the book and the movie. Cool story.

    What about asking for help to start with instead of shouldering the burden on your own?
