Unhappy Boutta fail out of high school

I'm 17 and I'm in my senior year of high school, graduation is about a month away and I only take 2 classes that actually matter. Unfortunately, I'm failing both of them since my english teacher decided to make our final grade a research paper. Believe me when I say this, I am above and beyond just smart but I have not put any of my skills and knowledge into my schoolwork in about 6 years. I have been doing the bare minimum, cheating the system, and manipulating my way out of things but I can't find a way around this paper and it stands between me and graduation. My mental health is absolutely in the trash and I even told my teacher that who basically said "well that's your final grade so do it." Problem is I couldn't even do it if I wanted to, my brain just isn't functioning anymore. I don't know what to do since my brain has really shut down everything, even emergency responses like adrenaline, **** like that. Basically, I know exactly how ****ed I am and I can't do anything about it.

Well then, I guess you're not going to graduate.

There is no way around it. Can you get a tutor to help you structure your paper? What do your parents say?

You shouldn’t let one paper keep you from graduating unless you dont mind taking a GED class. I agre get a tutor, or if time is too short, get an adult (family, neighbor, anyone-post to a community forum like Nextdoor) to help you do this.
What’s the paper about? When is it due? How many pages?I was a teacher and school librarian-this probably involves internet research. Ill consider helping you unless the topic is way out of my comfort zone.
Do you think you have depression? That would explain the procrastination tho many people put things off.

I think you should explain your situation to the school. Many schools make accommodations for mentally ill students.

I ended up not doing the paper at all. My school is the kind of school that would never make it easier for mentally ill students but after pushing off the paper more and more my teacher said, "I just can't risk you not doing this paper," and gave me my own written final. So, looks like I'm gonna graduate after all.
